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

Nathan Lyon celebrates after dismissing Asad Shafiq of Pakistan during day one of the second test match

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.

Marvel's IRON FIST Cancelled at Netflix
Well, here we are now only a few days later, and already a fan petition to save the series from cancellation has surfaced online. For that level of resolution, fans just might need a third season. "Don't leave us with a cliffhanger like this".

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.
