India Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara was given out for handling the ball on the opening day of Derbyshire’s English County Championship match against Leicestershire on Tuesday. Pujara became the first player to be given out handled the ball in England since 1996, when Karl Krikken was dismissed while playing for Derbyshire against India on the same ground.

The 26-year-old right-hander, the International Cricket Council’s Emerging Player of the Year in 2013, scored 6 before he was dismissed in the 20th over, leaving hosts Derbyshire on 62-3.

With this, Pujara is the first Indian to get out handling the ball in Handling the ball. Handled the ball is a rare method of dismissal and has accounted for only seven batsmen in the history of Test cricket. Mohinder Amarnath was the first Indian to get out Handling the Ball in an ODI against Australia at Melbourne.
