Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has played many memorable and iconic knocks throughout his glorious career. However, one of the memorable knocks of Yuvi’s came during the 2007 World Cup, which took place in South Africa, where he created history by smashing back-to-back six sixes off Stuart Board.
The six-sixes moment is regarded as an instrumental effort by Yuvraj Singh in helping team India win the World Cup 207. Yuvraj Singh was fired-up after a verbal spat with England’s all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, who was sledging him again and again.
However, the sledging and verbal spat pumped-up Yuvraj Singh and as a result. England’s fast bowler Stuart Board became the victim of Yuvraj Singh’s heroics with the bat and those ‘six sixes’ could have ended the cricketing career of Stuart Board. During his knock, Yuvraj Singh rocketed away to a 12-ball half-century and it was also the first time it happened in a T20I.
To date, it is the fastest half-century. Yuvraj Singh finished off his knock with on 58 (three 4s and seven 6s) in 16 balls as India amassed 218 for 4. It has been 13 years to that iconic moment, that made everyone sit on the edge of their seats, but it is still etched in every cricket fan’s memory.
Recently, a fan decided to make everyone nostalgic by sharing the video of Yuvraj Singh’s iconic six-sixes. However, he shared the video with a twist. In the video, Yuvraj Singh, who is a left-handed batsman can be seen batting right-handed and also Stuart Broad bowling left-handed instead of right-handed action. The video was shared on Twitter by a popular YouTuber named ‘Rob Moody’. Sharing the video, the popular YouTuber wrote:
“Yuvraj Singh. Right-handed. Pulverising Stuart Broad for those six 6’s!”
