Yuvraj Singh was in his full glory in the semi-final match of the ongoing Road Safety World Series. He hit four sixes in five balls and at a point looked in shape to repeat his feat of six sixes.

Repetitive Yuvi

Yuvraj Singh has had a wonderful cricket career which saw him achieving many feats in life. He played in key role in winning multiple matches for India in his illustrated career. India’s man of the World Cup 2011 is remembered for his six sixes in the inaugural T20 World Cup. In 2007, when T20 was still not so familiar to most of the cricket world, when cricket fraternity and fans were still taking time to accept the format, India went on to win the first ever T20 World Cup. It gave platform to a young Indian team and MS Dhoni to shine as a skipper. While the World Cup is memorable to the Indian fans for obvious reason, cricket fans across the world still recall the tournament for Yuvraj Singh.
