IPL 2019 Eliminator, DC vs SRH: Amit Mishra given out obstructing the field, joins unwanted list
Amit Mishra became the second batsman in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) to be given out obstructing the field after Yusuf Pathan. The incident took place during the Eliminator between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday.
With two runs needed from four balls in the final over, Mishra tried to take a cheeky single off the third ball of the over but he ended up running in front of the stumps and Khaleel Ahmed’s throw hit him on his arm. The Sunrisers Hyderabad fielders were convinced that Mishra was obstructing the field and he was given out by the third umpire.

However, Delhi Capitals were able to hold their nerves as they clinched the encounter by two wickets.
Chasing a target of 163, Delhi Capitals, who had lost the way after a blazing start, were brought to cusp of victory by young Pant, who smashed 49 off 21 balls with five sixes as West Indies’ Paul finished it off the penultimate ball of the innings with a boundary off Khaleel Ahmed.
