Azhar Ali responds to the runout termed as most silliest runout in the history of cricket
*ISLAMABAD - Pakistani batsman Azhar Ali has responded over his runout which is termed as the most bizzae runout in the history of cricket.*
*He joked that he was preparing for a “life-time of teasing from his children”.*
“I know I will be asked this question for a long time now, especially when I go back home,” the batsman said. “My sons will ask it in a funnier way … they’re going to speak about it for years,” he said.
“Whenever I say something to them they are going to come back to me about this run out.”
Ali was involved in a comical run out on the third day’s play of the Abu Dhabi Test against Australia.
Ali and Asad Shafiq were standing in the middle of the pitch chatting because both batsmen thought Ali’s ball had crossed the boundary rope for a four — problem was that it stopped a few inches short.
Mitchell Starc collected the ball from the boundary and Tim Paine knocked over the stumps to complete the run out, all while Ali and Shafiq stood chatting.
