Taking wickets in cricket is the most important aspect of winning a game. A team finds it really difficult to contain the opponent team if wickets are not taken at regular intervals. Bowlers work hard to keep their fitness intact so they can deliver fiery deliveries to trouble the batsmen. In the ongoing Bob Willis Trophy, Matt Fisher bowled one such delivery that rattled the stumps.
No delivery can match the effectiveness of a yorker. Be it ODIs or Test matches, a yorker is always effective. Many bowlers have skilled themselves in the art of bowling deadly yorkers at their will. Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga are modern greats who can bowl yorkers at any given situation. On Day 3 of the Bob Willis Trophy match between Yorkshire and Durham, Matt Fisher bowled a perfect yorker.
The perfect inswinging yorker by Matt Fisher
Durham was on 221/3 in their second innings with a 125-run-lead when Yorkshire captain called his main bowler Matt Fisher to get his side back on track. The man delivered in no time and removed centurion Alex Lees in the 91st over. However, it was his delivery three overs later that has got people talking.
What a yorker this was from Matt Fisher in the Bob Willis Trophy earlier today 👌#BobWillisTrophy

The new batsman Jack Burnham was facing Fisher as he bowled a monstrous, destructive yorker that swung all the way from sixth-stump to the batsman’s leg-stump. Burnham was not at all prepared to face such delivery and fell down on the ground as the ball almost hit his toes. To add salt to injury, the batsman witnessed two of the stumps flying away, doing a cartwheel.
It is a dream come true for any fast bowler to take a wicket in such passion. The delivery by Matt Fisher is certainly a contender for the best moment of the 2020 Bob Willis Trophy.
