Marnus Labuschagne enjoyed being back under the helmet for the Aussies on Day 2 of the SCG Test in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar series.

The Aussie batsman, who missed a deserving Test ton after falling on 91 earlier in the day, teased India opener, Shubman Gill, by asking him about his favourite batsman.

Labuschagne, who was fielding at the short leg, asked the opener: "Who's your favourite player?" between deliveries of Mitchell Starc's first over.

"I will tell you after the match," replied Gill.

Labuschagne went on to ask whether it was Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli.

"After the ball... Sachin? Do you reckon Virat?" he said. Gill departed after registering his maiden Test half-century.

Labuschagne did not just have a chat with Gill but also continued the conversation when Rohit Sharma was on strike.

"Hey, what did you do in quarantine?" he asked the India opener, who made a comeback to Indian XI in this Test match after spending 14 days in quarantine.

Australia were bowled out for 338 in the first innings with Ravindra Jadeja being the pick of the Indian bowlers with four wickets. Jadeja also run-out centurion Steve Smith for 131.
