Yuvraj hit six sixes after threatening to cut his neck!
The first edition of the T20 World Cup was held in South Africa 13 years ago from today. One of the most memorable events of the World Cup was the six-ball six in an over that Yuvraj had hit. Yuvraj has recently spoken about this, which has revealed new information.
Yuvraj did the carnage against England’s fast bowler Stuart Broad. However, Yuvraj did not do anything out of anger over Broad. This left-arm batsman was woven by Broad’s teammate Flintoff.
Before the start of the 19th over of the match, Yuvraj Singh had a heated exchange with English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff. Then Broad came in bowling. One by one the ball was thrown into the gallery. So, the question was in the mind of many people what they spoke that day?
In this regard, Yuvraj said,
“I hit four in two good deliveries in Flintoff’s over. He didn’t like it either. As I was talking to the batsman on the other end I heard him telling me the two shots were ridiculous. Then I ask him what you said?”
Then the Indian batsman added, “Flintoff told me he would cut my neck. I answer you see the bat in my hand? You don’t know where I’m going to hit you with it.”
The umpire came and separated the two. But by then Yuvraj’s head was hot. Just try to play big shots after saying all. The victim of the six sixes Broad who suffered. On the other hand, Yuvraj completed the fifty with just 12 balls and set a record of half-century with the least number of balls.
