The fast bowler from Pakistan, Hasan Ali bowled a perfect yorker to bring down his skipper from Peshawar Zalmi Darren Sammy in a match between Pakistan and World XI yesterday in Lahore.
It was the last over of the match when Hasan Ali was handed over the ball by his skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed with 34 runs in hand. The first ball of the over was smacked over the mid wicket region for a six bringing the equation to 28 runs from just 5 deliveries. The fans were praying for one good delivery and that’s when Ali bowled a perfect toe crusher leaving Sammy clueless. Sammy somehow managed to get some bat on it but lost his footing and fell on the ground.
The cricketing world saw a rare sight when Sammy smiled back at the bowler and applauded his mind boggling delivery which proved his sportsmanship quality. Hasan Ali also came forward to help his counterpart get back on his feet. Sammy once again patted his back to appreciate the brilliant delivery.

Winning the toss, World XI captain Faf Du Plessis chose to field. Babbar Azam knock of 86 runs off just 52 balls was of the highest caliber. He along with Shoaib Malik took Pakistan to 197runs at the end of their quota of 20 overs. However, World XI fell short of 20 runs courtesy some quality bowling by Sohail Khan and Shadab Khan.
The touring World XI is scheduled to play another two T20I on September 15 and September 17 respectively.
