West Indies speedster Sheldon Cottrell on Saturday (July 28) bowled a delivery that could very well be termed as the worst ball of all time in the history of cricket.
Cottrell was opening the bowling against Bangladesh in the third ODI at Warner Park in St Kitts when he unleashed this bizarre delivery. The ball landed at second slip on the full and left everyone astounded. Ashley Nurse had to take a few steps to his right to catch the ball.
Subsequently, the left-arm pacer apologised to his teammates before awkwardly returning to the bowling crease.

Sheldon Cottrell gave away 59 runs in his 9 overs and took the wicket of Sabbir Rahman later in the innings. Riding on Tamim Iqbal’s century (103), Bangladesh posted a highly competitive total of 301 on the board.
Chasing the target, Chris Gayle scored 73 runs off 66 balls while Rovman Powell made a blistering 41-ball 74. However, their effort went in vain as West Indies lost the third ODI by 18 runs and thus conceded the series 2-1.
