Bangladesh Batter Mushfiqur Rahim Uses Hand To Stop Ball
Handling the ball refers to a batsman deliberately handling the ball without permission from the fielding side. In Rahim’s case, he intervened with the ball’s path using his hands while it wasn’t dead or out of play, resulting in his dismissal. Such dismissals often grab attention because they’re so uncommon. It’s not just about the legality but the rarity of seeing a batsman getting out that way. Even though it’s part of the rules, it’s not something witnessed frequently in cricket matches, making it stand out when it does occur.
