Pakistan batsman run out in freaky fashion

Opener Aaron Finch and Mitchell Starc were the main Australian run-getters

"So it's about when you get your runs and I think Maxwell needs to get some runs in tough spots and make big scores and we know he's going to fail a few times, but just make some big scores when your team needs you".

The first Test ended in a draw in Dubai last week.

Former Australian cricketers Mark Waugh and Brett Lee say there is no question as to whether Australia played within the spirit of the game during Azhar Ali's run out on day three in Abu Dhabi.

Aaron Finch (24) and Travis Head (17) were at the crease with Australia, who are 47-1 and need another 491 for an unlikely win or to bat out two full days on a tired and spinning Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch.

No team has ever chased more than 418-7 to win a Test, made by the West Indies against Australia at Antigua in 2003.

Azhar Ali was run out in a weird fashion against Australia.

He has continued to impress in the ongoing second Test and took his third five-wicket haul as Pakistan bowled Australia out for just 145 in their first innings. The batsmen thought it crossed the boundary and he started chatting with his partner Asad Shafiq in the middle of the pitch.

During the ninth over of the morning session, Azhar Ali's run out in a freakish way while batting on 64 runs is unbelievable for spectators.

"There's nothing in there that is against the spirit of cricket, that's just proper cricket".

Lee compared it to Marnus Labuschagne's freakish run out on day two, suggesting the batsman was at fault on both occasions.

But the ball stopped short of the rope and Starc retrieved the ball to wicketkeeper Tim Paine, who removed the bails with an oblivious Azhar stranded well short of his crease.

Pakistan had earlier lost Haris Sohail for 17, stumped by Paine off Nathan Lyon after resuming at 144-2. Azhar denied there was any unsporting behaviour from Australian players in his dismissal.

Astonishing run out in Abu Dhabi!
