On third day of the Test, Azhar Ali, on 64, edged past gully on the third ball of the 53rd over bowled by Peter Siddle. As far as the batsmen were concerned, they were convinced it had trickled to the ropes.

"It was one of those things where neither Asad or I had a sight of it. even when the throw was coming back I thought he's just thrown it after the ball hit the (boundary)".

Assuming that the ball has reached the fence, Ali along with his teammate Shafiq did not bother to finish the run and stopped midway on the pitch for some chit-chat.

Play was boring to begin with, but was lit up by Azhar's embarrassing dismissal.

This is as bad a run out as you'll ever see in worldwide cricket.

Earlier, after the wicket of veteran batsman Mohammad Hafeez early in the innings, opener Fakhar Zaman and Ali put up a good partnership to steady the Pakistan innings.

Lyon (4-135) was again the pick of the bowlers in Pakistan's second dig, while part-time legspinner Marnus Labuschagne (2-74) took his series tally to seven wickets.

Not knowing what had happened, the batsman stood in the middle of the pitch confused for some time before registering what had happened and walked off. I take full responsibility for it. No one came in my way. "I think there's no issues with it, I'm happy with both decisions". Tim Paine whips the bails off!

The wicketkeeper brushed off the knock as he went on to make 81 off 123 balls, helping the hosts set a mammoth target of 538.

The tourists were 1-47 in reply at stumps with Aaron Finch unbeaten on 24 and Travis Head 17 not out.
