WATCH: Shoaib Malik gets dismissed in bizarre fashion on his comeback innings for Pakistan

Former Pakistan skipper Shoaib Malik was dismissed in the most extraordinary fashion during the fourth ODI against England at Trent Bridge on Friday. Making a comeback into the playing XI after missing out on the first three ODIs, looked in solid touch till he made a horrendous mistake by getting hit-wicket to head back into the pavilion.

After Babar Azam’s sensational century (115) and half-centuries by Fakhar Zaman (57) and Mohammed Hafeez (59), veteran Malik decided to up the ante as he whacked the English bowlers around the park at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Malik smashed four boundaries in his quickfire knock of 41 off 26 but threw his wicket away as his bat hit the stumps after he attempted a late-cut off Mark Wood in the 47th over of the match.

It was a regular length delivery from the English speedster bowled outside off and Malik went deep inside his crease trying to steer it towards the point region. Malik however ended up going just a little bit too deep to his liking and smashing the ‘stumps’ out their groove instead of making any connection with the ball. It was an unfortunate end to an excellent innings from the veteran which came right when his team needed it the most.

Watch the video here:

Pakistan finished their inning on 340-7 in their 50 overs following a late cameo by skipper Sarfraz Ahmed (21 off 14). Tom Curran was the pick of the England bowlers, finishing with figures of 4 wickets while giving away just 75 runs in his 10 over quota. Mark Wood picked up a brace, whereas, Jofra Archer also chipped in with the solitary wicket of Asif Ali.
