Dhaka, Dec. 6 (AFP) - Bangladesh's Mushfiqur Rahim became only the second batsman in Test history dismissed for obstructing the field in Wednesday's second match against New Zealand in Dhaka.

New Zealand appealed against Mushfiqur, who was found to have pushed the ball away with his gloves while defending against Kyle Jamieson in the 41st over.

Television umpire Ahsan Raza declared Mushfiqur out for 35 after the on-field umpires asked for a check.

England's Leonard Hutton was the only other batsman to be dismissed for obstructing the field in Test cricket during a match against South Africa at the Oval in 1951.

Seven other Test cricketers have been dismissed for having handled the ball, a similarly unusual dismissal integrated into "obstructing the field" dismissals when the laws governing cricket were rewritten in 2017.

    Bangaladeshi should not complain.They started it all with that ridiculous appeal which dismissed Matthews .In this case there is precedent has happened before

    Retribution has come faster than expected. It would have been better if it was Shakib for what he did to Angelo.

    How quickly justice has been served. This game is a great leveler.

    Cricket is losing its glamour and respect. Might as well scrap the test version and play only the more entertaining T20s and 50over matches with less rules dependent on TV umpires/

    Remember the dismissal of Angello at the World Cup?!!
