In the first ODI between Pakistan and Ireland, Shoaib Malik while fielding on the leg side boundary faced a pretty hilarious situation. Hasan bowled a bit short of length ball which was hammered towards the leg side.
Now Shoaib ran after the ball but it beat him in the race and hit the fence before being stopped by the boundary line small hoardings. Now when Malik went to pick up the ball there was a spectator who was already down to reach the ball.
Now this fan was trying his best to somehow hand on top of the hoarding and pick up the ball. Malik was standing right next to up and watching his efforts. He, at one moment, had to hold the fan so that he does not fall in front of him.
Finally, the fan picked up the ball and handed over to Malik who tapped his back on doing a pretty tough job. This whole situation was pretty hilarious. Malik enjoyed it and so does the commentators. Pakistan beat Ireland in that game comprehensively. As the second game was washed out by heavy rainfall, Pakistan won the two-match series 1-0. This was the maiden ODI series between Ireland and Pakistan in Ireland and Pakistan was able to get the cup.
