Best Answer

A yorker ball hits the cricket pitch around the batsman's feet. When a batsman assumes a normal stance this generally means that the cricket ball bounces on the cricket pitch on or near the batsman's popping crease. A batsman who advances down the wicket to strike the ball (typically to slower or spin bowlers) may by so advancing cause the ball to pitch (or land) at or around their feet and may thus cause themselves to be "yorked".

What is a 'yorker ball' in Cricket?

A yorker is a ball that is bowled and lands at or near the feet of the batsman instead of bouncing on the pitch at a normal distance. They are used to prevent a batter from being able to score a lot and give good chance of taking a wicket. Adding more into it, a yorker delivery restricts batsman to swing his bat and rather play more defensive to save wicket.
