Dhoni Run Out Legal Delivery Controversy:

Best finisher in World Cricket MS Dhoni’s dismissal was the turning point of India vs New Zealand semi-final match in World Cup 2019. Dhoni got run out when he was about to change the gear with India needing 25 runs off the 10 deliveries at Old Trafford. Hardcore fans, however, blamed an umpiring error for his dismissal and questioned New Zealand’s field placement. MS Dhoni was at the crease with ample expectations from Indian fans. Dhoni had done such jobs many times before and he had plans to execute this one too. The 49th over was on with Lockie Ferguson bowling.

India fans shared videos and pictures of television screens just before that very ball on which Dhoni was dismissed. It showed that there were six New Zealand fielders outside the inner circle while only five fielders are allowed.


 

After India’s 18-run defeat in Manchester, fans shared videos and pictures, suggesting an umpiring error in the most crucial stage of the match. A debate was raised on the micro-blogging site regarding the legality of the ball on which MS Dhoni was out.

ICC Suspended Zimbabwe Cricket

ICC (International Cricket Council) on Thursday suspended Zimbabwe over a failure to keep the sport free from government interference, putting in doubt for their participation in qualifiers for the World T20.

ICC funding to Zimbabwe Cricket will be frozen and representative teams from the country will not be allowed to participate in any ICC events.

“The ICC has directed that the elected Zimbabwe Cricket Board be reinstated to the office within three months, and progress in this respect will be considered again at the October board meeting,” the ICC said in a statement.

“The ICC board heard from both the Sports and Recreation Committee representatives of the Zimbabwe government and Zimbabwe Cricket before making their decision.”

“We do not take the decision to suspend a member lightly but we must keep our sport free from political interference,” said ICC chairman Shashank Manohar.

“What has happened in Zimbabwe is a serious breach of the ICC constitution and we cannot allow it to continue unchecked.

“The ICC wants cricket to continue in Zimbabwe in accordance with the ICC constitution.”

The move puts Zimbabwe’s participation in October’s men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier in the doldrums.
