South African-born Marnus Labuschagne made history by becoming the first concussion sub in Test cricket in the match between Australia and England in London which ended in a draw on Sunday.

Born in Klerksdorp, Labuschagne moved to Australia at the age of 10 in 1994. Now 25, Labuschagne has represented Australia in six Tests.

On Sunday, Labuschagne replaced teammate Steve Smith who was ruled out of the remainder of the match with concussion.

He played a crucial role in his side securing a draw as he top-scored with 59 from 100 balls. Australia ended the day 154/6, set 267 to win.
