Some English cricketers took to twitter to make fun of Alex Hales’ facial expressions while he was taking Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq’s catch.

First innings centurion, Misbah surprised everyone when, facing only the second ball of his innings, he attempted to hit Moeen Ali for a huge slog sweep. While the shot was hit hard and high, it failed to cover the distance and was brilliantly caught by Alex Hales, running around at deep midwicket. 

Video of the catch:

It was Moeen Ali who started the proceedings on twitter. He posted the picture of the moment when Hales was taking the catch along with the caption:”Misbah was unfortunate!! Great effort catching the ball looking in different directions!!”

Jos Buttler and Stuart Broad soon joined the trolling session.

 

Alex Hales too took the banter in a sporting manner.

Meanwhile, resuming the day on 253 for 7, England could add only 19 runs to their overnight score and were dismissed for 272, handing Pakistan a healthy lead of 67. In their second innings, Pakistan started poorly and were in a spot of bother after losing 4 wickets with only 60 on the board. A 69 runs partnership between Younis Khan and Asad Shafiq steadied the ship for the visitors. Useful contributions from Shafiq(49), Sarfraz Khan(45) and Yasir Shah(30*) then propelled Pakistan to 214 for 8 by the end of third day’s play. Pakistan’s overall lead is now 281 and Mohammad Amir (0*) and Yasir Shah would like to add some more runs when they resume batting on the fourth day.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
