21st century ball of the century.

in hindsight given what it heralded, bumrah's ball to smith down here that just tickled his leg bail is pretty watershed

Context is the important factor. For Warne, it's very easy for the 20th, there's just no comparison.

Johnson to Faf 2014 - Best ball I've ever personally seen. After how Faf single handedly denied Australia in 2012 it was the most delicious and perfect reply and made him look like a precious moron in the firing line of Hades himself. Can't find a video but anyone who saw knows it.

Harris's ball a close second. But more of insult to injury in the inevitable. Endlessly replayable though.

Yeah it was because of the crack, doesn’t need to land directly on it
I honestly don't think it was because of the crack. It lands on the seam, it stays presented upright and swings away to clip the top of off. It's just a nuts delivery.
