Muppet-esque dismissals

Happened upon highlights of the NZ v Aus women's T20 international from yesterday. This run-out of Leigh Kasperek has to be up there as one of the most amateur ways to get oneself out at international level:

That link will take you straight to the replay of the runout, otherwise go to 21m 39s on this embedded vid below:

Ijaz smashing his bat onto his pad allowing a dead straight ball to go behind his pad and onto middle stump has to be up there.

Adam Parore leaves Caddick, ball swings away considerably and hits middle at 38:40
(If you can't bother skipping)

Michael Clarke has an outsized representation here. The Franklin and Kaneria ones are a whole new level of terrible.
Edit: Also Ian Bell and Paul Harris.

Disgraceful sportsmanship from Australia, the NZ batsman was clearly just going down to congratulate her teammate on a well taken quick single.

Curtly bowling one of the all time slowest slower balls to Healy then getting the giggles is always a good one.

the one that made me see red the most was Baz in the 2012 sri lanka tour (the captaincy saga tour) slogging herath straight to the man on the midwicket boundary in the last over before stumps with the nz openers trying to negotiate that tricky short period before the close.

it was unbelievably thick. i will never understand why he played that shot. it was the last over and it was rangana herath. just block it.

Much as he's a tool, my favourite Healy video is the ridiculous leg side stumping he took off Bevan in the 1997 Ashes series. Fmd he could keep wickets.

Glenn Maxwell must have half a dozen of these by now?

I remember Craig Keiswetter doing it in the 2010 World T20 final as well.

Ian Bell's dismissal 2nd innings of the 3rd Test vs Pakistan in 2012 deserves a shot, if only for the reaction it provoked here.

Ian Bell chipping one to Johnson at mid-on in the 2013/14 Ashes, and the Bairstow short mid-on catch from the same series are two of the more hilarious that come to mind.

Dhoni getting caught at Manchester 2nd innings against Moeen was pretty tragically bad.

Rad Haddin in Boxing Day 98 all out was a putrid shot as well. Think he might have had a terrible dismissal in the Cape Town collapse as well?
