Yasir Shah Ball Videos of the Century: A delivery from Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah took Sri Lanka’s top-order batsman Kusal Mendis by surprise on the third day of the first Test on Monday. This ball of Yasir Shah is being called ‘Ball of the Century’. At the same time, many are comparing it to the delivery of Australian spin wizard Shane Warne to Mike Gatting at Old Trafford in 1993. Warne is no more in the world.
While Warne’s ‘Ball of the Century’ was bowled in the 20th century, Pakistan’s 36-year-old veteran spinner Yasir Shah has done something similar in the 21st century with his amazing leg-spin delivery. Shah clean bowled right-handed batsman Kusal Mendis on the score of 76 runs.

Like Shane Warne’s delivery in Manchester 29 years ago, Yasir Shah’s delivery pitched outside the leg-stump and then turned sharply and blew Mendis off-stump.
According to the ICC, commentators immediately started comparing Shah’s ball with Warne’s ball that dismissed Gatting. Though Warne’s scintillating delivery was a rare one in itself, Yasir has certainly come close to it.
Sri Lanka took a 341-run lead against Pakistan on the fourth day of the opening Test in Galle. The hosts are batting at 337/9 in the second innings, with Dinesh Chandimal unbeaten on 94.
