During the eighth match of the ongoing Mzansi Super League Nelson Mandela Bay Giants’s pacer, Junior Dala bowled a beautiful yorker to dismiss Chris Gayle. Meanwhile, Bay Giants’s have beaten up Jozi Stars in the match at Johannesburg.
When Chris Gayle was dismissed he was at the score of 6 off 11 balls. It all happened in the fourth over of the innings when Gayle had no answer to an unplayable delivery from 29-year old Dala. The stumps flying in the air was the icing on the cake for the Giants’ fast bowler. It was one of the best yorkers ever had in cricket history.
Jozi Stars’ batsman could manage to score only 108 in 18.5 overs as they have bundled out in the last ball of the 19th over. Stars captain Temba Bavuma was the only player to score 25+, he scored 27 off 31 balls. 27 runs from the captain include two boundaries. The video of the yorker is getting viral over the internet. Here we are sharing the video of the incident.

Full. Straight. Bowled! Fantastic comeback from Dala after being hit for a big six by Gayle.
