Best Answer

In any form of cricket, the first example of a dismissal by Obstructing the Field was recorded on August 27, 1792, in a game between Sheffield Cricket Club and Bents Green. The game is notable as the first match to have been fully recorded to have taken place in Yorkshire.

The only man to be given this mode of dismissal in Test cricket is Len Hutton, while in One Day Internationals, Pakistan's Rameez Raja and India's Mohinder Armanath have also been given this dismissal.

The most recent batsman to have been given this method of being out is Inzamam-ul-Haq, who, when defending a ball from hitting the wicket off the throw of Suresh Raina, put his bat out to block the stumps at the striker's end.
