Embarrassing run-out sums up Pakistan's humiliation

Pakistan were bowled out for a record-low total in their ODI clash with New Zealand, and this embarrassing mishap summed it up perfectly.

The tourists crashed on Saturday to 74 all out, with man-of-the-match Trent Boult taking 5-17 to give his side a 183-run win and a 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

RECORD HUMILIATION: New Zealand destroy Pakistan in third ODI

It was Pakistan's lowest total against New Zealand and the hosts' winning margin eclipsed the previous best of 138 runs when the two sides met in 2001 in Christchurch.

Pakistan's reply started terribly when Boult took three wickets for four runs in his first five-over spell.

They were 3-2 and the match was effectively over, and their humiliation was complete when Babar Azam was run-out in pretty comical fashion.

Babar was unlucky when he tried to slide his bat completing a second run, but the bat dug into the ground short of the crease.

He was left trying to stretch with his hand towards the crease as he was caught short of his ground.

At one stage, Pakistan were in danger of beating Zimbabwe's world-record low score of 35 but they were eight down when that milestone was avoided.

No.11 batsman Rumman Raees top-scored for Pakistan with 16 before he became Boult's fifth and final victim.

The win is New Zealand's 10th from 11 ODIs, Tests and Twenty20s at home this summer, with one T20 match against the West Indies washed out.
