Milton Shumba was left red-faced after a hilarious misfield resulted in his trousers falling down as Zimbabwe’s hopes of reaching the World Cup semi finals evaporated on Wednesday.
Shumba was called into action at Adelaide Oval when Max O’Dowd of the Netherlands struck a Luke Jongwe delivery through the onside, with the fielder waiting on the boundary to collect the ball.
However, the spinner misjudged the bounce of the ball, let it run past him and dived desperately to prevent a boundary.

However, as he leapt into the foam padding, his trousers fell from his waist hilariously
And as he leapt into the foam ‘Toblerone’ padding his trousers fell from his waist, exposing his boxer shorts and he quickly yanked his clothes up in a very embarrassing moment.
It was a day to forget for the Zimbabweans as their World Cup journey came to an end after a five-wicket defeat by the Netherlands in their Group 2 match.
Craig Ervine’s team fancied a top two place in the group after stunning former champions Pakistan but were virtually eliminated after slipping to fourth place behind South Africa, India and Bangladesh.
They were all out for 117 in 19.2 overs failing to vindicate Ervine’s decision to bat at Adelaide Oval.

For them, only Sikander Raza, who smashed three sixes in his belligerent 40, and Sean Williams (28) reached double digit in an otherwise sorry-looking scorecard.
Paul van Meekeren claimed 3-29 as the Dutch seamers dictated terms throughout the innings.
O’Dowd led Netherlands’ reply with 52 and Tom Cooper made 32 as the Dutch side, who have already crashed out, registered their first Super 12 win with two overs to spare.
