Watch: Shoaib Malik smashes stumps instead of ball!
In the crucial fourth ODI of the five match series between England and Pakistan on Friday, veteran Pakistani batsman Shoaib Malik lost his wicket in hit-wicket dismissal.
He became just the eighth man to ever get out hit-wicket twice in one-day international (ODI) cricket. In the previous occasion, he suffered hit wicket against Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan in 2003.
In the 47th over, Shoaib Malik who was batting on 41 off 26, tried to play the square cut off a Mark Wood slower but ended smashing stumps instead of the ball.
Don’t see this too often!
Wicket goes to who? 🤣🤣
