"excuse me old chap, do you mind if I run you out?"

We didn't lose. The "if it didn't happen in Australia it didn't happen" rule applies.

PENK wrote:It's bizarre, although not entirely unexpected given Pakistan's reputation for incompetence between the wickets. I think it was pretty unsportsmanlike of Australia given that they could see the batsmen thought the ball was dead.

I don't think Pakistan will be too bothered, though, given that they are about to complete a thumping victory in the match!

This reminds me of the Bell dismissal against India in 2012 although a lot funnier.
He got recalled at the time by Dhoni and the commentators were praising him, but Bell was a complete twat and the crowd played no little part in putting pressure on Dhoni to do the 'sportsmanlike' thing. Thankfully we were spared of that this time.

Always good to see the Aussies get mullered. Doesn't matter who by.
We're usually skipping around the function room in our long-johns by now...
