Amanda-Jade Wellington bowls women's version of Shane Warne's 'Ball of the Century' - Watch

Shane Warne's legspinner that bamboozled Mike Gatting in the first Test of 1993 Ashes is hailed as 'The Ball of the Century', and it seems the leg-spin legend's compatriot Amanda-Jade Wellington produced almost a similar delivery in her debut Test to dismiss England's Tammy Beaumont in the ongoing women's Ashes.

New Delhi: Shane Warne's legspinner that bamboozled Mike Gatting in the first Test of 1993 Ashes is hailed as 'The Ball of the Century', and it seems the leg-spin legend's compatriot Amanda-Jade Wellington produced almost a similar delivery in her debut Test to dismiss England's Tammy Beaumont in the ongoing women's Ashes.

Like Warne, Amanda pitched the ball outside leg-stump before spinning it viciously past Beaumont's bat to hit the off-stump. The video of the magic delivery was shared by the Twitter account of Australian women's cricket team.

The 20-year-old Amanda, who learned leg-spin bowling after getting inspired by her idol Warne, made her Australia debut last year in an ODI against South Africa.
