Stuart Broad retires from Test cricket, how Yuvraj Singh reacted
New Delhi : Former Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh was quick to share his thoughts after England pacer Stuart Broad announced his retirement from the Test cricket. The ongoing fifth Ashes Test will be Broad's last match of Test career.
Yuvraj Singh, who had slammed six sixes in an over of Broad, shared his thoughts on social media and wished him good luck for the next leg of his life.
"Take a bow @StuartBroad8. Congratulations on an incredible Test career ???? one of the finest and most feared red ball bowlers, and a real legend! Your journey and determination have been super inspiring. Good luck for the next leg Broady!", Yuvraj tweeted.
During a press conference, Broad openly discussed how he underwent a significant transformation following Yuvraj's six consecutive sixes. He recalled the challenging day, realizing that he was only 21 or 22 years old at the time. Learning from the experience, he developed a comprehensive mental routine, acknowledging that he lacked the necessary preparation as an international performer during that moment. Prior to that event, he didn't possess a pre-ball routine or a clear focus, but the encounter prompted him to construct what he now refers to as his 'warrior mode.'
On September 19, 2007, during a match against India, Yuvraj had a confrontation with Andrew Flintoff, which unleashed his beast mode. In the penultimate over of the Indian innings, he smashed Broad all over the place, hitting six consecutive sixes and achieving his fifty in just 12 balls.
