Yuvraj Singh Hits 6 Sixes Highlights: If the Indian team in World Cup T20 2007 were a Marvel’ movie Avengers’ cast, Yuvraj Singh would surely be its “Thor”. Yuvraj Singh smashed 6 huge sixes in 6 consecutive balls, as England, especially Stuart Broad, looked hapless. The ball flew in every corner of the stadium, while the Kingsmead crowd roared in delight! By the time Yuvraj returned to the dugout, he held the record of scoring the fastest half-century in T20Is. Ahead of ICC T20 World Cup 2021, the record is still held by Yuvraj Singh after 14 years.
India vs England, ICC World Twenty20 2007, Durban: 21st Match Highlights
The England side was shellshocked by Yuvraj Singh’s power-hitting all around the park. Andrew Flintoff was shocked, Paul Collingwood looked flabbergasted, and Broad’s only wish was that the night to get over soon. India was already cruising at the run rate of 9 per over when Yuvraj and Flintoff had an altercation on-field. Click here to download the Free PDF ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Schedule.
The field umpires had to step in to stop the spat between Flintoff and Yuvraj, and so did the captains on either side. However, it was only one side that faced the brunt, i.e., England. Broad was given the ball in the 19th over, and little did he know what was about to come. His name, that night, was about to be registered in the record books, albeit for the wrong reasons.
Here’s a look at what happened next:
19.1 – Stuart Broad to Yuvraj Singh: 6 Runs!
Yuvraj hits a huge six in the cow corner, i.e., between long-on and midwicket, on the first delivery.
19.2 – Stuart Broad to Yuvraj Singh: 6 Runs!
Yuvraj hits a superb flick shot and the ball just sails over the backward square leg boundary with ease.
19.3 – Stuart Broad to Yuvraj Singh: 6 Runs!
Broad changes his length and Yuvraj improvises, too, by smashing a six over the extra cover region.
19.4 – Stuart Broad to Yuvraj Singh: 6 Runs!
Yuvraj hits 4 sixes in a row. This time the wide full-toss delivery is carved over the backward point area.
19.5 – Stuart Broad to Yuvraj Singh: 6 Runs!
Yuvraj sits on a knee and sends the ball into orbit flying over the midwicket. England is clueless!
19.6 – Stuart Broad to Yuvraj Singh: 6 Runs!
Yuvraj makes it 6 in six balls! The ball is hit over the wide mid-on, amidst the crowd’s deafening cheers.
