Pakistani cricketers have always been infamous for their running between the wickets. A latest example is the most funniest run-out ever happened in history, which has amused cricket lovers across the world. The bizarre run-out in question took place in the ongoing second test between Pakistan and Australia in Abu Dhabi, UAE, yesterday.
Pak's number 3 batsman Azhar Ali hit a Peter Siddle delivery into the slips. The ball dodged the fielder and headed to the boundary. Azhar and Asad Shafiq, who's at the non-striker's end, were convinced that the ball has cleared the boundary rope and stopped in the middle of the pitch for a small chat.
And here begins all the drama. The ball didn't clear the boundary and stopped just a feet away from the rope. Mitchell Starc threw it back to wicketkeeper Tim Paine, who calmly caught the ball and whipped the bails off in a jiffy. The umpires had a brief discussion as to which batsman was actually dismissed, and finally declared Azhar Ali out. Needless to say that the Pak batsmen, team and their supporters were in for a huge shock.
Pakistan cricket at their very best! The two batsmen are chatting in the middle of the pitch, without realising that the ball hadn't reached the boundary ðŸ˜²â€” Deepak Raj Verma (@iconicdeepak) October 18, 2018
