On this day, Yuvraj Singh hit 6 sixes in an over against Stuart Broad in the 2007 T20 World Cup and completed his fifty in just 12 balls.

Yuvraj Singh hit 6 sixes in one over on this day: Cricket is a game of uncertainties and anything can happen at any time. In 2007, when the T20 World Cup was played for the first time, no one saw the Indian team as a strong contender when it reached South Africa. After this, the young Indian team under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni proved everyone wrong and won the title. In this tournament, apart from India’s victory against Pakistan in the final, one more thing which was memorable for the fans was Yuvraj Singh hitting 6 consecutive sixes in one over of England fast bowler Stuart Broad, which completed 16 years today.

Yuvraj Singh is counted among the biggest match-winning players of world cricket. An example of this was seen in the first T20 World Cup. When the Indian team came to play on the ground of Durban on 19 September, no one had imagined that today a big record in the history of cricket would be seen being made.

In this match against England, the Indian team got a chance to bat first. By the 17th over on the fast pitch of Durban ground, Team India had scored 155 runs at the loss of 3 wickets. After this, Andrew Flintoff came to bowl the 18th over of the innings for England and at that time Yuvraj Singh was present on the pitch along with captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Flintoff gave 12 runs in his over but after finishing his over he clashed with Yuvraj Singh and an altercation was seen between the two on the field.

Sixer King Yuvraj Singh’s storm came in the 19th over

Andrew Flintoff would not have imagined at that time how costly the clash with Yuvraj was going to be for his team. England gave the responsibility of bowling the 19th over of the innings to the then 21 year old young fast bowler Stuart Broad. On the first ball of this over, Yuvraj hit a six towards midwicket. He flicked the second ball over square leg and sent it to the audience. On the third ball, Yuvraj hit a six while swinging the bat towards the off side.

Stuart Broad was under a lot of pressure after hitting consecutive sixes on the first 3 balls of the over. Due to this, he bowled a full toss on the fourth ball, which Yuvi easily hit for a six. Now everyone’s eyes were fixed on the fifth ball and Yuvi hit it towards midwicket for a six.

On the last ball, most of the players sitting in the dug out of the Indian team were also standing and eagerly watching whether Yuvraj would be successful in hitting 6 sixes in a row. Along with making this record, Yuvi beautifully hit Broad’s last ball towards wide mid-on and got his name registered in the record book.

Completed the fastest half century in international cricket

Yuvraj Singh created a big world record by hitting 6 consecutive sixes in an over. At the same time, he also completed his half-century in just 12 balls, which even today remains a world record in international cricket in terms of the fastest time to reach this figure in any format. On the basis of Yuvraj’s inning of 58 runs in 16 balls, India was able to score 218 runs in 20 overs. Later Team India won this match by 18 runs.
