One of India’s best ever limited overs’ champion Yuvraj Singh looking back at his World T20 heroics called his six sixes as ‘one of the great days in sport’.
The cricket world only last month celebrated the tenth anniversary of Yuvraj’s onslaught in Stuart Broad’s 19th over of the India-England T20 encounter of the inaugural World T20.
Answering a question on the adversity Stuart Broad would have had to face running in to bowl the final delivery of his over after being spanked for six sixes, Yuvraj replied, “The pressure was on him. It was the sixth ball. It was one of the great days in sport. I knew it was my day. I knew the bowler would make a mistake because everything I hit would come from the middle of the bat.”
Yuvraj reminded how the feat was also a case of redemption for him after being struck for five sixes of his left arm spin by English counterpart Dimitri Mascarenhas in an odi earlier in the same year. “Very few people remember but I do. I was hit for five sixes in an over. So I was happy to hit back,” he said
