After Azhar Ali‚Äôs comical run out on Day 2 of the 2nd Test against Australia grabbed the limelight, another video of a bizarre run out video left Twitterati in splits. The incident took place during a Plunket Shield match between Wellington and Otago, in Wellington, New Zealand between allrounder Nathan Smith and Michael Rippon.
In the 47th over of the match, Rippon flicked a ball towards fine leg and was on the way for a routine double. But after completing the first run, as he turned to go back to the striker‚Äôs end, he slipped twice. Looking at his partner, a confused Smith tried to stop from taking the double and return back to his crease. But just as he was about to do so, he too slipped in the middle of the pitch.
Wellington wicketkeeper Lachie Johns received the ball from his fielder and was quick to take down the bails while both batsmen tried to lift themselves from the ground.
