Twitter reacts to Windies 'Mankading'

Cape Town - With Zimbabwe needing just three runs to win in the final over of their ICC Under-19 World Cup group stage clash against the West Indies in Chittagong on Tuesday, 17-year-old Keemo Paul decided to take matters into his own hands. 

Zimbabwe had just one wicket in hand as Paul ran up to deliver the first ball of the 50th over, only to run-out non-striker Richard Ngarava. 

Paul never had any intention of bowling the ball, and the successful "Mankad" ensured the West Indies' progression to the quarter-finals of the tournament. 

With Ngarava's bat on the line when the bails were dislodged, it was pretty obvious that he was not looking to steal any ground. 

But, rules are rules, and the third umpire had no choice but to declare Ngarava "OUT". 

That didn't stop the cricketing community from voicing their opinion on social media.
