We don't often see spin bowlers getting huge amount of turn these days. However, West Indies' Gudakesh Motie got a vicious one on Thursday (July 11) while playing at Lord's, and more significantly, it was Ben Stokes, England's Test captain, who left absolutely jaw-dropped after losing his wicket by that special delivery.

It was the last ball of the 55th over of England's innings. Stokes, batting on 4 off 11 balls, went for a drive, only to see the ball going through the gate before uprooting the middle stump.

Ben Stokes Mouth Open Reaction To Motie's Beauty

The turn was so much by Motie that left Stokes' mouth opened for a while before beginning to walk off after acknowledging the beauty of the delivery.

Motie, on the other hand, was absolutely pumped up after cleaning up Stokes with a delivery which will be remembered for a long time.

At the time of writing this,England are 277/5, with Joe Root and debutant Jamie Smith in the middle, batting on 67* and 6* respectively. 

Meanwhile, West Indies, batting first, could only muster 121 in the first innings.
