Yusuf Pathan 

There are only 5 batsmen who have been dismissed for obstructing the field in the history of Twenty20 cricket. India’s Yusuf Pathan was given out for trying to intentionally block a throw from a fielder, which would have otherwise maximised his chances of getting out, while representing Kolkata Knight Riders in an Indian Premier League against the now defunct Pune Warriors in 2013.
