WATCH- Kuwaiti bowler’s ‘ball of 21st century’ bamboozles batter with exaggerating spin; Tabraiz Shamsi reacts

The clip was from a match in Kuwait's KCC T20 Challengers Cup 2024.

Screengrab That's so village X handleSpinners are known to make batters look awkward with their skills of spinning the ball. Sometimes the dismissal of the batter leaves an indelible mark on spectators. One such example was seen in a match between Kuwait Nationals and SBS CC in the KCC T20 Challengers Cup 2024.

In the clip, the bowler can be seen floating a delivery that takes a highly looping trajectory before pitching well outside off stump. The batter keeps following it and shapes up for an almighty slog leg side but the ball takes a sharp turn after pitching and hits the top of the middle and leg stump.

The batter is left standing well outside the off-stump and then walks off dejected. The clip has since gone viral with users mocking the batter and stating that the bowler is chucking. Many fans noted that the bowler's run-up seems to start the way India's Harbhajan Singh's did and also had a bit of Sri Lanka great Muttiah Muralitharan in it as well.

Here is the video:

The clip was also noticed by South Africa’s left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi. He cheekily tagged fellow spinner Keshav Maharaj in a post on X and said that they should work on this delivery.

We've gotta work on this ball next @keshavmaharaj16,” Shamsi posted.
