Zaib-un-Nisa Mankads Shakila Niyomuhoza: The first edition of the Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup is being played in South Africa. The match was played between the team of Pakistan and Rwanda on Sunday.
Pakistan and Rwanda clashed in the group stage of the Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup on Sunday. Pakistan won against Rwanda by 8 wickets. Rwanda scored 106/8 and in reply Pakistan achieved the target by losing 2 wickets. The case of ‘Mankading’ i.e. runout at the non-striker’s end also came to the fore in the match. Let us tell you that for the first time the Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup is being organized.
Pakistani bowler did ‘Mankading’
Pakistani bowler Jaib-un-Nissa ‘Mankading’ Rwandan player Shakeela Nyomuhoja in the 20th over. As soon as Nysa ran to bowl the fourth ball of the over, Niyomuhoja standing at the non-striker’s end left the crease and went ahead. In such a situation, taking advantage of the opportunity, Nysa scattered the bails, after which the umpire immediately raised his finger for out. Niyomuhoja could not open her account. This is the first case of ‘Mankading’ in the tournament.
Mankading is now legal
Significantly, some time ago there was a lot of discussion about the runout at the non-striker’s end. Many former cricketers termed ‘Mankading’ as against the spirit of the game. However, according to the rules, it is now legal to run out a non-striker. According to ICC Rule 41.16.1, if a player comes out of the crease at the non-striker’s end before the bowler has bowled, the bowler has the right to run the player out.
