Mishra second to be dismissed obstructing field

NOT ALLOWED: Delhi Captials' Amit Mishra obstructs the field as SRH pacer Khaleel Ahmed attempts a hit at the stumps.

Spinner Amit Mishra became only the second cricketer in the history of IPL to be declared out for obstructing the field after he blocked Khaleel Ahmed' stump view towards the end of the Eliminator between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

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. The third umpire first checked for a caught behind possibility before ruling Mishra out for obstructing the field.

Delhi won the tense game by two wickets to set up a date with Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2 here on Friday.

Before this, Yusuf Pathan was given out for obstructing the field in a match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Pune Warriors in 2013.
