WATCH: Adil Rashid produces an incredible no look run out to end Babar Azam’s stay at the crease

It was a brilliant piece of work from England spinner Adil Rashid on the field to run out Babar Azam during the fifth and final ODI against Pakistan at Headingly on Sunday. It was a wayward throw from England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler to start with as the Pakistan batsmen were looking to steal a quick single. The brilliance of Adil Rashid however ensured that there was no way back for Babar Azam who was caught a long way out of his crease at the non striker’s end after being sent back by his partner Sarfraz Ahmed at the other end.

It was a tossed up delivery from Rashid bowled at Sarfraz’s pads who was looking to tuck it into the leg side for a single. The ball however missed the bat and rolled off the pads onto the on side. Babar Azam however was a long way down the track looking for the single and was rightly sent back by the Pakistan skipper. Wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, who was alert as ever, got to the ball pretty fast, turned around and fired a rocket throw towards the bowler’s end. It wasn’t the greatest of throws by any means but Rashid did extremely well to collect the ball and throw it onto the stumps behind him without even looking.

Watch the video here:

England got the wicket they needed so desperately with the well set Babar Azam having to make his way back to the pavilion after scoring 80 off 83 balls. Babar’s wicket turned out to be the turning point of the match as the visitors kept losing wickets at regular intervals despite skipper Sarfraz Ahmed holding fort at one end. Sarfraz eventually departed for a well made 97 and despite Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain all getting starts, Pakistan never really looked like getting close to the target of 352 and were eventually bundled out for 297 in 46.5 overs.
