Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh brought out the vintage best in him as he smacked four sixes in four successive balls against South African legends. He rolled back the clock in time and hit some immaculate shots in his innings of unbeaten 52 off 22 balls. His knock helped India Legends put a score of 204/3 after Jonty Rhodes won the toss and sent India to bat.
He looked in good form right from the start of his innings and was hitting the ball sweetly. He added a 95-run stand with Sachin Tendulkar first who himself scored 60. Then with Manpreet Gony he added 63 in the last three and a half overs. The crowd at Raipur witnessed Yuvraj Singh at his very best during the course of his innings.
It was in the 18th over that he decided to unleash and hit four back to back sixes to Zander de Bruyn. After the end of the game, he revealed why he did not go for the fifth six.

“So after the fourth sixes, I was looking for fifth six but there were also two overs to go so I decided to rotate the strike and bat till the end to have a big score. The wicket was really good and the South had won the last game. So I wanted to bat till the end and am happy to do that,” said Yuvraj while replying to a query from ANI after the match.
