When West Indies' Keemo Paul effected a mankad to claim the last Zimbabwe Under-19 wicket

it divided cricketing opinion.

Many current and former players took to Twitter to condemn the act.


Eoin Morgan ✔  @Eoin16

Disgraceful behaviour in the U19CWC. WI's should be embarrassed!!


Stephen Fleming    @SPFleming7

Right or wrong, just a sad way to end a good game especially with so much on the line

#winatallcosts????

Amazed that the spirit of the game never comes up when batsmen hit the ball and stay on

but does  when a bowler mankads a batsman....

The negligence has to stop at some point. The law is the law.

Why should young cricketers feel bad for following the law ?

I said this in the Under-19 thread, while I would have preferred to have seen the last over play itself out, it was within the rules, so if you want to get upset with anyone, you should be upset with the MCC. While I would have never done this myself, if it is not considered within the spirit of the game, then remove it from the laws, simple as that. It is a bit of a shame that the brilliance of this match will best be remembered for the way it ended.

West Indies Under-19 entered the quarter-final of the World Cup in controversial and tense circumstances,

as Keemo Paul effected a mankad to claim the last Zimbabwe Under-19 wicket - that of Richard Ngarava -

with three runs needed off the final over.

Kemo  ran through the bowling crease without entering his delivery stride and broke the stumps,

catching the non-striker Ngarava with his bat on the line

while he was standing a couple of steps out of his crease.

The video for those that didn't see it:



The World Cricket Committee reviewed the law in 2014 and deemed that nothing needed to be changed.

“The unanimous view of the committee was that if the non-striker is out of his ground earlier than allowed in either the Laws of Cricket or the International Playing Conditions, then he can have no complaints should he be dismissed in this manner.

“Furthermore, the committee believes it was not against the Spirit of Cricket to uphold such an appeal, and urges batsmen to ensure they do not try to gain an unfair advantage by moving out of their crease before the appropriate time,” it added.

The Zimbabwe coach Stephen Mangongo :

"I have debriefed the boys in the dressing room and they were all crying,

We have explained that technically the run-out is legal.

We left it to the last man and we should not have done that.

It was a hard lesson and they have learnt it the hard way."

Such is life, ketch  :P I do find it interesting that there is a divide even among batsman and bowlers. Some bowlers think it is cheating, some batsman think that as it is within the laws of the game, it is perfectly legitimate.

All that being said, those that have gone on Twitter to hurl abuse should be ashamed of themselves. I know that Ian Bishop was the target of a fair amount of harsh words.
