Mumbai Indian’s former fielding coach Jonty Rhodes recently announced his departure from the role, breaking the hearts of many MI fans, as Rhodes was a part of MI setup for nine years.

Currently on a tour of India, Rhodes has been travelling the scenic Rajasthan and recently posted a picture on his Twitter account captioned ‘Famous Lassi Waala of Jaipur #perfection since 1944 #jaipur #eatlocal”.

Rhodes also mentioned that this lassi was the secret behind Yuvraj Singh’s six sixes in an over against England at Durban, during the World T20 2007 in South Africa. Yuvraj Singh had smacked Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over, becoming the first and only batsmen to do so in T20I history so far.

Yuvraj Singh scored a 12 ball fifty as well, which is the fastest fifty in international cricket and joint fastest in T20 cricket, along with Chris Gayle’s effort.

Yuvraj Singh is currently battling fitness issues in order to make his comeback into the Indian team. The 2011 World Cup Man of the tournament has been struggling to cement his place in the team since injuring himself during West Indies ODIs.

Yuvraj Singh took notice of Jonty Rhodes' tweet and replied “And also the secret of your legendary catches”.
