Ball of the tournament ?

Recommended Posts

Starc getting off stump of Stokes at Lords is equal contender. If you watch carefully there are few things that happened. Immediately after release, It looked boll will go 7th-8th stump. But because it was thrown in 90 mph range, Ball does a late swing. Stokes bat comes down at edge of popping crease by the time ball has gone well beyond Stokes bat and about to hit the off stump.

 

So Stokes was deceived in line, betaen by pace, done by late swing. He stood no chance

As skillful as Kuldeep's delivery to Babar was, the adrenaline rush you get to watch a searing yorker bowl a set batsman is absolutely on another level.

 

Bumrah bowled a couple of similar yorkers with the new ball for LBWs in practice matches. Hoping to see him replicate this in in real matches now

I'm not sure you can bring the minnow angle here, Eng have been minnows in WC since 92 & outchoking SA since 79, heck if you stretch the fabric of time a bit further & include tests - they've been at it since 1877 :hatsoff:

But England is #1 ODI team currently which they weren't before.

  • Starc to Stokes was an unplayable ball that changed the game 
  • Honorable mention: Pandya to Malik, which drained Pak's hopes and maybe also ended Malik's ODI career
