Marnus tried to fool the batsman by faking a throw during the domestic limited over match against Cricket Australia XI on Friday. Queensland Bulls were penalized 5 runs for Labuschagne’s action.

Under new rules effective from Thursday, cricket players can be ordered off the field if they commit major offences.
