Spinners can make any match beautiful, especially when they are given a turning pitch. And that is what Pakistan’s leggie Yasir Shah got in the second Test against Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla International Stadium in Mirpur. He deceived Bangladesh's opener Imrul Kayes with a flighted tossed up delivery which dramatically turned to dismiss Kayes.

Bangladesh were chasing a colossal total of 550 set by Pakistan to win. Their opener Kayes was looking in good touch till Shah came into bowl and started troubling him with his turning deliveries.

It was the third ball of the 18th over of Bangladesh's second innings. Kayes was the batsman, Shah tossed it up outside off and the 28-year-old went to drive it down the off-side but was beaten by the turn. It turned a long way in and clicked the middle stump.

Here is the video of the classic delivery:
