The ongoing Super Six clash of the U19 World Cup 2024 between England and Zimbabwe in Potchefstroom saw a controversial dismissal as middle-order batter Hamza Shaikh was given out for obstructing the field. In the video that has gone viral on social media, the batter could be seen casually handing the ball to the wicket keeper, who had appealed as he was likely going for the ball.

The incident occurred in the 17th over of the innings as Shaikh likely played a defensive shot as the ball ended in front of the stumps. With the right-hander handing the ball over to the keeper Ryan Kamwemba, he chose to appeal for the dismissal and the third umpire also ruled it out.

Theo Wylie (61) and Charlie Allison (76) made half-centuries, while Hayden Mustard and Sebastian Morgan also followed it up with critical contributions to take England to 237 in the allotted 50 overs.

Tazeem Chaudry Ali blows away Zimbabwe with his seven-wicket haul:

England left Zimbabwe reeling from the outset, claiming 3 powerplay wickets; however, it was Tazeem Chaudry Ali, who was the standout bowler with his leg break. The wrist-spinner finished with astonishing figures of 7.5-1-29-7 as Zimbawbe were bowled out for 91 in only 24.5 overs.

Charlie Barnard and Jaydn Denly also shared 3 wickets between them as England stay in contention for a semi-final spot.
