Azhar Ali’s Hilarious Run Out Has Left The Twitterati In Splits

Azhar Ali’s Hilarious Run Out Has Left The Twitterati In Splits”

Australia may be without batsman Usman Khawaja because of a knee injury, as it continues its run chase against Pakistan in the second Test in Abu Dhabi.

On third day of the Test, Azhar Ali, on 64, edged past gully on the third ball of the 53rd over bowled by Peter Siddle. The point of contention was whether the boundary rope was pushed back from its original position, which would mean that the ball should have technically fetched four runs.

However, in reality the ball stopped just before the boundary and was picked up by Mitchell Starc, who quickly threw the ball towards the wicket-keeper Tim Paine.

"No, I don't think it was bad sportsmanship [by Australia]".

'It's just a mistake from the batsman, ' Lee said.

Australia's punishment for a diabolical morning is the prospect of another full day in the field, with Pakistan having three days left to secure what in all likelihood will be series-clinching victory.

'If you're that stupid then you deserve to get run out, ' he said.

Pakistan delayed the declaration, mindful of Australia escaping defeat in the first Test in Dubai last week.

'Surely one of the funniest runouts ever, ' one person Tweeted.
