Azhar Ali's freaky run out for Pakistan against Australia

Azhar Ali's freaky run out for Pakistan against Australia

The incident happened in the 52nd over when Australian pacer Peter Siddle got Ali to edge a delivery to third-man.

Here we're bringing you a contender for the most freakish cricket dismissal ever seen.

The former England captain may have scored nearly 8,000 global runs and 18 Test centuries, but he says Abbas is the type of bowler that would make him "poop his pants". The Pakistan batsmen assumed that it was going for a four and started having a discussion in the middle of the pitch.

But Mitchell Starc picked up the ball less than a yard from the boundary and threw it back to wicketkeeper Tim Paine, who ran Azhar out, leaving the Pakistani duo - who have combined experience of 130 Tests and over 9,000 runs - stranded and looking bewildered.

"Crazy, incredible. For a guy who has played more than 60 Test matches", one commentator proclaimed.

"You've got to get behind the crease, that's your job".

"I have never seen that before, I've seen a lot of odd things but nothing quite like that".

'I don't know how to describe it.

"It's official; Marnus Labuschagne has now been superseded as the dumbest batsman".

Labuschagne, playing only his second Test, grafted his way to 43 but was dismissed second over after lunch becoming Abbas's 10th victim in the match.

Azhar denied there was any unsporting behaviour from Australian players in his dismissal."I don't think it was bad sportsmanship and I take full responsibility as I feel I was a bit ignorant".

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

"There's nothing in there that is against the spirit of cricket, that's just proper cricket".

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