Yuzvendra Chahal would have feared the worst when Yuvraj Singh decided to take him on during the game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians on Thursday.  Virat Kohli handed the ball to Chahal in the 14th over to give the team a breakthrough. The leg-spinner had bowled brilliantly before that, conceding just 12 off 2 overs in addition to dismissing Quinton de Kock.

Yuvraj, on the other hand, had started slowly and had scored just 5 off the 8 balls he had faced before deciding to free his arms. And the southpaw turned back the clock with his trademark sixes. The World Cup-winning star hit Chahal for three consecutive sixes to bring back the memories of the game against England in the 2007 World T20 when he had hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over.

But Chahal soon received his reward for being brave as he dismissed Yuvraj on the fourth ball after the latter went for the fourth six. He bowled a wide googly and Yuvraj hit one straight to Mohammed Siraj at long-off.

Chahal has now hilariously revealed he felt like Stuart Broad after conceding three consecutive sixes to Yuvraj Singh.

“When he (Yuvraj) hit three sixes, I felt like Stuart Broad,” Chahal said at the post-match press conference.

“You know he is a legend batsman and I backed myself. I had to bowl a bit up, might be a chance to get him out because it is a smaller ground. So that time, I thought of bowling my best delivery and he got sixes. That you cannot help and hence I bowled a wider googly,” he told reporters in post-match session.

Here is a clip showing Yuzvendra Chahal speaking about those sixes:

Royal Challengers Bangalore, meanwhile, lost the game by 6 runs to suffer their second consecutive loss of the season. Chasing 188, the Royal Challengers could only manage 181 for 5.
