10 years of Yuvraj Singh's six sixes: Relive the moment (video)
New Delhi : Time flies! It's been 10 years when Yuvraj Singh had smashed six sixes against England in T20 world cup match.
India won that world cup by beating Pakistan in the final game, but highlight of the tournament was Yuvraj Singh's smacker to Stuart Broad after a little exchange of words with Flintoff.
On 19th September at the Kingsmead cricket ground in Durban, Yuvraj Singh exchanged some words with England skipper Andrew Flintoff as he came in to play in the 17th over.
When Stuart Broad came in to bowl the 19th over of the match, Yuvraj Singh was on strike and later on fire to hit all six bowls out of the boundaries.
Yuvraj played an innings of 58 runs off just 14 balls to guide India to 218 runs. England batted well but managed to reach only 200 runs in their 20 overs.
Talking to The Times of India on his achievement, Yuvraj said, “It’s been 10 years since the six sixes, it’s been a long time. I still feel just as young. It’s been a long journey but the memory of that day is quite fresh in my heart. It was really a great day.”
“I was getting a lot of flak for not scoring enough runs before that in the tournament. Also, we had just lost badly in the World Cup a few months before that. We were not playing so well and we were a young team. We didn’t have greats like Tendulkar, Dravid, or Ganguly on our side (for the World T20). It was a difficult time for Indian cricket, which made that moment even more special for me”, he added.
