Server serves a legal serve but in the process loses his bat which goes flying out of his hand.
Receiver fails to return serve and claims distraction as a result of flying bat.
If it causes your opponent to be distracted the umpire will call a let. It wouldn't be fair to let the point go on.
You would find in most situations the players would stop the point anyway and the server would allow a let to be played.
It is covered in the rules on a Let.
