Pakistan cricketer Azhar Ali loses wicket in silliest ever run-out!

Grant SmithOct 19, 2018

Pakistan declared their second innings at 400-9 with Babar Azam (99), Sarfraz Ahmed (81) and Azhar Ali (64) the main run getters.

Pakistan tightened their grip on the second Test against Australia in Abu Dhabi on Thursday as they reached 232-4 at lunch, in a morning marked by a freaky run out of Azhar Ali.

In Peter Siddle's over, Azhar Ali edged a delivery past gully on the drive driving the ball towards the rope.

Mitchell Starc collected the ball from the boundary and Tim Paine knocked over the stumps to complete the run out, all while Ali and Shafiq stood chatting. Starc, who was chasing the ball, collected it and wasted no time in throwing it back to the keeper Tim Paine.

A rather amusing situation happened during the match when Azhar Ali played the shot through slips and was sure that it will go for four and started a mid-wicket chat with Asad Shafiq.

"I don't know what specifically happened".

"But I think throughout the day he was up and about, moving around, helping us when we came in and trying to help us in the rooms".

Mark Waugh said the run-out was in the grand final for the worst dismissal ever.

"If you're that stupid then you deserve to get run out", Waugh quipped.

Serious questions will linger about how Australia managed to end up so far behind the game after an inspired Nathan Lyon spell left Pakistan reeling at 5-57 in the first innings.

'It's just a mistake from the batsman, ' Lee said. "They're playing by the rules, they've done nothing wrong the Aussies and unfortunately the batsman have made the mistake".

However, there was more action to follow as Pakistan increased their lead against Australia.
