Cricketer throws ball so hard that it breaks stump

During a cricket match between India and England—one that was delayed multiple times by a dog—India’s Mohammed Shami threw a ball so hard to Alastair Cook that it broke his stump.

The ball knocked the top of the stump for what is known in the States as a “strikeout” and was powerful enough to break it in two. It was insane, and it put India up 4/1. Celebration ensued.

You don’t see that every day.
