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

The second and final Test between Pakistan and Australia begins today. — File

The Pakistan batsman was well-set on 64, on day three of the second Test against Australia in Abu Dhabi, when he was dismissed in farcical circumstances.

Meanwhile, Mitchell Starc chased after the Kookaburra - which had actually stopped a few centimetres short of the boundary - and lobbed a throw into wicketkeeper Tim Paine, who whipped the bails off while Ali and Shafiq looked on with confusion. Assuming the ball had gone for a boundary and without waiting for the umpire's signal for four, Azhar Ali and his batting partner Asad Shafiq strolled to the middle of the pitch for a discussion.

Ali appeared paralysed on the pitch as he was forced to come to terms with what happened.

'I don't know how to describe it.

Fox Cricket host Neroli Meadows suggested that some viewers were questioning whether the dismissal was within the spirit of the game, but panelists Waugh and Lee had no issue with it. "As a young kid, my coach always told me you've got to run hard until it goes over that rope", Siddle laughed. I think we're all in a bit of shock'.
