During the seventh match of the ongoing Marsh One-Day Cup between Victoria and Queensland at Junction Oval, Queensland all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne’s pants coming off didn’t stop him from running out Victoria batsman Chris Tremain.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the 29th over when Will Sutherland hit a Matthew Kuhnemann delivery towards the cover region and called for a quick single.
Labuschagne, who was fielding at covers, ran to his left to dive and stop the ball. In what was a solid fielding effort, it saw the fielder returning the ball to wicket-keeper Jimmy Peirson in one go to affect the run-out.

After electing to bat first, Queensland posted a challenging 322/9 on the board. Skipper Usman Khawaja anchored the visitors’ innings as he scored 138 off 126 balls while adding 185 runs for the opening wicket with Sam Heazlett.
In reply, Victoria got off to a poor start and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Aaron Finch in the beginning and Will Sutherland towards the end showed some resistance, but the hosts could only manage 168 on the board.
