Former Indian swashbuckling batsman Yuvraj Singh, who had announced his retirement from the highest level last year, has made numerous records in the game in his 20 years of experience in international cricket. Renowned for his attacking batting style, Yuvraj had made history by smashing six sixes in a single over.
During a match against England in the 2007 T20 World Cup, the left-handed batsman had a small tiff with the England captain Andrew Flintoff. Being angry over the same, Yuvraj removed his frustration by hitting the on crease bowler Stuart Broad for six sixes in six consecutive balls at the Kingsmead.
This had also resulted in the former middle-order batsman completing his half-century in just 12 balls. At that time, Yuvraj was the only batsman in the world to have made this unique record.
September 19 marked the 13th anniversary of Yuvraj’s amazing record in the history of the game. To celebrate this occasion, the former batsman took to his official Instagram handle to post a picture of himself where he can be seen hitting a six while donning the Indian cricket jersey. The cricketer captioned the picture as, “13 years! How time flies!!”
Cricketers react on Yuvraj Singh’s post
The post by the left-handed batsman fetched a lot of likes and comments from the greats of the game and the fans as it soon got viral on the social networking sites. A plethora of cricketers from all over the world including the likes of Chris Gayle, Gautam Gambhir, Munaf Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Harbhajan Singh and many more praised Yuvraj for his heroics in that particular match.
However, the comment that attracted the attention of netizens was made by none other than the bowler who faced the wrath of the Indian batsman that night, Stuart Broad. Giving a hilarious touch to the whole situation Stuart commented on Yuvi’s post, “Time flies less than the cricket ball that night.”
Taking note of the comment made by the pacer, the 38-year-old fondly replied that nobody can forget that match. Yuvraj answered, “one night we all will never forget.”
In that encounter against England in Durban, India had posted a total of 218/4 in 20 overs game owing to the half-centuries from Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh. In reply, despite the brilliant efforts, the English team lost the match by 18 runs.
