List of unusual dismissals in international cricket

In cricket, a player is said to be dismissed when they lose their wicket. At this point, the batsman must discontinue batting and leave the field permanently. A batsman can be dismissed in a number of ways, the most common being bowled, caught, leg before wicket (LBW), stumped, run out and hit wicket. Much rarer are hit the ball twice, obstructing the field, retired out and timed out.[lower-alpha 1] These are regarded by analysts as unusual ways of dismissals in cricket, where the bowler is denied any credit.[lower-alpha 2][4][5] Handled the ball was a previously a separate method of dismissal, now encompassed into obstructing the field. As of September 2017, there have been twenty-two instances of players being dismissed unusually in international cricket: ten in Test cricket, nine in One Day Internationals (ODIs), one in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and two in Women's One Day International cricket.

In Tests, England batsman Leonard Hutton was the first player to be dismissed for obstructing the field, while playing against South Africa in August 1951.[6][lower-alpha 3] Between January 1957 and March 2001, six different players were dismissed for handling the ball, the most common form of an unusual dismissal.[7] Sri Lanka cricketers Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardene are the only Test players to be dismissed retired out, when playing against Bangladesh in 2001. Sri Lanka's captain, Sanath Jayasuriya, received strong criticism for the team's act.[8][9]

In ODIs, eight different players have been dismissed on nine occasions in unusual manner. The first such occasion was when India's Mohinder Amarnath was given out for handling the ball, against Australia in February 1986. The following year, Pakistan cricketer Rameez Raja became the first player to be given out for obstructing the field in ODIs. In 1989, Amarnath was dismissed in the same fashion, while playing in a match against Sri Lanka, thus becoming the first player to be dismissed in two different unusual methods.[6] Obstructing the field has been the most common method of an unusual dismissal in ODIs, happening in six of the nine occasions. Zimbabwe's Chamu Chibhabha is the most recent cricketer to be dismissed in an unusual way, when he was given out for handling the ball in a match against Afghanistan in October 2015.[10] The only instance of an unusual dismissal in T20Is occurred in June 2017, when England's Jason Roy was given out obstructing the field in a match against South Africa.[11]

In international Women's cricket, there have been two instances of unusual dismissals: the first came in an ODI match between Sri Lanka and the West Indies in April 2010.[12] Sri Lanka wicket-keeper Dilani Manodara was retired out due to her slow scoring rate in her team's first innings, having taken 70 minutes and 39 balls to score 8 runs.[13] The most recent instance of an unusual dismissal happened when West Indies' Thirush Kamini was given out for obstructing the field in a match against India.[14]
