Dane Schadendorf affects magnificent stumping: The Zimbabwean wicket-keeper’s stumping effort has amazed one and all.
During the third place play-off match of the recently concluded Quadrangular Under-19 Series between Zimbabwe and New Zealand in Durban, Zimbabwe wicket-keeper Dane Schedendorf’s stumping effort to dismiss New Zealand batsman Beckham Wheeler-Greenall is gaining him applauds from the cricketing fraternity across the globe.
It all happened on the fourth delivery of the 36th over when Wheeler-Greenal’s attempt of stepping out against Zimbabwe spinner Tadawanashe Nyangani saw him missing the ball altogether.
With the ball going way down the leg-side, Schedendorf moved to his left to collect the ball. Not being able to watch the stumps due to the momentum, Schedendorf back-flipped the ball on to the stumps. Having hit the stumps directly without watching even them, Schedendorf put on display a jaw-dropping effort.
After New Zealand captain Jesse Tashkoff won the toss and chose to bat, New Zealand were bundled out for 198 in 49 overs. Coming in to bat at No. 5 in the 16th over, Tashkoff top-scored for his team with 39 (59) with the help of three fours.
With bowling figures of 10-0-23-4, Zimbabwe all-rounder Milton Shumba was the pick of their bowlers. Apart from the left-arm spinner, Wesley Madhevere and Priviledge Chesa also picked three and two two wickets respectively.
It was Shumba who scored 50 (86) to lay a foundation for a Zimbabwean victory who sealed the chase in the last over of a tense chase.
