WATCH: Shoaib Malik’s comical hit-wicket dismissal against England

Posted On / /

Pakistan’s senior batsman Shoaib Malik got out in a bizarre fashion against England in the 4th ODI played in Trent Bridge on Friday.

Malik, who was batting on 41 off 25 balls during the 47th over of the match, got dismissed after he clattered his stumps while trying to play a late square cut of Mark wood’s delivery.

It was surely one of the most hilarious hit-wicket incidents by a seasoned campaigner such as Malik.

In the process, Malik also became the 8th player to be dismissed hit-wicket on two different occasions in ODI history. He joined the likes of Allan Border, Kumar Sangakkara and Misbah-ul-Haq on this infamous list after having been first subjected to the same fate back in 2003.

Here’s the video:

As far as the match is concerned, Ben Stokes’s unbeaten 71 rescued England from a middle-order collapse as the World Cup hosts and favourites beat Pakistan by three wickets with three balls to spare.

England has now sealed the five-match series at 3-0 up with one more game to go.
