16-year-old Afghan bowler adopted Ashwin's maneuver against Pakistan, again sparked debate
In the Under 19 World Cup, as soon as Afghan bowler Noor Ahmad bowled Mankaded out of the Pakistan batsman, the spirit of the game and its rules once again sparked debate.
The Under 19 World Cup has got its four semifinalist teams this season. India, India, Pakistan, New Zealand and Bangladesh are the four teams that are just steps away from the title. Pakistan defeated Afghanistan in the quarter-finals and entered the semi-finals. Although the Afghan team was doing everything possible to stop Pakistan, it failed. The Afghan team, batting first, scored 189 runs and tried to save their target. In this effort, the Afghan bowler 16-year-old Noor Ahmad adopted the tricks of India's experienced bowler R Ashwin.
In fact, Pakistan batsman Muhammad Huraira was running in the form of Shanadanar and he was causing trouble for the Afghan team. Whom broke Noor Ahmed and dismissed Huraira, playing for 64 runs. However, after this, Chinaman Noor also got involved in a lot of controversies.
Huraira had gone out before throwing the ball. This case happened in the 28th over, when the Pakistan team lost their two wickets soon. Veteran Rohel Nazir and Fahad Munir had returned to the pavilion and Mohammed Huraira had started the innings and remained at the crease. However, he was run out by Mankanding. The umpire asked the bowler to discuss before sending the appeal forward. However, it was clear in the replays that Huraira had gone out of the crease before the bowler had bowled the ball, and as per the rules of the game, it is a valid out.
Earlier in the IPL, R Ashwin also had Mankaded out to Jos Buttler, after which a different debate on sportsmanship was sparked. Noor Ahmed also faced a lot of sharp comments on social media. Earlier, the Afghan team had a chance to put pressure on Pakistan by scoring big, but the team was able to score only 189 runs in 49.1 overs. Ibrahim Zadran and Farhan Jakhil had started well by adding 41 runs in less than seven overs, but after the break of this partnership, the Pakistani attack became a puzzle for the rest of the batsmen. This mankanding of Noor Ahmad (Noor Ahmad) has once again sparked debate on this and people have started questioning the rules of the game on social media.
