Over the years, cricket has been observed to be unfairly tilting in the favour of batsmen but the yorker still remains the most effective and lethal delivery. The surgical precision required to dart in a perfect requires special skill and only a few bowlers have mastered the art of routinely finding the blockhole.
From the days of the legendary bowlers of yesteryears to the T20 specialists of today, former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra recently unveiled his picks for the top 6 pacers who excelled in delivering yorkers.
Chopra’s distinguishing list features the presence of the iconic Pakistan duo of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, both of whom consistently wreaked havoc on oppositions throughout their respective careers. The player deemed by Chopra as the best yorker-specialist is Sri Lankan great Lasith Malinga.
