WATCH: Yuvraj Singh revisits his iconic 6 sixes against Stuart Board in the company of his adorable son

Yuvraj had smashed Broad for 6 sixes in an over during the 2007 T20 World Cup.

Yuvraj Singh | GettyYuvraj Singh is widely regarded as one of the finest white-ball cricketers India has ever produced. One of the main highlights of his career was hitting six sixes against Stuart Broad.

The southpaw achieved this rare feat on September 19, 2007 in the inaugural T20 World Cup encounter against England in Durban. He smashed Broad for 6 consecutive sixes, which also saw him registering a 12-ball fifty – fastest of all time in international cricket.

The swashbuckling left-hander eventually finished on 58 (three 4s and seven 6s) in 16 balls as India amassed 218/4 in their allotted 20 overs. In reply, England were restricted to 200/6 and conceded an 18-run defeat.

On the 15th anniversary of his knock, Yuvraj was accompanied by a very special "partner" to revisit that day. The partner was none other than his adorable son Orion Keech Singh, who is only 9-month-old.

In a video shared by Yuvraj on his Twitter account, Orion can be seen sitting on his father’s lap and watching the iconic 6 sixes.

"Couldn't have found a better partner to watch this together with after 15 years," Yuvraj captioned the video.

Ultimately, India went on to win the T20 World Cup in 2007 by defeating Pakistan in the final. Yuvraj Singh played a key role in the triumphant campaign, also slamming 30-ball 70 in the semi-final clash against Australia.
