The cricket world became witness to probably one of the most bizarre run outs ever in the history of cricket when Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali found himself on the way to pavilion after getting out in the most comical fashion possible.

Twitter reacts to dumbest run out of the year
This must be the biggest talking point of the day, at least to the netizens.

The incident took place on Day 3 of the 2nd Test between Pakistan and Australia. It was during the 52nd over of Pakistan innings, bowled by Peter Siddle. Ali, who was batting on 64, edged a delivery past gully on the drive, and the ball ran towards the rope. The Pakistan batsmen assumed that it was going for a four, and he decided to get involved in a discussion with his partner Asad Shafiq in the middle of the pitch.

But in reality, the ball stopped just short and was picked up by Mitchell Starc. The left-arm seamer quickly threw the ball towards wicketkeeper Tim Paine, who took down the stumps to dismiss Ali. On the other hand, both Pakistani batsmen were left stunned and Ali with no option left had to head back to pavilion. Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur shook his head in disbelief.
