On 19th September, 2007 in an inaugural match of the T20 World Cup, Yuvraj hit the Stuart Broad for six sixes just in an over. 13 years have passed & Yuvraj took to social media to remember the feat by posting an image from one of the sixes he hit off Broad in that crucial over. Broad also remembered the day by commenting, “Time flies less than the cricket ball that night.” The comment left Yuvraj in splits as he fondly recalled the game as “one night we all will never forget.”
Chris Gayle who is also a legendary batsman commented on Yuvraj’s feat & called him “legendary” while Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj’s teammate from that match, went filmy in his appreciation. Gambhir commented, “Ye record mujhe de de Thakur”, using a filmy dialogue to refer Yuvraj’s unforgettable feat. During that innings India finished on 218/4 in just 20 overs & England replied perfectly but fall short of 18 runs.
Yuvraj’s innings was a reply to England as Mascarenhas hit Yuvraj for six sixes in just one over in an ODI series between the two teams that preceded the T20 World Cup. Yuvraj played 58 T20Is for India & scored 1,177 runs.
