Shane Warne’s “Ball of the century”

Shane Warne bowled one of the finest deliveries ever witnessed in cricket which is fondly reminisced as the iconic “Ball of the Century”. The particular ball by the then 23-year-old Warne took the breath of all cricket fans away. Shane Warne was hereby coronated as the king of spin bowling.

Often referred to as “That Ball” or “Gatting Ball” is a cricket delivery by the Australian international Hall of Fame cricketer, Shane Keith Warne to former English cricketer, Mike Gatting,  a skillful and aggressive player of spin.

4th June 1993 marks the spectacular delivery of Shane’s first ball against England on the second day of his first Ashes test of the 1993 Ashes series, at Old Trafford in Manchester.

After a slow run-up, Warne delivered a leg break to Gatting. Due to Gatting’s wicket, England was left with 80 runs on 2 wickets, a position from which they could never recover. Since this incident Warne who was an inexperienced spinner is hailed as one of the outstanding bowlers in the history of Cricket.

Warne, who went on to redefine the art of spin bowling and become one of the greatest cricketers of all time, died of a suspected heart attack in Thailand on March 4, 2022.
