Yesterday, Mitchell Starc castled a well-set Ben Stokes with the perfect delivery. Batting on 89, nothing much had troubled Stokes until that particular delivery.
But the last ball of the 37th over Stark bowled was a reverse swinging yorker at 145 km/hr and Stokes was just too late to put his bat down. That yorker was so good that even God would have had to do extremely well to stop it.
Watch it yourself.

Twitter also went nuts after watching Starc bowl that beauty!
The ball that we’ll remember from the 2019 World Cup years down the line…when Australia reach yet another semifinal in 2051. #Starcpic.twitter.com/8Zey5GKhOn— Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) June 25, 2019

What a sound… I think this is the Ball of the tournament, I jumped up from my seat when I saw this and required the over break to compose myself. What a match, what a ball, simply unplayable.#cwc19 #ENGvAUS #yorker#ballofthetournament https://t.co/1GEHEOj0Qt— Sanjay Ravikumar (@srk2694) June 26, 2019
