In the second quarter-final of the ongoing ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in Benoni, New Zealand players – Jesse Tashkoff and Joseph Field – earned accolades for their generous act of helping injured West Indies batsman Kirk McKenzie.

Having previously retired hurt, McKenzie returned to the crease and was dismissed for 99 before being taken off the field by the opposition.

Talking about the match, the young Black Caps managed to stun West Indies despite reeling at 153/8 chasing 239. However, there was a stunning twist to the tale as the ongoing tournament witnessed another surge from the tail-enders. Number 9 Joey Field and No. 10 Kristian Clarke joined hands to take New Zealand into the semi-finals with just two balls left in the game. Clarke, apart from scoring an unbeaten 46, had also bagged an impressive 4/25 with the ball.
