  2. Storm Eunice forcing millions to take shelter as it disrupted flights, trains and ferries across Western Europe
  3. In cricket, one of the unluckiest ways to be dismissed is a runout. It usually is a result of miscommunication between the striker and non-striker and in some cases, a brilliant effort by a fielder can lead to a batter being run out. Over the years, we have seen several run-outs and while some of them have been spectacular some have been sheer comical. West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell, considered one of the most dangerous players in T20 cricket, became the latest entrant in the list of batsmen who have been part of bizarre run-outs. Azhar Ali is enjoying run out with Asad Shafiq and 9 others.#PAKvAUS #2ndTest pic.twitter.com/3kQZIXPYzn — M. Haseeb Qureshi (@iHaseebQureshi) October 19, 2018 Here, we will take a look at some of the most bizarre scenes on a cricket field that led to a batsman being run out: 1. Andre Rusell The West Indies all-rounder was involved in, what many are claiming to be, the most freakish run-out in the history of the game. Russell was representing the Minister Group Dhaka in Bangladesh Premier League, playing against Khulna Tigers. In the 15th over of the innings, Russell played the ball on the off-side and called his partner Mahmudullah for a single. Mahedi Hasan, stationed at short third man, threw the ball at the striker's end but Mahmudullah was safe. WHAT A BIZARRE RUN OUT! Watch the #BPL2022 match live on #FanCode https://t.co/wPDmICv8cM#BPLonFanCode pic.twitter.com/O43gKKfLSi — FanCode (@FanCode) January 21, 2022 However, the ball ricocheted off the stumps at the keeper's end and hit the other set of stumps at the non-striker's end, resulting in Russell's dismissal. The on-field umpire, much like others, was confused by the turn of events and sent the decision to the TV umpire who found Russell short of his crease and the batter was given out. 2. Azhar AliIf we are talking about weird dismissals, it would be criminal to not talk about a Pakistani batter. Pakistan’s Azhar Ali features in this list. You might have seen two batters stranded at the same end on many occasions but have you ever seen two players chatting in the middle of the pitch and getting run-out? That was the case with Azhar Ali during a Test against Australia in 2018. Ali had got a thick outside edge and he thought the ball had hit the boundary cushions and started to have a chat with his partner Asad Shafiq. However, the ball had stopped just before the boundary rope and Mitchell Starc was alert enough to send the ball to Tim Paine who whipped the bails off and sent Azhar Ali packing. After being run-out, Azhar Ali had a laugh about the whole incident and said his kids will have a laugh about it for years. 3. Adam ZampaAustralia leg-spinner Adam Zampa played a pivotal role in helping the Aussies lift the T20 World Cup trophy for the first time last year in the United Arab Emirates. Zampa, however, was involved in one of the most bizarre run-outs that was caught on camera and it is something he would not want to relive. Dwayne Bravo had smashed a full toss straight down the ground, the ball hit non-striker’s bat and went straight onto the nose of Zampa before going on to hit the stumps. The end result was a bleeding nose for the bowler and Peter Nevill’s long walk back to the pavilion. 4. Inzamam-ul-Haq Former Pakistan captain was a prolific run-scorer for his country and the whole cricketing fraternity were aware of his batting prowess. However, as good as a batter he was, his running between the wickets was more often than not was comical, to say the least. © Reuters The ex-Pakistan skipper was batting on 109 when he defended a ball straight back to Steve Harmison. The England pacer, in his follow-through, fielded the ball and threw the stumps down at the striker’s end. Inzamam’s momentum after playing the defensive shot had taken him out of the crease and after checking with the TV umpires, he was given out. 5. Alastair CookThe former England skipper was known to put a price on his wicket and once he used to get his eye in, he was a hard nut to crack. Cook was barely involved in run-out during his illustrious career. However, that was not the case when he was batting against India in Kolkata back in 2012. Kevin Pietersen had flicked a Zaheer Khan delivery straight to Virat Kohli at short square leg and Kohli, sensing a run-out opportunity, threw the ball at the non-striker’s end. Cook was outside his crease and took evasive action to avoid getting in the line of the throw, but the ball went crashing onto the stumps and the England skipper missed his double ton by 10 runs.

  7. The Indian cricket team lost the third Test against England at Leeds’ Headingley Carnegie cricket ground for the series to tie at 1-1 after their batsmen, with the exception of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli in the second innings, flopped and failed to put runs on the board. For the former captain of the Indian cricket team Sunil Gavaskar, arguably the biggest reason to worry during the third Test and arguably the remainder of the series is the fact that the majority of the Indian wickets which fell during the two innings were caught either by the wicket-keeper Jos Buttler or the players standing at the slips. View this post on Instagram While a common factor was the incredible swing provided by the Leeds’ conditions, it is also worth mentioning that the Men in Blue suffered with it a lot more than the hosting English side. Addressing this issue in the post-match conference of the match, Gavaskar said: "That would concern everybody (with Indian batsmen getting out in similar fashion) because despite the fact the lines that England bowlers bowled were outstanding lines, around the fourth and fifth stump which is difficult for the batsmen, but when the lengths were a little further up, they got the wickets. View this post on Instagram "When you bowl short of the length, every batsman has the time to play or leave it. Once the batsmen were drawn forward, there's not much you can do and that is where the bat speed factor comes in. "Most of the dismissals, if you have a look, it's at hard hands at the ball. You have to give credit to the bowler, it's a beautiful delivery. A lot of deliveries that got Virat Kohli out or Ajinkya Rahane out were good deliveries. Still, the batsmen went for it and that is where they got themselves out. That's definitely a cause for concern," explained the little master. View this post on Instagram With the score tied at 1-1, the series is anybody’s to win. With a few days to go before the fourth Test starts from September 02, 2021, Virat Kohli and Co. will be travelling to London’s Oval cricket ground and get themselves used to the pitch with the hopes of taking a 2-1 lead.

  8. Cyclone Tauktae is the latest in what experts say is a growing number of increasingly severe storms in the Arabian Sea as climate change warms its waters
  9. Tropical Cyclone Gita has already caused extensive flooding in Samoa before it slammed into Tonga NUKU´ALOFA, TONGA: Nuku´alofa awoke to scenes of devastation Tuesday after the most powerful cyclone ever recorded in the Tongan capital tore roofs off buildings, downed powerlines and caused extensive flooding, prompting a state of emergency in the tiny Pacific nation. Veteran disaster management officials were shocked at the fury of Severe Cyclone Gita as it unleashed 230 kmh (142 mph) winds on Tonga´s most populous island Tongatapu. Historic wooden buildings in the heart of Nuku´alofa, including parts of Tonga´s parliament, were reduced to matchsticks as the tempest hit overnight. Broken power poles and trees blocked the roads and sheets of corrugated iron stripped from homes littered the capital. "It was a particularly bad night," Graham Kenna, from the National Emergency Office, told Radio New Zealand. "I´ve been involved in disaster response for 30-plus years and it was the worst situation I´ve been in." Even the Tongan Meteorological Service lost its roof, forcing it to hand over the job of issuing warnings about the cyclone to its counterpart in Fiji. Storm damage closed the international airport, along with the Australian High Commission, which warned its citizens against travelling to the devastated kingdom. Yet officials said it could have been worse. The storm did not reach a top-of-the-scale Category Five as feared and there were no confirmed deaths as of mid-afternoon Tuesday. The howling winds cut power to Tongatapu on Monday evening and peaked in the early hours of Tuesday as fearful residents hunkered down. Police said more than 3,000 people were sheltering in 41 evacuation centres. The military helped clear roads at first light, allowing clean-up teams to fan out and assess the extent of the destruction. "Someone´s roof is in my front garden... some of the old landmark buildings that are 100 years old have been severely damaged by debris," Kenna said. In the midst of the storm, phone networks continued to operate and many of the 75,000 people on Tongatapu shared their experiences online. TVNZ´s Pacific correspondent Barbara Dreaver said the cyclone sounded like "a screaming freight train". "Hotel is shaking and can hear screech of metal flying past outside ... rain water coming in sideways to second floor room. Heart with those not in solid structure this is bad gita #tonga," she tweeted. ´Lengthy clean-up´ Lord Fusitu´a, a hereditary peer in Tonga´s parliament, wrote: "I can literally feel my room shaking to the foundations -- it´ll be a long night." As the cyclone moved out to sea early Tuesday, he said Nuku´alofa had experienced "a dose of miracle". "Astoundingly #TCGita seems to have subsided & we´ve avoided the worst of it," he wrote on Instagram. The storm had already created havoc when it slammed into Samoa on the weekend and authorities in Tonga declared a state of emergency before it hit. The aftermath of cyclone Gita is seen in Nuku'alofa, Tonga/Reuters While there was widespread flooding, Kenna said the impact of storm surges on the flat terrain of Tongatapu was also less than expected. "It was very fortunate that the worst of the cyclone came at a dead low tide, so it sort of worked in our favour," he said. The storm also passed just south of the capital rather than making a direct hit. But forecasters warned the threat from Gita was not over and it could still reach Category Five as it heads towards Fiji´s remote and sparsely populated Ono-i-Lau island group early Wednesday. Philip Duncan, chief forecaster at New Zealand´s Weather Watch service, said it could then brush Norfolk Island and New Caledonia before dissipating over New Zealand next week. New Zealand announced NZ$750,000 (US$544,000) in aid and deployed an air force plane to send supplies to Tonga. "Given the force of this cyclone, all signs point to a lengthy clean-up effort," Foreign Minister Winston Peters said. Cyclones are common in the Pacific at this time of year and Category Five systems have proved catastrophic when they make landfall. Cyclone Winston killed 44 people in Fiji in 2016, and Cyclone Pam claimed 11 lives and damaged 65,000 homes in Vanuatu in 2015.
  10. Heavy wind is seen along Ocean Drive in South Beach as Hurricane Irma arrives in south Florida, in Miami Beach, Florida, US, September 10, 2017. REUTERS/Carlos Barria FORT MYERS/MIAMI: Hurricane Irma lost some strength as it pounded southern Florida on Sunday afternoon, but forecasts warned it would remain a powerful storm as it flooded Miami streets and knocked out power to about 2 million homes and businesses. All of southern Florida was feeling the effects of the storm creeping towards the shore, with at least one man killed, a woman forced to deliver her own baby, apartment towers swaying in high winds, and trees uprooted. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the storm had maximum sustained winds of 195 kilometres per hour (120 mph), dropping it to a Category 3 ? the midpoint of the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale. Tampa and Hurricane Bays saw extraordinarily low tides, with sea life visible and boats grounded, though forecasters warned the storm would soon drive those waters back in with storm surges of up to 15 feet (4.6 m) along the state's western Gulf Coast. Small whitecapped waves could be seen in flooded streets between Miami office towers. Irma had been one of the most powerful hurricanes ever seen in the Atlantic, killing 28 people in the Caribbean and pummeling Cuba with 36-foot (11 metres) waves on Sunday. Its core was located about 30 miles (48 km) south of Naples by 2 PM ET (11 PM PST) and was expected to move along or over Florida's western coast through the afternoon and evening. Some 6.5 million people ? about a third of the state's population ? had been ordered to evacuate southern Florida. "This is a life-threatening situation," Governor Rick Scott told a press conference. Tornadoes were also spotted through the region. Irma is expected to cause billions of dollars in damage to the third-most-populous US state, a major tourism hub with an economy that generates about 5 percent of US gross domestic product (GDP). About 2 million Florida homes and businesses had lost power, according to Florida Power & Light and other utilities. The storm killed 24 as it raged through the Caribbean. It has already claimed at least one life in Florida, a man found dead in his pickup truck, which had crashed into a tree in high winds. Miami buildings sway, streets flooded The storm winds downed at least one construction crane and shook tall buildings in Miami, which was about 160 kilometres (100 miles) from Irma's core. Deme Lomas ? who owns Miami restaurant Niu Kitchen ? said he saw a crane torn apart by winds and dangling from the top of a building. "We feel the building swaying all the time," Lomas said in a phone interview from his 35th-floor apartment. "It's like being on a ship." Waves poured over a Miami seawall, flooding streets waist-deep in places around Brickell Avenue ? that runs a couple of blocks from the waterfront through the financial district and past consulates. High-rise apartment buildings were left standing like islands in the flood. One woman in Miami's Little Haiti neighbourhood delivered her own baby because emergency responders were not able to reach her, the city of Miami said on Twitter. The two are now at the hospital, it said. On Marco Island, right in Irma's path just south of Naples, 67-year-old Kathleen Turner and her husband were riding out the storm on the second floor of a friend's condominium after failing to find a flight out. She feared for her canal-facing home. "I'm feeling better than being in my house, but I'm worried about my home, about what's going to happen," Turner said. Irma comes just days after Hurricane Harvey dumped record-setting rain in Texas, causing unprecedented flooding, killing at least 60 people and an estimated $180 billion in property damage. Almost three months remain in the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs through November. US President Donald Trump spoke to the governors of Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee on Sunday and issued a disaster declaration for Puerto Rico, which was hit by the storm last week, the White House said.

According to the PMD, the weather system is going to affect the country's southern region until Friday after which the focus will shift to the northern region and will continue until Sunday. geo_embedgallery Power Outages: Over 100 Feeders Down In pictures: Heavy rain hits Karachi, disrupts life While early morning rain caused inconvenience to many, it also became a source of joy for some who arrived at the beach The K-Electric spokesman Fakhar Ahmed while speaking to Geo News said only 80 feeders of the power distribution company had tripped while 30-40 feeders had been shut down as precautionary measures due to urban flooding. He added that the power distribution company had a total of 1600 feeders. When asked about reports of power outages from across the city, Ahmed told Geo News that besides feeders tripping there were other issues as well that were causing power outages in areas, identifying local faults and PMT issues as the reasons.
  12. Waves triggered by Typhoon Hato are seen in Hong Kong, China August 23, 2017. Photo: Reuters HONG KONG: Typhoon Hato, a maximum category 10 storm, slammed into Hong Kong on Wednesday lashing the Asian financial hub with wind and rain that uprooted trees and forced most businesses to close, while in some places big waves flooded seaside streets. There were reports of 34 people injured in Hong Kong while in the city of Macau, across the Pearl River estuary, three people were killed, authorities there said. In Hong Kong, more than 450 flights were canceled, financial markets suspended and schools closed as Hato bore down, the first category 10 storm to hit the city since 2012. "I've never seen one like this," Garrett Quigley, a longtime resident of Lantau island to the west of the city, said of the storm. "Cars are half submerged and roads are impassable with flooding and huge trees down. It's crazy." Many skyscrapers in the heart of Hong Kong were empty and dark as office workers stayed at home. Hato churned up Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour and triggered large swells and big waves on some of the city's most popular beaches, with serious flooding in low-lying areas. In residential districts like Heng Fa Chuen on densely populated Hong Kong island, waves smashed against the sides of oceanfront buildings and surged over a promenade, swamping roads and vehicles parked nearby. Construction cranes swayed at the tops of skyscrapers, windows imploded and nearly 200 trees were uprooted, while some people used canoes to venture out into flooded streets. Authorities downgraded the storm to a category eight by mid-afternoon. A woman stands beside a big wave on a waterfront Typhoon Hato hitting in Hong Kong, China August 23, 2017. Photo: Reuters High seas The storm also caused a power blackout across most of the gambling hub of Macau for about two hours, residents said, with disruption to mobile phone and internet networks. The former Portuguese colony's casinos, however, had backup power, two casino executives told Reuters. The storm also made landfall in China's Guangdong province, in Zhuhai city adjacent to Macau, China's Xinhua state news agency. Numerous flights and trains were canceled in Guangdong province, with Shenzhen's International Airport particularly badly hit. Thousands of residents along the Chinese coast were evacuated and fishing vessels were called back to port. Maximum winds near Hato's centre were recorded at a destructive 155 kph (95 mph). A senior scientific officer for the Hong Kong observatory warned that sea levels could rise several meters in some places, with the government issuing flood alerts and opening 27 shelters across the city. Trading in Hong Kong's financial markets was halted for the day, the stock exchange said. Typhoon Nida in August last year was the last storm to close the exchange for the whole day. The city's flagship carrier, Cathay Pacific, and Hong Kong Airlines said the majority of their flights to and from Hong Kong between 2200 GMT Tuesday and 0900 GMT Wednesday would be canceled. Other transport services, including ferries to the gaming hub of Macau and outlying islands in Hong Kong, were suspended as well.
