The leg-spinner, after missing the fourth ball bowled by Khaleel Ahmed, started running for a single. However, realising that he would not be able to finish the run, changed his direction mid-way. <p></p> <p></p>That prompted Ahmed to collect the keeper's throw and hit it at the non-striker's end. The throw, however, struck Mishra's right arm. <p></p> <p></p>The SRH fielders started to appeal straightaway and umpires went for a review. There was some confusion over the review as well, with umpires initially signalling not out after having checked that Mishra had not edged the ball to the keeper. <p></p> <p></p>However, Mishra's run was later reviewed and he was found to have intentionally blocked the throw with his body. <p></p> <p></p>The wicket, however, couldn't stop Delhi from winning their first IPL knockout game as Keemo Paul hit Ahmed for a boundary on the penultimate ball to help his team cross the line. <p></p> <p></p>This was the second instance in IPL that a batsman was given run out for obstructing the field. In 2013, Yusuf Pathan was given out for Kolkata Knight Riders against Pune Warriors in a similar instance.
