People loved the delivery from the Aussi left-arm pacer and called it the ball of the tournament.

Perfect Yorker to end stokes’ party

At the end of the 37th over, England all-rounder Ben Stokes looked all geared up and well settled between the wickets, spoiling the party of the Australian side. In came the swinging delivery of Mitchell Starc which was a perfect yorker kissing the bottom stumps leaving the English batsman clueless. Stokes batting at 89 was too late to put down his bat for the incoming 145 Kmph yorker ball.


ICC shared this video through twitter praising the left arm pacer for the wonderful delivery. Later this video went viral on the internet and gained a lot of appreciation from around the world and perhaps some called it the ball of the tournament.

Later Australia beat England by 64 runs becoming the first team to qualify for the World cup Semifinals. On the other hand, the host England has found themselves in a situation where their hopes of qualification remain unclear. This loss gave other teams such as Sri Lanka and Bangladesh hopes to qualify. England’s next challenge is India and New Zealand – the two unbeaten teams in the tournament so far – and will have to win both those matches to qualify.
