Bowling perfect yorkers is just like a dream of every fast bowler and it is impossible without hours of practice at regular intervals. But there are some players who have defined the term ‘yorker’ in their own way. We brought to you list of those 4 top class fast bowlers who will be known for their perfect yorkers forever:
When it comes to perfection in yorkers, Waqar Younis would be the first name that strikes our mind. He was, no doubt, the finest human being for bowling yorkers at any stage of the match. His magical fast bowling was like a deadly spell for almost every batsman who played against him. Waqar was the main weapon of his team who did the heroics in lots of matches during 1990’s and early 2000s.
Chasing 4 or 5 runs off the last over are easily gettable these days. But, if Wasim Akram would have been here, the batsman would be under pressure. His reverse swinging yorkers was one of the tough tasks for the batsmen those days. He, alongside Waqar Younis, was the best pair to kill any batsman’s attitude on field. Even Sachin Tendulkar is a big fan of Wasim Akram’s fast bowling.
We all have observed number of times in the past that Lasith Malinga is the present king of yorkers. His unconventional bowling action and variations in the speed is can disturb any inform batsman also. He is one of those bowlers who have full control over his yorker lines. The Sri Lankan speed star might be in the last few years of his career but his unique style of bowling with accurate yorkers will always be remembered.
Speed, line and length are three major factors in pace bowling & Shane Bond is just known to deliver all of these. In his short career span of 8 years, he achieved a big fame all over the world because of his fast bowling. He was a death specialist bowler who could continuously bowl yorkers. Though he is no more a part of NZ team yet he will be remembered as one of the best fast bowlers in the world till date.
