Yasir Shah bowling was declared to be close to Shane Warne’s bowling. The sight of Sri Lankan batsman Koshal Mendes being bowled by Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah reminded me of Shane Warne’s ball of the century. On the third day of the first Test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Galle, Sri Lankan batsman Kaushal Mendes was playing on 76 runs. Meanwhile, Yasir Shah bowled a leg-spin ball to Kaushal. Yasir’s delivery falls outside the leg stump and comes in quickly.
Yasir Shah bowling was declared to be close to Shane Warne’s bowling.
Kaushal tried to play the ball by going on the back step but could not get in the line of the ball and was bowled. This ball brought back memories of the 1993 Ashes Test series between Australia and England at Old Trafford. Shane Warne clean bowled England player Mike Gatting in this match. This ball was declared the ball of the century. The ICC has appreciated Yasir Shah’s bowling and declared it close to Shane Warne’s bowling. Sri Lankan cricket also praised Yasir Shah’s bowling.
Ball of the century nomination please!
