Visakhapatnam, May 9: Delhi Capitals' Amit Mishra became only the second cricketer in the history of IPL to be declared out for obstructing the field after he blocked Sunrisers Hyderabad's Khaleel Ahmed's stump view during the Eliminator in Vizag on Wednesday (May 8).
Mishra was adjudged out for obstructing the field in the final over of the innings with Delhi needing two runs off three balls. He appeared to change the direction while running for a quick single and pacer Ahmed picked up the ball, turned around to aim for the stumps but only to hit the batsman's back.
Sunrisers immediately appealed and third umpire eventually ruled Mishra out. Delhi won the tense game by two wickets to set up a date with Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2 in Vizag on Friday (May 10).
Before Wednesday night's incident, Yusuf Pathan was given out for obstructing the field in a match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Pune Warriors in 2013.
