Azhar Ali hilariously hit a rolling ball during a County Championship Division Two match between Worcestershire and Sussex. The game that ended in a draw caught attention for Ali’s action. However, the Pakistan batter was quick to aplogise after his act. During the second innings of Worcestershire, Azhar was batting at the score of 91 when Sussex pacer Henry Crocombe got the ball slipped away from his hand right before he could have delivered it. The ball then went rolling outside the pitch, however, Azhar reached to the delivery and hit it for a four.
Umpire was quick to inform Azhar that it was a dead ball and the batter apologised for his act after that.
