Indian former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh made history on this day in 2007 when he struck six sixes in a T20I over. It was on this day, 15 years ago, when he scripted history in the shortest format by smashing six sixes in an over against Stuart Broad against England in the inaugural edition of T20I World Cup in 2007 in South Africa.
It was in the 19th over of India’s innings when the flamboyant batsman set the Kingsmead on fire and hit Broad out off the park of six consecutive deliveries and also scored his fifty in only 12 balls which is still a world record in T20I.
After 15 years, today Yuvraj relived those 6 sixes with his son and shared a heartwarming video on his social media handle, he captioned “Couldn’t have found a better partner to watch this together with after 15 years”.
India eventually went on to became inaugural World T20 champions when they beat arch-rivals Pakistan in a thrilling final on September 24 in Johannesburg and Yuvraj played a crucial role to help India win its only T20 world cup.
Yuvraj had announced his retirement from all forms of cricket in 2019, with a career spanning over 304 ODIs, 58 T20Is, and 40 Tests. After the retirement, Yuvraj is currently playing in the Legends Road Safety Series for the Indian side and played some incredible innings for the India Legends.
