IPL 2019 – WATCH: Amit Mishra given out for obstructing the field during DC vs SRH Eliminator

Delhi Capitals’ Amit Mishra was given out obstructing the field during the IPL 2019 Eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday.

The incident occurred in the final over of Delhi’s innings- with two runs needed from three balls, Mishra missed to connect his willow on a full-length delivery from Khaleel Ahmed and then tried to take a quick single off the fourth ball.

SRH wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha returned the ball to fast bowler Khaleel. Meanwhile, Mishra ended up running in front of the stumps and Khaleel’s throw at the stumps hit the batsman’s arm. The Sunrisers fielders were convinced that Mishra was obstructing the field and he was given out by the third umpire.

Mishra has became the second batsman in the history of the IPL to be given out obstructing the field. Yusuf Pathan, earlier playing for Kolkata Knight Riders, was given out for obstructing the field in a match against Pune Warriors India in Ranchi back in IPL 2013.

Here’s the video:

Mishra’s dismissal did not matter much in the end as Keemo Paul hit a boundary off the next ball to give DC a 2-wicket win over SRH.

The Shreyas Iyer & Co. will now compete against MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in the second Qualifier on Friday for a place in the final.
