On day 3 of the second Test between Pakistan and Australia, cricket lovers around the globe witnessed the most bizarre run out involving Pakistani batsman Azhar Ali. After playing a shot, the batsman thought he’d scored a boundary. Without knowing the ball had stopped just short of the boundary rope, Ali stood in the middle of the pitch with teammate Asad Shafiq for a chat.

Australian left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc, who was chasing the ball, saw the two batsmen chatting in the middle of the pitch. He quickly picked it up and threw the ball to wicket-keeper Tim Paine, who effected the run out. The Pakistani player was back in the pavilion after scoring 64 runs, and the dismissal quickly became the butt of jokes among cricket fans.

While most cricket fans couldn’t believe what they witnessed, others roasted the batsman saying he had suffered a ‘brain freeze’. And then there were these hilarious memes:

Thankfully, Ali saw the lighter side of the incident and said his sons are going to give him a tough time over the run out.

“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 quoted as saying by Samaa TV.
