"It (the yorker) took a lot of work but it all depends on the batter and how they move in the crease, for me it is about keeping the ball close to the batter.

With the new ball, it (the conditions) was pretty good but it still was a good wicket for cricket. All in all happy with the performance and the team put in a big effort today," he added.

Besides, Sean Williams bowled a perfect yorker to dismiss Nicholas Pooran who come down the crease to smash him over the boundary rope. However, it was Pooran's mistake who turned a length delivery into a yorker which cost him to lose his wicket.
