Mushfiqur out for obstructing the field

Wicketkeeper batter Mushfiqur Rahim became the first Bangladeshi to lose his wicket for obstructing the field in Test cricket in the post-lunch session of Day one of the second Test against New Zealand in Dhaka on Wednesday.

The incident occurred in the 41st over of the innings. Mushfiqur, batting on 35, defended a delivery from pacer Kyle Jamieson and then as the ball was going wide of the wickets he swatted it with his right hand even though it was not heading towards the wickets.

The dismissal, which was earlier called 'handling the ball', was brought under the umbrella of obstructing the field by the MCC in 2017.

He becomes the eighth cricketer in Tests to get out in this way.
