Mushfiqur Rahim’s Unusual Dismissal, Michael Vaughan Reminisces and Welcomes Him to the Club

Published on

Former England captain, Michael Vaughan, playfully remarked on Mushfiqur Rahim’s unusual dismissal during the second Test against New Zealand.

Rahim, charged with “obstructing the field,” evoked memories for Vaughan, who humorously welcomed him to the exclusive “Handled Ball Club.” Vaughan recalled his own similar incident in 2001, adding a touch of sarcasm to the situation.

In the recent match, Rahim, in an attempt to defend, unintentionally touched the ball with his hand, leading to an appeal by New Zealand players. The third umpire confirmed the “obstructing the field” decision, making Rahim only the latest addition to the rare list of players with such dismissals in Test cricket.

The incident unfolded on the opening day, where Bangladesh struggled to score 171 runs in their first innings. New Zealand faced a similar challenge, losing five wickets at just 55 runs. Rahim’s dismissal added a unique twist to the game, leaving cricket enthusiasts amused and Vaughan providing his witty take on the situation.
