The night watchman has a bit of a chat with his skipper but not for long. Is sent back. Plumb in front.advertisementThe feat comes after Yasir was run out incomical fashion during their second innings on Thursday. The 32-year-old drew the ire of his captain and non-striker, Sarfraz Ahmed, who was losing partners at some pace.During the third session of the third day, Sarfraz flicked New Zealand spinner Will Somerville to the leg-side and decided to pinch a tricky second. Yasir was on course to make it safely to the non-striker’s end but was well short in the end as he lost his shoe mid pitch.(With inputs from AP)Also Read | Pakistan’s Yasir Shah run out after his shoe comes off in Test vs New ZealandAlso Read | Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali’s comical run out against AustraliaAlso watch –last_img read more
