New Delhi: Former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne is arguably believed to have bowled the best ball ever by a spinner in Test history.
The legendary leggie's ball, fondly remembered as 'The Ball Of The Century', to Mike Gatting in 1993 Ashes Test, where the right-hander was bamboozled by a delivery, which pitched outside the leg-stump and went on to hit the top of his off-stump, is talked about till date.
As if that wasn't enough, Warne bowled another magical ball to Andrew Strauss later in his career.
This one, Warne once again pitched it way outside the off-stump and while Strauss looked to defend it with his pads, it spun all the way and knocked his leg-stump!
During the first Test against England in the ongoing series, Pakistan's Yasir Shah reminded the fans of Warne's ball to Strauss as he bowled exactly the same ball to Gary Ballance and it fetched him the same result as well.
Yasir, just like Warne, pitched the ball way outside the off-stump and Ballance didn't offer a shot as not in his wildest dreams would he have imagined the ball to turn massively and hit the stumps.
The commentators, the spectators were stunned with the delivery and the ball also triggered the debate as to who bowled a better delivery – Warne or Shah.
