Just a day after India fast bowler Mohammad Shami break Alastair Cook’s off-stump into two parts, cricket fans around the world had another opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sight of a stump being broken by a fast bowler.

It happened on the very last ball of the first innings during the One-Day International game between Zimbabwe and West Indies. Looking to hit the last ball of the innings out of the park, Zimbabwe fast bowler Chris Mpofu went for a wild heave off the bowling of Carlos Brathwaite. However, he failed to connect with the ball and the full and straight delivery hit the middle stumps, breaking it into two.


Enjoy the wicket:

Meanwhile, the West Indies bowlers staged a brilliant fightback in the last 15 overs to reduce the hosts to 257 despite a brilliant start. Zimbabwe were coasting comfortably at one stage when they were 190 for 2 in the 38th over and were looking destined to post a total at least close to 300 but failed to capitalise on the solid platform. Last heard, West Indies were 33 for 0 in 7.1 overs. The visitors will be looking to register their second victory in a row after defeating Sri Lanka in their opening game.


    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
