On Day 3 of the second Test between Pakistan and Australia at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the middle-order Pakistani batsman Azhar Ali was run out in a most hilarious fashion.
During the 53rd over of the Pakistan second innings, Ali edged a Peter Siddle delivery which passed the gully fielder towards the third man boundary. Ali and his partner Asad Safiq thought that ball had crossed the boundary rope and came in the middle of the pitch to discuss something.
However, the ball itself stopped inside the rope; Mitchell Starc chased it and threw the ball back to the wicket-keeper Tim Paine, who removed the bails quickly to run-out the batsman.
Both Ali and Safiq looked bewildered as the Australian team jumped in joy.
Here’s the video:
