Watch: Mankading In U-19 World Cup Between Afghanistan And Pakistan

Despite the incident, Pakistan beat Afghanistan by six wickets in the ICC U-19 World Cup on Friday

Afghanistan bowler Noor Ahmad Lakanwal created controversy in the ongoing U19 World Cup when he ‘Mankaded’ Pakistan opening batsman Mohammad Huraira in the quarter-final clash on Friday.

It all happened in the 28th over of Pakistan’s innings when Noor Ahmad removed the bails at the non-striker’s end with Hurraira (batting on 64 from 76 balls) casually walking down the track.

With the bowler appealing loudly, on-field umpires decided to send it upstairs for a final call. Going by the laws of the game, the third-umpire adjudged the batsman run-out.

The dismissal of running out a backing-up batsman is known as a ‘Mankad’ after former India bowler Vinoo Mankad ran out Australia’s Bill Brown in 1947.

England’s Jos Buttler was a victim of Mankading by India’s Ravichandran Ashwin in the 2019 Indian Premier League.

Meanwhile, it was Huraira’s half-century on debut and a fine bowling performance which powered Pakistan to a six-wicket win over Afghanistan in the ICC U-19 World Cup here on Friday, setting up an exciting semifinal against arch-rivals India.

Afghanistan fought hard after posting 189 but just did not have enough runs on the board. Huraira, playing his first game of the tournament, struck a match-winning knock in the fourth quarterfinal.

“The wicket was good and our batsmen did not take responsibility. They bowled well and created the chances. 190 was a par score for our bowlers. We expected our fast bowlers to provide early wickets and they were not able to do that,” said Zakhil. (With PTI inputs)
