Dead ball because the bowler is dead?

Yeah, I think he should have been out there. No different to the ball popping up off a fielder and being caught by another.

I am praying the god, should not occur this kind of dead ball in ODI's...

Definitely out. Dead ball was the wrong call, but I'm sure the umpire thought he was doing the right thing.
