Run out has become a serious concern for Pakistan cricket team in recent times. They are the worst team in 2015. They suffered a maximum number of run outs. In 27 ODIs, Pakistan suffered 21 runouts, the worst in 2015 by any teams.
They are yet to sort out their problem. It is frustrating and very disappointing to watch run out. In most of the cases, Pakistan batsmen have got run out not because of athleticism of opposition fielders, but owing of their own fault-misunderstanding.
The current bunch of Pakistan team has been playing together for a while. Frequent run out reflects the shabby state of the dressing room.
In the second ODI of the series against England, Pakistan captain Azhar Ali was got run out as session campaigner Mohammad Hafeez left him on the brink of uncertainty. The sceptical call-yes and no- revealed the willy-nilly bonding between players which affecting Pakistan’s limited over fortune.
Run out in the middle of the innings affected Pakistan’s strike rate that derailed their innings while either in the first innings or in the chase. Pakistan relegated to No 8 in the ICC ODI ranking because their players failed to rotate the strike midway through the innings. They lost the match when a big partnership was needed, but an unfortunate run out spoiled their party in most of the times.
In the first T20 against England when Pakistan was pouring fuel in their chase, a bizarre run out hurt their chase. Batsman Umar Akmal and Sohaib Maqsood were started to build a fifth wicket partnership. They added 32 in 21 balls. But they found themselves at the same end as Akmal called for a single and Maqsood declined. Umar crossed half of the crease Maqsood also went past half of the pitch. But, Maqsood decided to return to his own end. It looked like that both Umar and Maqsood were chasing one end to keep their wicket safe. This moment reflected the dressing room conditions of Pakistan.

It is one of the bizarre run outs Pakistan batsmen suffered midway through their innings. Pakistan also missed a few important catch as well. It has become a question that what is the problem with Pakistan players. Are they unfit? Or Just making the team suffer because players do not share a good personal rapport with each other? More than the players this issue has become a headache for coach Waqar Younis. He has to talk with his players about this otherwise they would have to face the worst in the nerve-wracking World T20 2016 in India.
However, Pakistan’s run out dismissal could be the worst among all cricket playing countries, but, the first Dubai T20 run out was not the worst in cricket, there was more bizarre run out than that Pakistan suffered.
In one of the match between Ireland and Scotland. Two Ireland batsmen also ended in the bowling end after failing to decide what to do as fielders also bemused. But, Scotland fielders got enough time to make one of them run out as both batsmen ended on the bowling end.
Anyone who thinks yesterday’s run-out was the best/worst in cricket has clearly never seen this. pic.twitter.com/6ZqVcCQvwg
