It’s not only by fours and sixes that an innings is build up of, 1s and 2s count quite a lot while it’s hard to take risks. And it is a run out, when the strength of fielders and wicket-keeper comes to account. Sometimes it is brilliance of the fielders, sometimes it is miscommunication, but sometimes it is sheer luck and things turn funny. Here is a compilation of 10 such incidents in cricket to give your workaholic Monday a fun twist!
10. Chilling out on the crease?
Completed your run? good. Then started chiling? very bad. See as dada shouts to watch out for the ball but it’s too late and Virender Sehwag loses his wicket. Great presence of mind by Sangakara to take a pause before throwing the ball.
9. The return of Chilling out on the crease!
Seems like Paul Collingwood also needs some lesson on when not to chill out. Watch as he gave his wicket away to the New Zealand team while unaware of where the ball is.
8. Strike a pose !
Is your follow through awesome? is it very photogenic? Hold the pose then…untill the oppostion runs you out and that too from in front of your eyes. Take the tutorial from Mr Shane Thomson
7. Never celebrate fellow’s success…NEVER !
So, Sangakkara reached 200 and it was time to celebrate. Muralitharan stepped out of his crease to congratulate him but HEY ! you are run out man. Don’t miss Sanga’s expression. #trolled.
6. Miss and a hit !
Who says you are lazy when there is this clip where even after missing it twice, the batsman stood out. From the fielder, to the wicket keeper, to another fielder by a miss throw and back to the bowler but still out. Check out who the people involved are:
5. When being flexible costs
When on field, you must be jumping and running, full of life. But your jumps should be well timed. Misbah’s spontaneity and a quick jump to reach the crease proved to be lethal as he lost his ground when he was far above the ground.
4. The question is, you or me?
It’s not always about if the bails are off, sometimes it’s about who is the victim. Both the batsmen in the strikers end due to miscommunication and both at almost the same distance from the crease. While the decision that someone is out is confirmed, the third umpire is consulted to know who is the batsman, Inzamam or Yousuf? Watch it to know:
3. Rally of misses
IPL itself is an event full of events but Shikhar seems to have quite keen to add some more laughs to it. With the three misses commited by the opponent, he had thre chances to get back to his crease but still, he got out making it one of the most bizarre dismissals.
2. Either ways, I’ve got you bro!
Seems like the out was destined to happen to Shaun Marsh. First, the ball rises to make it a caught and bowled. When he thought the luck is with him as the ball slipped out of the bowler’s hand, it fell on the stumps to remove the smile from his lips.
1. Badluck at its best !
But the most unlucky deal was the one with Ben Cutting. As Kieron Pollard tries to stop the ball, it slips off his hand, passes through in between his legs and hits the stumps to get ben out.
Weird as weird can be, these on field run out situations made people have a laugh while it happened. Stay hooked for more such videos.
