Pakistan haven’t managed to emerge as a brilliant fielding unit over the years and often find themselves in the middle of major gaffes that leave them red-faced. A similar incident unfolded on Friday (December 8) during the ongoing tour game between the Shan Masood-led side and Prime Minister’s XI and Pakistan found themselves at the receiving end yet again.
The comedy of errors unfolded on the fifth delivery of the 78th over of the Prime Minister’s XI’s innings. Matt Renshaw drove an overpitched delivery from Abrar Ahmed between covers and mid-off and scampered for three runs before former Pakistan skipper Babar Azam collected the throw from the deep and aimed at the stumps on the striker’s end.
However, the Pakistan wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed and captain Shan Masood failed to collect the misfired aim and it trickled away to the fence. The aimless overthrow cost Pakistan four extra runs and helped Renshaw collect seven runs off just one legitimate delivery.
