On the opening day of the second Test match between Bangladesh and New Zealand, Bangladeshi player Mushfiqur Rahim was disqualified for ‘handling the ball’.
Mushfiqur Rahim, a cricket player from Bangladesh, was dismissed for the first time on Wednesday during the opening day of the second Test match against New Zealand. The wicket-keeper batsman, who was dismissed for handling the ball during an over from Kyle Jamieson of New Zealand, was used to using his hands when standing around the stumps. Rahim was ejected in this manner, making him the first Bangladeshi player to do so in history. He became one of the few cricket players to be removed in this fashion, joining the likes of Mohinder Amarnath, Mohsin Khan, Michael Vaughan, and others.
In international cricket, only few players have been removed from the game for handling the ball. Rahim was the eleventh player to be sent back to the locker room for making a hand gesture while a delivery was still alive.
Out Handled the ball: (a) If a batter intentionally touches the ball during play with a hand or hands other than the bat, without the fielder’s permission, he is considered to have out handled the ball. (b) In accordance with this law, a batsman is out if, during play, he returns the ball to a fielder using a hand or hands other than those holding the bat without the fielder’s permission.
Not out: Despite the preceding clause (a), a batsman who grips the ball to prevent harm is not out under this law.
Furthermore, it should be mentioned that the bowler is not given credit for the dismissal.
