In the second Test between BAN and NZ, Bangladesh rebounded from their disappointing ODI World Cup performance, securing a thrilling victory over New Zealand in a World Test Championship match.

Bangladesh’s win in the first Test propelled them beyond India to the second spot in the WTC points table. However, New Zealand showcased a strong comeback in the second Test, attracting attention on social media due to the manner of Bangladesh batsman Mushfiqur Rahim’s dismissal – a rare occurrence in Test cricket, unseen since 1951.

During the ongoing match at Mirpur, Bangladesh struggled as six batsmen returned with only 123 runs on the board. Among them, Mahmudul Hasan Joy (14), Zakir Hasan (8), captain Najmul Shanto (9), and Monimul Haq (5) fell to the Kiwi bowlers.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Shahadat Hossain fought for a while, but Mushfiqur’s dismissal was notable due to his attempt to block the ball with his hand after initially playing it with the bat.

His actions fell under the rule of fielding obstruction, resulting in his dismissal.

While handling the ball, Mushfiqur’s move was deemed obstructing the field, making him the first Bangladeshi and only the second batsman in history to be dismissed in such a manner.

The previous instance dates back to 1951 when England’s Leonard Hutton faced a similar fate against South Africa at the Oval.
