Pakistan cricket team has always given fans a moment of laughter, or probably an incident which will always remain in their memory. From drop catches which will make you roll on the floor laughing, to run-outs which we watch on a loop, we must thank Pakistan cricket. Well, get ready with your another thanksgiving note because Pakistan has just delivered a gem which fans will remember for long.
The second Test between Pakistan and Australia saw a riotous run-out. Two Pakistan batsman Asad Shafiq and Azhar Ali started having a chat on the pitch thinking the ball has reached the boundary when the latter played it down to the gully region.
Fans were in splits watching the video and went on to lash out at the batsman for his casual approach.
Here is how they reacted:
The list of insanely ridiculous run outs of Pakistani batsmen is long but Azhar Ali has just turned in an all time top five entry.— Ahmer Naqvi (@karachikhatmal) October 18, 2018
Azhar Ali edged the ball through the gully thought it has gone for FOUR, both batsman stood at the center & started talking to each other without watching the ball.— Saad ???????? (@iSaadAwais22) October 18, 2018
Starc ran behind the ball & threw it back to the keeper who ran Azhar Out.
What a shame !#PAKvAUS #PAKvsAUS pic.twitter.com/KyvataISzd
Unbelievable run out in Abu Dhabi. Pakistan batsmen think ball had gone for four. It hadn't and Azhar Ali is run out while chatting to his partner in the middle of the pitch!— John Etheridge (@JohnSunCricket) October 18, 2018
Pakistani batsmen thought the ball has reached the boundary and started chit chat before losing a wicket. ???????????????? pic.twitter.com/l9lksZq6iX— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) October 18, 2018
Azhar Ali knows some innovative ways to get run out. https://t.co/sYLGsKOpNG— C. (@vanillawallah) October 18, 2018
Drama is going here INCREDIBLE! The two batsmen are chatting in the middle of the pitch, without realising that the ball hadn't reached the boundary ????— محمد بلال یاسر (@BilalYasirBjr) October 18, 2018
Azhar Ali is run out for 64#PAKvsAUS pic.twitter.com/wRUfiWUOVm
Azhar Ali was run-out, plain and simple. As was Ian Bell in 2011 v India. Naive from the batsman to get out like that, even more naive if the captain recalls him.#PAKvAUS— Suneer (@suneerchowdhary) October 18, 2018
Oh dear. Pakistan's batsmen assume the ball has gone to the boundary at third man, Starc fires back a return after it stops a few inches from the rope, and Paine whips off the bails with Azhar Ali conversing with Asad Shafiq in mid-pitch.
