Twitter reacts as Yuvraj rediscovers his 'Sixer King' persona
At the very mention of Yuvraj Singh's name, fans will fondly mention his six sixes in an over against England in the 2007 T20 World Cup. Tonight, the former India all-rounder rolled back the years and smashed four sixes in four balls against South Africa Legends in the ongoing Road Safety World Series.
Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the 14th over, the left-hander started off with 15 runs off 12 deliveries for India Legends before his carnage began in the 18th over. Facing Zander de Bruyn, Yuvraj took a dot off the first delivery before smashing four successive sixes in the next four balls. At the end of the 18th over, the 39-year-old was batting with 38 runs off 18 deliveries and took just three balls to reach his fifty.
Earlier, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar notched his first 50-plus score in the tournament with support from S Badrinath, who retired hurt at 42. Riding on Yuvraj and Sachin's valuable knocks, India posted a comfortable score of 204/3 in their allotted 20 overs.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the southpaw's stormy knock:
