Watch: Noor Ahmed mankads Huraira in U19 World Cup match


When it comes to ‘mankading’ it reminds us of the most-talked dismissal- ‘Ravi Ashwin makading Jos Buttler’ in the last edition of the Indian Premier League. Now, recently, during the fourth quarter-final of the ongoing edition of the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup match between Pakistan and Afghanistan in Benoni, Afghanistan spinner Noor Ahmad had mankaded Pakistan opening batsman Mohammad Huraira.

This dismissal sparked a debate over spirit of cricket. It took place on the fourth ball of the 28th over when Ahmad decided to mankad the non-striker Mohammad Huraira while delivering the ball to Pakistan all-rounder Qasim Akram.

With the bowler affecting the dismissal at the right time and with Mohammad Huraira clearly out of his crease, the on-field umpire ruled the batsman out.

Despite the type of dismissal being legitimate, cricket ecosystem fails to understand the mode of dismissal every time when it happens.

While opening the batting with Haider Ali (28), Huraira was the pick of the batsmen for Pakistan with 64 (76). His innings included a flurry of eight fours and a six during a 190-run chase. Thanks to a pivotal 63-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Akram (25) and Mohammad Haris (29) which steered Pakistan in sealing the run-chase in the 42nd over itself.

Earlier, Afghanistan captain Farhan Zakhil won the toss and chose to bat. However, Pakistani bowlers bundled out Afghanistan for 189 in 49.1 overs. With impressive bowling figures of 10-0-58-3, Pakistan seamer Mohammad Amir Khan was the best bowler for his team.
