Pakistan's Azhar Ali lost his wicket in one of the most freaky run outs in cricket history on day 3 of the second Test match between Pakistan and Australia.
Fakhar, with his unflinching batting style, has already notched up two scores of over 50 while almost missing out on a debut ton in the first innings.
Abbas has been Pakistan s most successful bowler since making his Test debut in the West Indies a year ago, taking 54 wickets in nine-and-a-half games.
Azhar Ali clipped a ball off the edge of his bat and watched as it raced away towards the boundary. Muhammad Abbas' five-wicket haul helped Pakistan dominate.
Brief scores: Pakistan 282 & 144/2 (Fakhar Zaman 66, Azhar Ali 54 batting); Australia 145 (Aaron Finch 39; Mohammad Abbas 5/33, Bilal Asif 3/23).
Team-mate Yasir Shah is the fastest Pakistani to 50 wickets - in nine matches. Tim aggressively took the stumps down to dismiss Azhar Ali, who had no idea what just happened.
"At the moment I am feeling discomfort and if there is swelling tommorrow then we can summon reserve wicketkeeper as per the new rules", said Sarfraz. Having missed the follow-on mark, the Volts were sent back in and mustered a total of 218, which handed the hosts victory by an innings and 101 runs. But as he turned for the second run, the batsman slipped twice.
While Fakhar's exuberant stroke-making display all around the wicket would devastate any bowling attack, Abbas' is a quiet presence on the field till the time he gets the ball in his hands and begins to cast a spell of magical line and length which has reaped him rich rewards.
The ball however held up in the slow Abu Dhabi outfield, and while Azhar and Shafiq convened mid-pitch, Mitchell Starc threw the ball in to Paine to prematurely end Azhar's innings on 64.
Apart from Ali, Pakistan also suffered the loss of Haris Sohail in the first session of Day 3, who was dismissed by Nathan Lyon.
