Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who hung his boots on all forms of international cricket in 2019, was one of the most powerful hitters the country has ever had. The Punjab born cricketer stood up on many occasions to guide Team India through the line in difficult matches. In every format, Yuvraj has delivered a remarkable performance and achieved many milestones. Such a milestone was achieved during the 2007 T20 World Cup clash against England, when Yuvraj hit six consecutive sixes at Stuart Broad’s bowling alley.
In the 2007 T20 World Cup match against England, Yuvraj came over from the game after Broad in 19th when he hit six 6s in a row to bring his 50 to just 12 balls. He ended up knocking out 58 runs from just 16 balls to help India to 218/4 in 20 overs. India went on to win the game by 18 runs, and left-handed batter Yuvraj had also played a pivotal role in the semi-finals of the 2007 T20 World Cup. India went on to win the game by beating arch-rival Pakistan in the final.
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of his defeat to England, Yuvraj had a very special “partner” to revisit that day, and the partner was none other than his 9-month-old son, Orion Keech Singh. In a video posted by Yuvraj Singh on his Twitter, his son Orion was seen sitting on his father’s lap watching the 2007 match where Yuvraj had hit the six 6’s of Stuart Broad’s bowling.

“After 15 years, I couldn’t have found a better partner to watch this with,” Yuvraj tweeted.
Yuvraj made his T20I debut in 2007 against Scotland. He played a total of 58 games in the 20-over format, scoring 1,177 runs with 8 half-centuries to his name. He also scalped 28 wickets with an economy rate of 7.06.
He currently plays in the Road Safety World Series and represents India Legends led by Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
