Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has achieved many rare feats during his illustrious career including the six sixes he struck off Stuart Broad during the World T20 in 2007. Recently, English fast bowler, Stuart Broad came up with a hilarious reply as Yuvraj celebrated the 13th anniversary of the six sixes.
Incidentally, Yuvraj had a heated exchange with the England player Andrew Flintoff during the 2007 World T20 clash against England. This is what angered him so much that he decided to smash every ball. Yuvraj Singh struck two boundaries off two balls which angered the English all-rounder, who started to abuse the Indian cricketers. This is when Yuvraj decided to smash every ball.
Yuvraj celebrates six sixes anniversary; Broad gives a reply
Yuvraj put everything out of the park that a young Stuart Broad had to offer. He hit him for six sixes in an over and stormed to a 12-ball half-century. This remains the fastest in the shortest format of the game. He took Broad to cleaners hitting everything that came his way at Kingsmead, in Durban.
Yuvraj, who retired from international cricket last year, struck 58 runs off 16 balls at a colossal strike rate of 362.50. It will go down as one of the most memorable knocks in the history of the game.
The former India all-rounder, who played crucial roles in the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup, took to social media to celebrate the historic incident.
“13 years! How time flies!! #memories,” Yuvraj wrote.
To this, Broad responded by saying, “Time flies less than the cricket ball that night,” followed by a rocket emoji. Both cricketers have come a long since that incident and both of them holds great respect for each other.
West Indies batting great Chris Gayle also commented on the post calling Yuvraj Singh as “legendary.”
