Eng vs Pak: It is not a mode of dismissal you witness every day. Veteran Shoaib Malik fell prey to an embarrassing dismissal during the 4th ODI. It happened in the 47th over of the match when Malik was looking to change gears and pick boundaries. He backed away, gave himself room to get the width. What he did next is bizarre, he hit the wickets with his bat attempting a cut shot. England players had a good laugh at it after they saw it on the giant screen. Malik’s 26-ball 41 blitz came to an end with that dismissal. His dismissal even got social media laughing as some fans asked, ‘Whose wicket it is?’
Here is how Twitter reacted.
Meanwhile, Pakistan lost the match by three wickets despite posting a mammoth 340 in their allotted 50 overs. Jason Roy (114 off 89 balls) and Ben Stokes (71* off 64 balls) starred as England won the game with three balls to spare.
