2007 World T20 exploits, six sixes, and demolition of Australia
Yuvraj Singh had an enriching World T20 2007 tournament as he gave the Indian fans two amazing moments to cherish for a lifetime. First came against England in a group match, where fifties from openers Sehwag and Gambhir has taken India to 136 in the 15th over. With not many overs to go, Yuvraj Singh walked in to propel his side to a big total and all it took was a prod from Andrew Flintoff to make the Punjabi lad go berserk.
Yuvraj Singh caught hold of Stuart Broad and hit him for six sixes in an over, making him the first man to do so in T20I cricket and also completed his 50 in just 12 balls, the fastest so far in international cricket. He ended up with 56 runs in 16 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes and India put on 218/4 on the scoreboard.
His second amazing contribution to the team’s cause came in the second semi-final of the tournament, where India faced Australia in Durban. India again batted first and looked in a spot of bother when Yuvraj turned the heat on with 70 off just 30 balls with 5 fours and as many sixes and with the help of MS Dhoni’s 36, took India to 188/5.
