Social Media Reacts to Azhar Ali’s Run Out in 2nd Test

Pakistan cricketer Azhar Ali loses wicket in silliest ever run-out!

The former England captain may have scored nearly 8,000 worldwide runs and 18 Test centuries, but he says Abbas is the type of bowler that would make him "poop his pants".

Abbas, 28, is enjoying a superb series against Australia in Dubai and claimed match figures of 7-85 in the opening Test which ended in a draw.

The Australian fielders laugh after running out Azhar Ali during day three of the second test match against Pakistan at Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi.

There was hope within the Australian camp that Khawaja had avoided serious injury and could even bat when the tourists resume at 1-47 on Friday, requiring another 491 runs to pull off a world-record run chase in the series-decider.

Paine wasted no time in whipping the bails off as Ali stood stunned as to what had just unfolded.

But none of them could go on to score a ton, with Azam falling agonisingly close to his maiden hundred, trapped leg-before by medium pacer Mitchell Marsh.

He and Sarfraz added 135 runs for the sixth wicket to end any hopes Australia had of a fightback after taking the second new ball at 273 for five. After edging the ball, Ali and Asad were seen chatting in the middle of the pitch without realising that the ball hadn't reached the boundary.

Scientists Warn Extinction Now Outpaces Evolution
The scientists responsible for the study hope that their work will spur more environmental protection for large animals. And, it would take 3 to 5 million years to reach the levels they're at now, even if humans cease destructive practices.

In the past as well, Pakistan cricket team had become the butt of jokes due to their poor performances and frivolous antics on the cricket field.

Lee compared it to Marnus Labuschagne's freaky run out on day two, suggesting the batsman was at fault on both occasions.

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur's disbelieving reaction said it all as Azhar fell for 64 to leave the hosts at 160-4 and leading Australia by 297 runs in their second innings.

Play was tiresome to begin with, but was lit up by Azhar's embarrassing dismissal.

Earlier, Haris Sohail proved to be the first casualty as he was stumped out from the bowling of Nathan Lyon after making 17 runs.

The three-match T20I series against Australia will start on October 24 in Abu Dhabi.
