It was 60 for 3 wickets on Day 4 of Perth Test for England when James Vince decided to step and recover from his poor form. He was batting fine until he faced an absolute jaffer by Starc on the 5th delivery of the 30th over.
HERE’S HOW STARC BOWLED VINCE :
ICYMI: The ball of the century
Mitchell Starc’s ridiculous delivery from EVERY angle ?

Cricket fans all over the world didn’t hesitate from praising Starc. Cricket legends were also left speechless! Here’s how everyone on the internet reacted to this delivery by Starc!
SOME FANS WERE PRETTY MUCH CONCERNED ABOUT THE STUMPS.

Tbf Kohli would have struggled with that Starc delivery. No shame in losing a wicket to a piece of brilliance like that.

SOME SAID IT’S OVER EXAGGERATED.
Ball of the Century? Hyper-bole of the Century, more like #it hit a crack

ONE SAID HE COULD PLAY IT.
Personally if I’d received that delivery from Mitchell Starc I’d have switch hit it and helped it over fine leg/3rd man for 6. #justsaying

THE BALL IS TURNING MORE THAN MOEEN’S BALL DOES.
Mitchell Starc turning it more than Moeen Ali.

A NIGHTMARE FOR ENGLISH FANS.
Mitchell Starc bowling like Wasim Akram in the 1992 World Cup Final. Can we have some rain please?

SOME JUST COULDN’T GET OVER IT.
Just watching the Mitchell Starc wicket of Vince. Have had to replay it several times. Absolutely unbelievable!

JAMES NEESHAM SAID WHAT HE THINKS.
That Vince wicket ball would’ve dismissed every batsman in the history of the game. Not often you can say that #Ashes
