Yuvraj Singh 6 sixes match: The Indian all-rounder recited the whole conversation with the English all-rounder in Durban in 2007.
During the 21st match of the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 2007 between India and England in Durban, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh played an innings which will be doubtlessly remembered in not just the years but the decades to come.
Coming in to bat at No. 5 in the 17th over, Yuvraj hit England fast bowler Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over to score the fastest T20I half-century off 12 balls. Having achieved the remarkable feat exactly 12 years ago from today, it is worth mentioning that the record remains unbroken till date.
Yuvraj Singh 6 sixes match
Before getting out on the penultimate delivery of the Indian innings, Yuvraj had scored 58 (16) with the help of three fours and seven sixes to propel India to a match-winning 218/4 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
Many know that Yuvraj was involved in a heated discussion with England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff after hitting him for a couple of fours in the 18th over. The brunt of the argument was absorbed by Broad as he leaked 36 runs in the next over.
In one of his previous interviews with renowned actress Simi Garewal, Yuvraj had disclosed what exactly had happened between him and Flintoff. On the 12th anniversary of the milestone, we believe it is an apt day to go down the memory lane. Watch the full video below:
