Indian fast bowler Abhimanyu Mithun made headlines due to an unusually large no-ball during the Abu Dhabi T10 league. This infamous no-ball occurred in a match between the Northern Warriors and the Chennai Braves. Abhimanyu Mithun overstepped only once during his two-over spell but the substantial distance between his foot and the crease surprised observers. This incident quickly went viral on social media, sparking speculation and discussions about the unusual nature of Mithun’s no-ball. Some netizens even compared the incident to Mohammad Amir's.

The incident occurred in the 5th over of the chase. Mithun claimed a wicket by dismissing Bhanuka Rajapaksa with his second delivery. However, the pacer missed the chance to take another wicket, Charith Asalanka, in the following delivery due to a significant no-ball.

Despite the early no-ball incident, Mithun concluded with impressive figures of 2/11 in his 2 overs, contributing to the Northern Warriors' overall performance. Interestingly, the Northern Warriors conceded 21 extras during the match.
