The second not only saw crackling batting from the sides but it also saw a hilarious moment that made many left in splits. After England put Pakistan into the bat, skipper Babar Azam took his team off to a great start.
After they lost two quick wickets, Haider Ali then came joined his skipper in the middle. He played a few good shots in his 18-run knock. But his one made many laugh. It was the 5th ball of the sixth over when England pacer Richard Gleeson bowled a short ball to him.
Haider tried to pull the ball and in a turn of events, it hit umpire Aleem Dar on the back thigh. The official was then seen rubbing his leg in pain. The video was uploaded by PCB on their official Twitter account with a captain ‘Ouch’.
Here’s the video:
