Ashes

WATCH: Mitchell Starc delivers the 'ball of the 21st century'

2017-12-18 10:00

Cape Town - Throughout the Ashes series in Australia this summer, England's batsmen have struggled to get on top of the Australian bowlers. 

And it doesn't help when they produced unplayable deliveries like the one Australian spearhead Mitchell Starc bowled to James Vince on the fourth day of the third Test in Perth.

Already 259 runs behind when their second innings started, England were in early trouble, losing Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman and captain Joe Root.

Vince (55) and Dawid Malan had started to fight back, however until Starc, coming round the wicket managed to hit a crack and drag the ball back off the wicket into the off-stump of Vince.

One of the balls of the 21 century? You be the judge...
