“There”s always heaps to improve on. In one-day cricket, an area that I definitely want to continue to get better at is probably that later stages in the innings, the boundary options at the back-end of a one-day game,” he said.
Despite being happy about his game and where he is currently, Labuschagne felt one can keep improving and that is the beauty of the game.
“That’s the beauty of the game. You”re never satisfied with where you are. You are obviously happy with where you are, but you want to be better. You want to continue to drive yourself to get to the absolute best out of yourself,” he added.
Thanks to his consistent performances, he also rose to career-high No.3 in the ICC Test rankings for batsmen last season, only behind compatriot Steve Smith and India skipper Virat Kohli. He also been a regular in ODIs in recent times but the same isn’t the case in the shortest format.
