Yuvraj Singh hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over 12-years Ago
It was on September 19, 2007, 12 years ago, that Yuvraj Singh hit English Pacer Stuart Broad for six sixes in a 2007 ICC World Twenty20 group game.
It was the 21st match of the mega-event, a Group E match between India and England in Kingsmead, Durban. India won the toss and chose to bat first on a right batting court. The Indian starters then, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir gave India an excellent start, sharing a starting position of 136-runs before Chris Tremlett, recently retired, gave him a score of 68.
Next is how the envelope was developed to create history in the world of cricket! Before 19-over of the innings, Andrew Flintoff had come to talk to Yuvraj Singh, who had just come in to bat. MS Dhoni was the pacifier, but by then, the damage was done. Flintoff was up against Stuart Broad.

English Bowler Broad this time for a fuller one wide outside off, Yuvraj was waiting for it and carved it over cover.
Desperate Stuart changed the angle, went around the wicket, but dished out a full toss outside off, which sliced over point for a maximum.
Stuart Broad now was not in the best of his rhythm and bowled a length ball on the stumps, Yuvraj cleared his front leg and swung it over the leg-side boundary.
Stuart Broad: With so much at stake, Yuvraj Singh delivered the goods as he got under another fullish length ball on the stumps and heaved it over mid-wicket to complete the six sixes in the over and also raced away to his fifty in just 12 balls, a record that is yet to be broken.
