#4  Pakistan vs Australia (ICC Cricket World Cup 2015)

misbah-ul-haq

The stage was set for a perfect quarter-final clash between big guns Pakistan and mighty hosts ‘Australia’ at the upgraded Adelaide Oval. Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first, but lost two wickets in quick succession with only 24 runs on the board.

In the second ball faced by captain Misbah-ul-Haq off Josh Hazlewood’s delivery, he was tricked and the ball went round his body and touched the leg-stump. The LED stumps and bails were shining brightly but the bails weren’t uprooted. The Australian’s restricted the Asians to a mere 213 run which was chased down easily.  

A similar situation occurred during the group stage match between Ireland and UAE, where Arab bowler Amjad Javed’s delivery had a faint touch at the sticks and the LED bails lit up, but Irish batsman William Porterfield was lucky to escape as the bails were stagnant.
