    Impressive that Ian Bell managed to get out in a Test between Australia and Pakistan.

    Doesn't really justify inclusion given it's Afridi but the fact he plays no shot at all is hilarious to me.

    England v Pakistan, 3rd Test, Karachi, December 2000 - YouTube

    Giles bowling Around the wicket from wide of the crease pitchs a good length ball pitching middle and leg

    Don't know if Afridi thought he was going to turn a mile and miss off, or not turn at all and miss leg.

    One strange dismissal I've seen was in Christchurch in 2006, Sri Lanka v NZ.
    Muralitharan, while pushing hard for a second run, inexplicably, decides to congratulate Sangakkara on his hundred, rather than completing the run.

    I remember watching that live.

    What I don't remember is, did the Lankans chuck up a stink and ask for Murali to be let back in like England did with Ian Bell at Trent Bridge vs. India?

    Think he left after a bit of confusion, but there was a fair bit of **** afterwards. The ball hadn't even reached the fielder when he left the crease iirc.

    McCullum did the same to Chris Mpofu in Zimbabwe a year previously and by doing so denied Shane Bond either a 5 or 10 wicket bag. NZ only won by a few hundred runs as I recall.

    I don't think they did at the time, but there was certainly a lot of controversy afterwards.

    Personally, I think there was fault on both sides.
    Murali wandering off down the pitch while the ball was still in the process of being fielded was crazy and asking for trouble.
    Taking the bails off and appealing for a run out when the batsman was obviously not trying to complete a run was not in the spirit of cricket.

    1st Test: New Zealand v Pakistan at Dunedin, Nov 24-28, 2009 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Peter Fulton in this match

    31.5*there was an inside edge and Fulton walks almost the full distance back to the pavilion and thinks of challenging it, too late I'm afraid, this is weird. Gul pitches it on middle and off and the ball skids through and hits him low on the pads, Doctrove raises the finger, Hot Spot showed a thin inside edge and Fulton always seemed in two minds as to what to do. Pakistan are lucky to get this wicket. Why didn't he go upstairs? Search me...*91/4
    What a moron while hes on 0
