It’s the 38th birthday of one of the most loved cricketer of all time our very own “Yuvi Paaji” aka Yuvraj Singh. The cricketer who not only showed fighting spirit on the field but off the field as well.
From helping India lift two world titles (The ICC T20 WC 2007 and the ICC WC 2011) to defeating cancer Yuvraj Singh has been a true inspiration. This young “gabru” from Punjab is known to take the bowlers for cleaners when he steps into the crease. Who knows this better than Stuart Broad (?).
Being a true “Yuvi Fan” we bring to you those historic 6 sixes of 6 balls by Yuvraj Singh that later on become the most “highlighted element” of his cricketing career. Carry on scrolling to relive the moment.
18.1 Over: 1st Six
After having a verbal heat-up with Andrew Flintoff in between the overs, Yuvraj Singh was all charged up. With 12 balls remaining India wanted to finish the innings on a high in this must-win encounter.
Stuart Broad all set to start the 19th over. Yuvraj Swings the bat and the ball sails past over the cow corner region for massive SIX. The towering six stands at 111 Meters on the distance count. Things have started to roll.
18.2 Over: 2nd Six
Broad gets into ball the 2nd delivery leaving behind the memories of last ball. It’s on the leg and Yuvraj flicks it for the second SIX over the backward square leg region. The ball goes into the crowd.
Flintoff might be feeling he has charged the wrong man at the wrong time. The Indian dugout and the crowd is enjoying this hitting by Yuvraj.
18.3 Over: 3rd Six
After 2 in 2 Broad might be thinking to switch the line from middle and leg to make it difficult for Yuvraj to reach out for the ball. It is on the middle and off length and Yuvraj steps legside and smashes it over extra cover for another maximum.
It’s a hattrick of sixes and the scoreboard reads 189/3. M.S. Dhoni is enjoying it from the Otherside there is something more too come over the course of the next 3 balls.
18.4 Over: 4th Six
Stuart Broad has now changed his side he is now coming round the wicket. Might be looking for a dipping yorker. Oh, it’s a full toss on the offside and Yuvraj deposits it into the stands over backward point for another six.
It’s 4 in a row and we are getting greedier for 6 in 6. Meanwhile Broad looks clueless as the England captain Paul Collingwood calls a conference meeting in the middle of the ground. Yuvraj is in no mercy mood.
18.5 Over: 5th Six
Broad again changes his side and goes back to over the wicket. Would it do any change?can he stop Yuvraj? Yuvraj goes down on one knee and swings the bat hard. It’s going over the midwicket.
It’s a SIX it’s the 5th in a row. Broad has conceded 30 runs off 5 balls and India has crossed the 200 mark. The crowd can’t believe what they are witnessing. It’s once in a lifetime moment for Yuvraj Singh. He now has all clearance for full monty.
18.6 Over: 6th Six
Yuvraj waits for Broad to deliver the 6th ball. He looks prepared for the 6th one. Broad has no other option but to bowl this one. Again it’s going over the wide mid-wicket region it is high into the night sky.
Is it a catch? No, it’s sailing past over the ropes its 6 sixes in an over. History has been made. Yuvraj did to Broad what Dimtri Mascarenhas did to him two weeks ago. It’s also the fifty for Yuvraj off just 12 balls. It’s the fastest 50 in the history of the game.
