There's masterclass bowling at one end and then there's this ball that was used to dismiss South African batsman Dean Elgar in a first-class match at the other.

Towards the end of the four-day match between Hampshire and Somerset, Elgar was dismissed in the second innings for 60 runs by a spinning ball delivered by 20-year-old legbreak bowler Mason Crane.

And while it did indeed spin, the double-bounce that came with it is what made it absolutely filthy.

Elgar mistimed his attempted sweep as horribly as Crane delivered the wicket-taking ball - the result being both left extremely red-faced.

Crane took a five-bagger in the second innings to spin Hampshire to a 90-run victory over Somerset in the County Championship.
