New Zealand duo one-up Azhar Ali's humiliation


//

Just a day after Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali's horrendous brain fade left him run out during the second Test against Australia, two New Zealand batsmen have one-upped him.

New Zealand first-class side Otago was up against Wellington at the Basin Reserve, when Otago pair Nathan Smith and Michael Rippon were caught up in a hilarious mix-up. 

Rippon flicked the ball through the leg side and immediately set off with the intention to come back for a second run. However, he slipped over at the non-strikers end.

Rippon's partner Smith was unaware of what had happened to his teammate and when he realised, he tried to turn on the brakes but lost his footing as well, as both batsmen were left sprawled out on the turf as Wellington wicketkeeper Lauchie Johns broke the stumps.

The incident came less than 24 hours after Azhar Ali's comical run out which former Australian captain Allan Border labelled as "total stupidity". 

Azhar had nicked Australian paceman Peter Siddle through the slips and assuming the ball had gone all the way to the boundary, he decided to have a mid-pitch conversation with the non-striker Asad Shafiq. 

The Australians realised Ali's mistake as Mitchell Starc flung the ball in from the boundary to captain Tim Paine who broke the stumps at the strikers end to find a bemused Ali well short of the mark.

However, luckily for Ali, the incident did not end up costing his side as Pakistan wrapped up a dominant 373-run second-Test victory on Friday.
