West Indies pacer Sheldon Cottrell probably bowled the worst delivery of all time in the cricket history on Wednesday.
The incident happened during the third One-day International (ODI) between the West Indies and Bangladesh, when Cottrell's delivery went directly towards the second slip. The umpire immediately called it a no-ball.
Following the incident, Cottrell apologised to his teammates and returned to action.
The West Indies lost the match by 18 runs. Cottrell had bowled nine overs and took just one wicket. He conceded 59 runs.
The West Indies kicked off their Test series on a high as they whitewashed Bangladesh 2-0. They lost the opening ODI of the three-match series but bounced back to win the second match.
Chris Gayle's 73 off 66 and an unbeaten 74 off 41 from Rovman Powell went in vain as the West Indies lost the third ODI and the series 1-2.
