We bring you the video of Ben Stokes being given out obstructing the field. Watch the video and decide if the decision was correct or not. 

In the 2nd ODI match between Australia and England,  English all rounder Ben Stokes has been given out for obstructing the ball. After Stokes hit the bat straight to the bowler Mitchell Starc, the bowler tried to aim at the stumps. Stokes, tried to protect himself and in the process ended up touching the ball which prevented the ball from hitting the stumps.

 

 

 

Australian players appealed and the onfield umpire referred it to the third umpire, who gave his decision a OUT. But, it is quite clearly evident that Stokes was just trying to prevent the ball from hitting him. This incident did bring a lot of criticism to Australian players and several did defend them. Ben Stokes became the first Non-Asian player to be given out for obstructing the ball.
