Yuvraj names three players who can score 200 in T20 cricket
Scoring a double century against any opposition is certainly an uphill task in modern cricket. But when the format is reduced to twenty overs, even scoring a century gets tougher. Meanwhile, former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh reckons that there are players who can defy all odds to score a double century in T20 cricket.
The former elegant southpaw who has been following cricket closely these days believes that there are three players who have all the tools to achieve the feat. Yuvraj Singh has picked Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Rohit Sharma as the former feels that only these players have the ability to score a double century in T20 cricket.
We all know that Yuvraj Singh took everyone by surprise when he smashed Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over during the inaugural edition of the T20I World Cup in South Africa back in 2007. In the process, Yuvraj Singh created the record for the fastest half-century in just twelve balls, a record which remains fresh in our hearts even today.
Talking about the possibility of scoring 200-run mark in the shortest format of the game, Yuvraj said that it is quite tough to achieve. “Well Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers have retired from international cricket, oh wait, Gayle is still playing I forgot,” Yuvraj Singh was quoted as saying by Sport360.
“In my eyes, these were the two guys who could have scored a double hundred in T20I cricket. Rohit Sharma would be the third guy I can think of when it comes to a double T20 century,” Yuvraj Singh added in a statement.
