Michael Vaughan slams Mushfiqur Rahim With A Sarcastic Statement For Obstructing The Field In The Test Match Against New Zealand

In a striking turn of events, former England skipper Michael Vaughan took to his official Twitter handle responding in a cheeky way to Bangladeshi cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim‘s getting dismissed during the Test match against New Zealand. On Wednesday, Rahim was dismissed for going against the rules and “obstructing the field”, as he used his glove to push the ball away while defending his off stump. 

The second day of the Test match between Bangladesh and New Zealand saw the Kiwis bowling out the Bengal Tigers for 172.However, despite been bowled out for this mark, spinner Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam went on a magnificent showdown with their deliveries dismantling New Zealand’s batting line up, with 55 for 5 before the intervention of bad light. Team Bangladesh finished efficiently ahead of New Zealand. Now, it will be interesting to see will the Kiwis be able to make a potential comeback. 

Vaughan’s sarcastic dig at Rahim

Just after the incident, Michael Vaughan took to his official Twitter handle and wittingly roasted the Bangladeshi cricketer while stating “Welcome to the very exclusive Handled ball club Mushfiqur.. only proper players are members.” Vaughan himself was dismissed for this reason back in 2001 whereas Rahim’s dismissal was the first time when a Bangladeshi cricketer was dismissed for this obstructive reason. 

MCC Laws

According to the MCC law, a player is out obstructing the field if, while receiving a ball from the bowler, they intentionally hit the ball with a hand not holding the bat. This rule applies whether it’s the first or a subsequent hit. Obstructing the field includes both playing at the ball and hitting it more than once to defend their wicket.
