During the 22nd match of the ongoing Mzansi Super League between Cape Town Blitz and Tshwane Spartans in cape town, Wahab Riaz bowled breathtaking yorker to Spartans’ all-rounder Roelof van der Merwe.
It all happened in the fourth ball of the ninth over of Tshwane Spartans innings. Meanwhile, they were need of another 23 runs off just 9 balls to win the match. It was one of the best ever yorker had in cricket history. However, Riaz overstepping on the same delivery meant that he had to re-bowl the delivery.
Now the visitors needed 22 runs off 9 balls, and a free-hit could have changed the course of the match. However, Wahab Riaz handles the pressure nicely and made sure that van der Merwe doesn’t dictate terms on the free-hit.
