The Indian all-rounder, Washington Sundar bowled a magical off-spinning delivery in the ongoing County Championship match between Lancashire and Kent. Jordan Cox was the victim of Sundar as the batter failed to read drift in the delivery and the ball turned square from the rough created on the pitch. Sundar had a dream start as he managed to scalp four wickets and helped his side to get in a strong position against Northamptonshire.
The incident took place in the 32nd over of the 4th innings on the final day of the game. Washington Sundar managed to scalp a couple of wickets in 13 overs he bowled, out of which 14 were maiden. The right-arm spinner bowled with excellent control over his line and lengths and did not let any opposition batters dominate against him.
