Former captain Tamim Iqbal criticized Mushfiqur Rahim after he was dismissed in a bizzare way during the second Test match against New Zealand.

Tamim who debuted in the commbox opined that it was unexpected for Mushfiqur to make the mistake as he became the first Bangladeshi to lose his wicket for obstructing the field in Test cricket.

The incident occurred during the 41st over of the innings when Mushfiqur was batting on 35, defended a delivery from pacer Kyle Jamieson and then as the ball was going wide of the wickets he swatted it with his right hand even though it was not heading towards the wickets.

"A cricketer who has played over 80 Tests, should know he can't do that," Tamim stated in the commentary box.

The dismissal was earlier called 'handling the ball', was brought under the umbrella of obstructing the field by the MCC in 2017.
