Jason Roy is first player in T20I to be given out for obstructing field
England opener Jason Roy has become the first cricketer to be given out for obstructing the field in T20 international history. South Africa defeated England by 3 runs in the second T20I at Taunton to level the three-match series 1-1. Whole story started when Livingstone, who was on strike with Roy at the other end, declined a quick single after hitting the ball towards point. Phehlukwayo had a shy at the non striker's end and the ball hit Roy on his boot. The South Africans appealed immediately for obstructing the field. The umpires first called it a dead ball and then decided to go upstairs. The replays showed that Roy did change his path and came in way of the throw. The third umpire had a long hard look at the replays and in the end gave the decision in South Africa's favour.
