- Pakistani bowler Yasir Shah bowled a wonderful ball
- Fans remembered Shane Warne’s Ball of the Century
Something historic happened in the first Test match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Galle. Pakistani spinner Yasir Shah clean bowled Sri Lanka’s Kusal Mendis in the second innings. This ball turned so much that it is being called the ball of the century. However, cricket fans and veterans have different opinions on this.
Whenever the name of Ball of the Century comes, Shane Warne’s face comes first. The magic that the late Shane Warne created with his wrist is always remembered. The ball of the century of the 20th century was thrown by Shane Warne, which came in 1993.
Such was Shane Warne’s ball of the century
In the year 1993, the match between England and Australia was going on. Shane Warne bowled a ball to England’s superstar player Mike Gatting, which probably came in front of the seventh-eighth stump and went straight into the stump. Mike Gatting kept watching and Shane Warne did a miracle.
