Blast from the Past: Yuvraj Singh’s wonderful innings against Pakistan in a T20 WC

This is one of Yuvraj Singh‘s – India’s perennial southpaw – best innings against Pakistan. Yuvraj Singh smashed arch Pakistan with his 72-run blitz off just 36 balls at a strike-rate of 200. During his stay he smashed 3 consecutive sixes off world’s best spinner Saeed Ajmal.
Yuvraj Singh masterful innings lead India to a very challenging total of 192 runs after being invited to bat in a must win match for India.
Yuvraj Singh primarily dealt in boundaries but favoured aerial route more as he smashed 7 sixes and 4 fours.
India won the second match easily by 11 runs and leveled the series 1-1.
The highlight for Yuvraj Singh was in his cricket career was winning The World Cup in 2011, but soon after that came the biggest challenge of his life, as he was diagnosed with a cancer which required a two-and-a-half month treatment in the USA. He returned home after chemotherapy in April 2012, fairly confident that he would resume his cricket career further but after that horrible incident Yuvraj Singh has never been the player he once was for national team. So this was a timely innings for middle order Southpaw which helped him earn a place in Indian team for 2012 T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka later that year.
