The Eliminator between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday grabbed more than the usual eyeballs after Amit Mishra was adjudged out for obstructing the field. The only player to get dismissed in such fashion after Yusuf Pathan in IPL.
The crucial match came down to the last over with Delhi Capitals needing two runs to win off three balls with Mishra on strike.
On the fourth delivery of Khaleel Ahmed's over, Mishra went for the big one which he missed. Then, he took off for a single and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha aimed at the stumps. He missed it as well.
Khaleel then collected the ball and took an aim at the non-striker's end. Mishra changed his track while running and the throw hit him on the arm, in front of the stumps.
Initially given not out by field umpire S Ravi, the decision went upstairs and Mishra was adjudged out for obstructing the field.
Witnessing the comedy of errors on the field, IPL fans on Twitter used the opportunity to meme the incident at the expense of Amit Mishra.
