Hardcore cricket fans, to this day, remember the magical delivery bowled by Shane Warne to English opener Andrew Strauss in 2005. The delivery spun sharply from Strauss' offside to shatter his leg stump, making it one of the most iconic moments in Test cricket of that year.
Pakistan's leg-break spinner Ghulam Fatima, a few days ago, managed to recreate the delivery when she bowled out a batter during a domestic cricket match.
The left-handed batter named Fareeha advanced down the pitch in an attempt to hit Fatima's spinning delivery out of the park when the sharply-spun ball got the better of her.
In similar fashion to what happened to Strauss, Fareeha could only watch as the ball spun sharply to shatter her leg stump.
The ball had pitched on the off-side.
Fatima took to Twitter to share the moment, and her bowling figures from the match as well.
Cricket expert Osman Samiuddin was all praise for the bowler.
Tariq Bhatti was quite impressed with that ball.
Twitter account @Elephantaro was taken aback at the sharp turn the ball took after skidding off the track.
Another Twitter user Ramiz Speaks loved everything about the ball. We don't blame him.
A lot of people started tagging former Aussie bowling great Shane Warne.
Ghulam Fatima has played only three Women's ODI matches for Pakistan. She has taken six wickets so far, with best bowling figures of 3/28.
