I think there are some guys who played exceptionally well, Usman (Khawaja) played very well, Nathan Lyon played exceptionally well.
But I think all our fast bowlers — I saw them bowling for four or five years — it certainly wasn’t the best bowling they did, and we still had to chase only 280.
I think there’s a lot to be said for where this team is at, and how much our team is improving from one game to the next.
I think that’s the important part for me to win such a tight game.
After the first Test match of the Ashes in the English camp, there was a lot of talk about how it felt like they won, given the way they played cricket.
I know the English, and everyone said they felt like they won the game, Labuschagne said.
We certainly didn’t have that feeling, but I thought they potentially played better than us at certain points.
Potentially the batters put a bit of pressure on us, but at the end of the day it’s all about the result and we got the chocolates despite playing a below average game for an Australian cricket team.
Labuschagne fell for a golden duck in the first innings and scored 13 runs in the second, giving up his place at the top of the world Test rankings to Joe Root of England.
Marnus Labuschagne said that after failures in the first test of the Ashes, he demands oplayed, was certainly aggressive and attacking, which is good.
But I think if the wicket dictates more how to play, it will be more interesting to watch.
Ash’s second Test match will start at Lord’s on Wednesday.
