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. The dazzling all-rounder, who called time on his career last year, recently recalled the incident during a live chat.
Incidentally, Yuvraj had a heated exchange with the England player Andrew Flintoff, which 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.
The two-time World Cup winner in a recent chat with former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen revealed that Flintoff told him that he will cut his throat off which then made the Indian batsman exchange a few words as well.
“I think Freddie bowled two good balls and he bowled a yorker which I managed to hit for a boundary. Then he told me that this was a dash shot, he got pretty elaborative. He said I am gonna cut your throat off and then I replied saying you see this bat in my hand? You know where I am gonna hit you with this bat?” Yuvraj said.
Adding further, Yuvraj Singh narrated that the whole incident angered him a lot. The illustrious cricketer finally gave a look to Andrew Flintoff and Dimitri Mascarenhas after taking Stuart Broad for cleaners. Incidentally, Mascarenas had hit Yuvraj for five sixes in an over. Though India won that match, those five sixes became a historic moment.
“I remember I was so angry when I hit Broadie for six sixes, I looked at Dimitri Mascarenhas and then I looked at Freddie,” Yuvraj told Kevin Pietersen on Instagram live. “Mascarenas had hit me for five sixes during an ODI match so that is why I looked at him first. It was one of those games which we all will remember,” he added.
