Knowing how and when to bowl a Yorker is an art. Not every bowler can execute it perfectly, which is why the likes of Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, and Umar Gul were brilliant with the ball.
In modern cricket, a bowler features a little or no margin for error and thus he must have many tricks up his sleeves.
One such weapon is that I rate the Yorker and people who can bowl it with perfection among the simplest.
Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg has picked the 5 most lethal bowlers of Yorkers among the present bowlers. Among these, the Aussie has named Pakistani fast bowler, Haris Rauf.
Others included within the list are Indian pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, Sri Lankan legend, Lasith Malinga, England fast bowler, Chris Jordan and Aussie quick, Mitchell Starc.
He said this in response to an issue during a Q&A session on Twitter earlier today.
Haris Rauf displayed an incredible amount of talent while playing for Melbourne Stars within the Big Bash League earlier this year.
He was among the leading wicket-takers of the tournament, despite playing a few matches. They also named the fiery pacer was also within the BBL team of the tournament.
His impressive performance within the BBL earned him a maiden call-up for the national team, and he represented Pakistan within the T20Is against Bangladesh. However, he couldn’t continue his purple patch within the inconclusive PSL 2020.
