Twitter reacts to Azhar Ali’s bizarre run out in the second Test against Australia


Pakistan middle-order batsman Azhar Ali was involved in a hilarious run-out on Day 3 of the second Test between Pakistan and Australia in Abu Dhabi. The incident, which took place in the 53rd over of Pakistan’s innings, will most likely go down as one of the funniest run-outs ever in the history of cricket.

Ali was batting on 64 when he edged a Peter Siddle delivery that went past the gully fielder and was racing towards the boundary. But lack of pace meant the ball stopped just before the boundary line.

Assuming that the ball had crossed the boundary rope for a four, Ali stopped in the middle of the pitch and began conversing with his batting partner Asad Shafiq. He was completely unaware that Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc had run towards the boundary line and threw the ball to wicket-keeper Tim Paine, who dislodged the bails without any hesitation.

The Australians soon began to celebrate even as Ali stood in utter disbelief, shocked at what had just unfolded. He was eventually given out and had to return after scoring 64 from 141 balls.
