In a truly unusual incident during the Abu Dhabi T10 League, former India pacer Abhimanyu Mithun left fans bewildered when he bowled a huge no ball. It took place in the 14th match of the tournament where Mithun overstepped while bowling, but the significant distance between his foot and the crease astonished everyone. This episode took place during the clash between Chennai Braves and the Northern Warriors. After this incident, images and videos of Mithun’s peculiar no-ball went viral on social media, sparking speculation about any potential irregularities.

Overstepping is quite common in cricket, but what was bewildering was the extent to which Mithun’s foot went over the crease.

Chennai Braves were set a target of 107 runs and successfully achieved it in 9.4 overs. Sikandar Raza played an excellent knock as the match-winner for Chennai, contributing 27 runs off just 10 balls. Apart from Raza, Asalanka (22 off 16) and Stephen Eskinazi (22 off 13) made impactful contributions.
