India Under 19 batsmen Dhruv Jorel and Atharva Ankolekar found themselves in a bizarre situation during the U19 World Cup Final against Bangladesh U19 at Potchefstroom on Sunday.
The incident took place in the 44th over, when the two Indian batsmen found themselves at the same end and wicketkeeper-batsman Jurel had to depart.
Jurel dropped the ball to cover-point and took off for a run, only to realise that non-striker Ankolekar was ball-watching and he did not respond. Both the batsmen found themselves at the non-striker’s end.

Shamim Hossain, who was at cover-point picked up the ball and lobbed the throw to the keeper, who took the bails off.
The umpires were confused about who had to depart and hence went upstairs. The third umpire who had the benefit of the replays took a closer look and gave Jurel out.
Here is the video:
