Pakistan’s pacer Mohammad Amir’s funny run-out has even defeated legend Inzamam-ul-Haq in fun quotient. The retired Pakistan legend Inzamam might have scored tons of runs in all the formats of cricket and against all the sides, but he is notorious for his running between the wickets. Many of these run-outs resulted in the causality of his batting partner. The 23 run-outs you just saw are not as funny as Mohammad Amir’s recent run-out. The entire cricket world is laughing at Mohammad Amir’s antics.
Amir was batting in the Third Test match of the series against West Indies in Sharjah. It so happened that Amir hit Devendra Bishoo. He thought that the ball would clear the field towards long-on. He was admiring his batting prowess. His partner was on the other side of the crease and was strolling on the pitch, thinking they were in safe heaven and the ball had crossed the boundary line. But West Indies fielder in the deep, Roston Chase, would cut short their leisure walk.
Chase threw the ball towards the bowler. While his partner Wahab Riaz had no clue what had transpired, Mohammad Amir started running towards the bowler to save his life. But, he couldn’t run fast enough as Bishoo removed the bails before Amir could reach home safely. Many cricketers shared the video as it was so funny.
With this funny run-out, Amir may be contesting for the top slot of the list of cricketers who made a fool out of them in front of all the cricketers. His senior and Pakistan’s national selector Inzamam may have the most funny dismissals, but if we go by the quality of it, Amir rules.

Inzamam has the dubious distinction of being run-out the most number of times than any batsman in ODIs.
