The English fast bowler Stuart Broad and Yuvraj Singh were part of one of the greatest moments in the world cricket. However, unfortunately, Stuart Broad was on the receiving end while Yuvraj Singh was the one, who is making sure Broad stay on the receiving end.
Well, you would have already guessed the moment. Yes, it was the time when Yuvraj Singh registered six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad. He whacked Broad to all corners of the park to bag 36 runs off the over. Meanwhile, the lanky fast bowler wishes a happy retirement to Yuvraj Singh.
India’s stylish southpaw called curtains:
On 19th September 2007, India’s Yuvraj Singh became the first-ever batsman to send six balls over the boundary in a row for the first time in a T20I. He hammered England’s Stuart Broad to every corner of the ground in the 19th over of the match. He was the first Indian and second overall player to achieve the feat in international cricket.
Yuvraj Singh brought the curtains down on his decorated cricket career on Monday as he announced his retirement from international cricket in a press conference in Mumbai.
The celebrated cricketer and one of the biggest match-winners the country has ever produced ended a career which spanned 19 years after he made his debut in the ICC KnockOut Trophy in Kenya.
Straightway, he impressed in his the very first match he got to bat against Australia, scoring a match-winning 84 against the likes of Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee and Jason Gillespie.
There was a time when whatever Yuvraj Singh touched turned into gold as during his prime, he earned the reputation of being a big-match player and he showcased that from time and again for the country, helping India win the inaugural World T20 in 2007 and then the 50-over World Cup in 2011 in India.
Meanwhile, Stuart Broad posted a picture of him and Yuvraj Singh, which was taken after the special knock in 2007 ICC World Cup. He termed Yuvraj as Legend in his post.
