Earlier before lunch, middle-order batsman Azhar Ali was run out in a bizarre fashion.
In Siddle’s over, 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. Ali did not even bother trying to run back and just looked at the bails been taken off with a perplexed look.
The comical run out left twitterati laughing as several described it as one of the most unbelievable run-outs in the history of cricket.
