Yuvraj Singh has been one of the crucial cogs of the Indian cricket team during his heydays. His contribution to Indian cricket and the Indian Premier League has never been in doubt.
The former southpaw is the first and only batsman to smash the fastest fifty in just 12 balls in T20Is. The cricket fraternity saw Yuvraj unleashing his storm in the T20 World Cup match against England in 2007.
Yuvraj Singh earned the tag of a ‘sixer king’ when he smashed 6 sixes in an over off Stuart Broad’s bowling. The stylish elegant batsman also made waves in the Indian Premier League.
Plying his trade for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2014 season, he played one heck of an innings against Delhi Daredevils. Yuvraj played an absolute gem of a knock that took the cricket world by storm.
Batting first, Royal Challegers Bangalore managed to post a huge total of 186 for the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs. Yuvraj Singh top-scored with an unbeaten 68 off just 29 balls.
His star-studded innings was laced with 1 boundary as many as 9 sixes at a strike rate of 234.48. On the other hand, Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) bowlers were left clueless most of the time.
Yuvraj Singh smashes 4 sixes in an over
Yuvraj Singh and a hat-trick of sixes is an unbounded love story without any doubt. The former star cricketer has made it a habit of thumping a hat-trick of sixes with relative ease. During the 38th game of IPL 2014 between RCB and DD, Yuvraj Singh showcased his true colours in the last over.
Rahul Shukla was given the ball to deliver the last over. Sachin Rana scored a single to bring the dangerous Yuvraj back on strike. The former left-handed batsman smashed a hat-trick of sixes followed by a dot ball and then finished the over with another 6. In reply, Delhi Daredevils could score 170/7 in 20 overs. As a result, RCB won the game by 16 runs.
