Something happened recently again due to which the cricketer Alex Ross become the first player in BBL history to be given “obstructing the field” out.

It was a match between Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes on 10th Jan. Tymal Mills from the Hobart side was bowling the 17th over. As he delivered a short ball the Brisbane Heat batsman Alex Ross played a pull to deep midwicket. He successfully completed the first run but while scoring the 2nd run things went haywire and as he tried to make the ground he crossed the pitch and this was wrongly judged as obstructing the field by the on-field umpires.

For those who don’t know, obstructing the field is a situation when the batsman deliberately comes in the path of the throw to save himself from runout.
