Cricket And MMA Fans Are Convinced Marnus Labuschagne And Darren Till Are Long Lost Brothers
The Ashes has just kicked off and fans seem to be taking a particular interest in one of the Australian players.
Marnus Labuschagne is a brilliant cricketer.
He's one of the best on the planet with the bat-in-hand and as a fielder he's equally as good.
But his ability as an athlete isn't why people are fascinated by him - well, at least not cricket die-hards.
A bunch of mixed martial arts fans have been watching the cricket closely to get a glimpse of the bloke that is a dead ringer of one of the best fighters on the planet.
That's right, Labuschagne has a spitting image doppelganger and his name is Darren Till.
Having caught English star Ben Stokes out early in the first Ashes Test, there seemed good reason as to why Labuschagne's name was trending on social media - but it wasn't for the impressive piece of fielding.
No, his name was actually trending because MMA fans had bombarded Twitter with images of Darren Till instead.
Grnated, this is not a new discovery, but it seems the commencement of the Ashes has brought the conversation back.
Now MMA and cricket fans are convinced that the duo are long lost brothers.
Here's some of the best tweets from past and present which truly show how much the pair lookalike.
