There have been many instances where both batters have found themselves stranded at one end due to a miscommunication while running between the wickets with one of them eventually being declared run out. This incident happened once again during the first One Day International between Australia Women and Pakistan Women at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane on Monday, January 16.
This time it was a confusion between two Pakistani batters Kainat Imtiaz and Nida Dar that resulted in an unfortunate run out which left both batters in total disbelief as the duo was seen staring at each other.
On the third delivery of the 31st over, both Kainat and Dar were involved in an awkward mix-up while taking a risky run which saw them stranded at the same crease. It was Nida’s call as she was adamant on taking a single after having hit a delivery to the off side. She immediately sprinted from her crease with the aim of completing a run.
However, her batting partner Imtiaz was completely disinterested, and in the end, decided to half-heartedly go for the run before coming back to the non-strikers’ end. Unfortunately, it was too late for Nida Dar who had already reached the other end and even the commentators reckoned that it was Dar who should be adjudged out.
The umpires then got the dismissal reviewed and the third umpire passed the verdict against Kainat Imtiaz who walked back for a painstaking two runs off 15 deliveries to her name.
Watch the dismissal here:
Australia defeat Pakistan by 8 wickets
Meanwhile, Nida Dar top-scored for the Women in Green with 59, but with no support from the other end, the Pakistanis were restricted to 160/8. The Aussies successfully chased down the target without breaking a sweat by eight wickets in the 29th over.
Even though the hosts lost opener Beth Mooney early, skipper Meg Lanning (67) and Phobe Litchfield (78*) ensured that the Pakistani bowlers did not have much reasons to celebrate.
