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.
There were some voices of support for the mankading as well.
Why bring in a law that allows it and then say it’s not in the spirit. Isn’t it poor sportsmanship that he’s stealing a run? #WIvZIM

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….
