Yorkers are the fast bowler’s most powerful weapon. You feel like you have got one over on the batsman when you duck one in onto his toes in front of middle stump. Even when it doesn’t get the wicket, it’s impossible to score.
But the yorker target area is small and even a slight error makes your toe-crusher an easy full-toss or half-volley.
You have to practice smart.
Like a darts player aiming for the treble twenty; you have to be relentless in your question to have a yorker you can be proud of. You can see how effective it is just by watching the IPL career of Lasith Malinga.
