Amit Mishra’s funny run-out in IPL 2014 and other hilarious run-outs in cricket

Amit Mishra has been tormenting batsmen with his leg-breaks and googlies, but little did we expect that he can be equally entertaining with his running skills. Abhijit Banare makes a compilation of some funny run-outs in cricket.

Since you arrived on this page, either you were too eager to watch the Amit Mishra dismissal for the nth time or you thought that there are some more funny run-outs which you can catch up with. Most of the below videos are only a compilation.

1) Hafeez-Kamran refuse to run to the danger end!

This is from the 2011 World Cup. Mohammad Hafeez sweeps and calls for a single and turns it down. Kamran Akmal is no mood to watch around and both are at the striker’s end. What’s funny? Sangakkara collects the throw and hurls it wildly at the non-striker’s end and it sails over the bowler Muttiah Muralitharan. But none of the two batsmen even attempt to return!

2) Inzamam-ul-Haq 1999 World Cup: It was a humungous task to go through the videos and find the funniest of all available funny run-outs of Inzamam. This is the 1999 World Cup match against Australia where Inzamam gets hit by a yorker, and is down on the ground, while Wasim Akram runs towards the strikers end. The bowler ran all the way, picked it, came back and effected the run-out.

3) Amit Mishra — absolute lazy running

Here’s a Video uploaded by Freddie Wilde capturing the Amit Mishra run-out. Amit Mishra certainly can’t run for his life!

4) Samit Patel: Watch it over and over again, it won’t stop amusing you. Samit Patel slips and slip badly. The comical background music only adds more fun to the ideo.

5) Misbah-ul-Haq-Sohaib Maqsood run-out in Asia Cup 2014: Pakistan in recent years seems to have developed a strong bond with running themselves out. Sohaib Maqsood called for the single, slipped and ran back with Misbah towards the striker’s end! Afghanistan wciketkeeper Mohammad Shahzad, collected the ball and ran till the non-striker’s end jumping in joy to run Misbah out.

6) Run-out without an umpire

Interesting! In this 2006 ODI series, an athletic Suresh Raina looks to run out Brian Lara. He looks towards square-leg and appeals only to see his teammate standing there Billy Doctrove is at the boundary sorting out sight screen issues!

7) Anil Kumble on a running spree with Sachin Tendulkar and survives!!!

In the end the scoreboard showed two additional runs but Alan Wilkins couldn’t resist but repeat the word ’circus’. This is one of those moments Sachin Tendulkar wouldn’t ever like to see. Meanwhile, Anil Kumble will be happy to see his fine presence of mind and running between the wickets. He has covered a distance of three and half runs! Four minutes it took for the third umpire to decide. Go ahead and watch this, completely worth it.

6) George Bailey run-out trying to check if his partner was safe

It was a fabulous series for skipper George Bailey, scoring runs at will on the flat decks in India. It was the last match of the seven-match ODI series in October 2013. Bailey pulled the ball to deep midwicket where the fielder ran and threw the ball. Since the throw was at the non-striker’s end and Bailey was running towards the striker’s end, he was running backwards checking whether his partner was safe. Vinay Kumar showed great alacrity in throwing towards the other end and Bailey couldn’t believe his blunder.

7) Virender Sehwag lazy run out

As lazy as you can get. Virender Sehwag, not as much interested in running compared to hitting boundaries casually walks towards the non-striker’s end. The keeper threw it towards the stumps and Sehwag was on his way back.

8) Sadgoppan Ramesh run out by Greg Blewett in 1999-2000

The title of the video aptly reads longest throw for a run out . Sadgoppan Ramesh attempting the fourth run is run-out by a direct throw from Greg Blewett.

9) Kieron Pollard bizarre deflection

Well this isn’t funny but certainly bizarre. There have been many run-outs with the ball richocheting off the bowler’s hand and the non-striker being dismissed. But this shot from Chris Lynn was hammered towards long on, Pollard fielded and the ball deflected sharply passing under Pollard’s legs and Ben Cutting was caught off guard.

10) Muttiah Muralitharan run-out trying to congratulate Kumar Sangakkara

In this 2006 Test at Christchurch, Kumar Sangakkara picked a single and strolled towards the non-striker’s end raising his arms celebrating his ton. In the meanwhile, his partner Muttiah Muralitharan was absolutely careless walking back to congratulate Sangakkara while the ball was in play. Brendon McCullum dislodged the bails.
