While bloopers are always funny, it gets funnier when they’re done by cricketers. One of the major reasons for that is the fact that they aren’t professional or trained actors and thus, they are bound to make mistakes during a shoot. Recently, a few bloopers of three Australian cricketers went viral on social media.
Marnus Labuschagne, Usman Khawaja and Grace Harris were recently seen in a video, where the two male cricketers made a sandwich, and the female cricketer anchored the show. The name of the show was “Blast Bites”. However, Cricket Australia recently posted bloopers of the three cricketers in a video on Twitter on Monday.
“Three cricketers in a kitchen. What could go wrong? 😜🧑🍳
@Uz_Khawaja | @marnus3cricket | @189Grace” read their caption, while tagging the three Aussie cricketers. At the start of the video, Harris stuttered time and again, and struggled to recollect the names of Khawaja and Labuschagne as well.

However, the Sydney Thunder batter, as well as Australia’s number three batter, then continued their antics and kept committing silly mistakes during the shoot. Thus, the video containing bloopers turned out to be hilarious, and managed to entertain the fans on social media.
In the meanwhile, Khawaja had a dream comeback to international cricket during the fourth Ashes Test match in Sydney. The 35-year-old scored 137 and an unbeaten 101 in the first and second innings respectively. Yet, the batter is sure of playing the fifth Ashes Test match in Hobart, as Travis Head is expected to return to the XI.
“I came in here for Travis Head, he’s had a great series and I know the selectors have made a lot of tough decisions in this series and I don’t really expect it to be any different because I scored back-to-back tons. It’s just the way it is. All I’ve done is I’ve had an opportunity for Australia, scored some runs which I am grateful for,” said Khawaja at the end of Day four’s play.
