ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Zing bails create controversy on Twitter

A new controversy has raised regarding the use of zing bails as the Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne survived after the ball had a thick edge with the bails.

Karunaratne escaped from a dismissal

Sri Lanka have started their World Cup campaign by taking on New Zealand in Cardiff. After winning the toss New Zealand put Sri Lanka to bat first. Matt Henry was the star as Sri Lankan batsmen were troubled by him for single-digit scores.

But Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne had a lucky escape in the sixth over of the match. Trent Boult was the bowler and he bowled an inswinging short delivery into the Sri Lankan skipper. The left-handed batsman opted for a long cut shot and the ball chopped the bails.

Fortunately for the batsman, the bails didn’t come off and that denied the wicket of Lankan skipper. This has raised severe questions among fans as well as the experts since the incident is not new to the game. Even in the opening game also, Quinton de Kock survived such a kind of dismissal against Adil Rashid.
