Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians are currently locking horns in the 7th match of IPL 2019 at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.
After being put into bat by RCB skipper Virat Kohli, MI got off to a flying start as Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock added 54 runs in 6.3 overs. After the dismissal of openers, it was Yuvraj Singh who once again turned the clock to remind the cricket fans of his vintage batting prowess.
Having gain confidence from 35-ball 53 against Delhi Capitals on Sunday, the veteran southpaw looked at ease for his 12-ball stay at the crease. The highlight of Yuvi’s 23-run knock was his three consecutive sixes off wrist-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
During the 14th over of Mumbai’s innings, the left-hander went berserk and smashed Chahal over deep mid-wicket, straight over his head and long-on to amass three sixes. In an attempt to go for the fourth six, Yuvraj was caught by Siraj just a couple of yards inside the boundary rope at long-off.
Twitterati went crazy after seeing the vintage batting display of Yuvraj Singh.
Here are some of the reactions:
