Kusal Mendis, a Sri Lankan hitter, was dismissed with one of the finest deliveries ever produced by Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah.
In the opening test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the home team currently holds a 200-point advantage. Mendis was continuing to play well for Pakistan, so they needed a wicket. Yasir produced a delivery that most likely no other batter could have handled.
Mendis was squared up as he attempted to defend it in order to push the off stump back when the length ball slipped in, pitched outside leg, and spun rapidly away.
Ball of the century nomination please!

Many online users compared Mike Gatting’s 1994 century ball to the late Shane Warne’s.
It should be highlighted that Yasir is returning to the Test team; he got three wickets in the second innings after taking two in the first.
