His 143* architected Queensland's win as they continue to top the tables. However, this is about a rare feat. <p></p> <p></p>An on-field joke by the Australian opener proved costly as he was slapped with a rare five-run penalty. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/queenslands-marnus-labuschagne-penalised-under-new-mcc-rule-of-fake-fielding-647097"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>The first part of the game's law 27.1 states, "The wicketkeeper is the only fielder permitted to wear gloves and external leg guards." <p></p> <p></p>Wicketkeeper Jimmy Peirson gave the ball a chase towards square leg after throwing his glove on the field. Renshaw used wicketkeeper's gloves to catch a throw from Peirson. With a smile, he handed the gloves to the keeper and was returning to his fielding position when umpires made him aware of the rule and slapped Queensland with a five-run penalty. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="und"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Renshaw?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Renshaw</a> <a href="https://t.co/LPpy7ChFhX">pic.twitter.com/LPpy7ChFhX</a></p> <p></p> Kyran Pick (@kyranpick) <a href="https://twitter.com/kyranpick/status/972120027574034433?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 9, 2018</a></blockquote> <p></p>Renshaw took it as a learning experience and described it as funny. <p></p> <p></p> The glove dropped right next to me so I thought it d be quite funny to put the glove on and try and take a catch with the glove on. I didn t really think of the rule at the time, I just thought it d be quite funny. But the umpires came together and said it was five penalty runs. I know that you re not supposed to do it, but I thought it was just one of those frowned upon things, Renshaw told <i>Cricket Australia</i>. <p></p> <p></p>Renshaw represented Australia in 10 Tests, scored 623 runs at 36.64. After having a promising start to his international career, the 21-year-old Yorkshire-born Australian cricketer lost form and was dropped from the national side.
