Ranchi: India's Yusuf Pathan became the first batsman in the Twenty20 history, and sixth overall, to be ruled out for obstructing the field.

Test cricket has seen only one batsman, Briton Len Hutton, getting out in that fashion while four players so far have been ruled out in the ODIs, the latest being Pakistan's Mohammed Hafeez against South Africa early this year.

Pakistan's Rameez Raja (1987) and Inzamam ul haq (2006) along with India's Mohinder Amarnath (1989) are the other three batsmen who were out in similar fashion in ODIs.
