REVEALED: Yuvraj Singh tells what Andrew Flintoff said to him before he hit six sixes against Stuart Broad
When asked whether the heated exchange of words charged him up, the flamboyant left-hander said that it really worked him up.
New Delhi: Out of the many moments Yuvraj Singh has given his fans to cherish, one that stands out is the one where he hammered England pacer Stuart Broad for six consecutive sixes in ICC World Twenty20 2016.
Just before the Broad over, Yuvi was being provoked by Andrew Flintoff.
In an interview with former Bollywood actress Simi Garewal for Star World, Yuvi had revealed the exact words which were exchanged between the two cricketers. The southpaw refused to speak the derogatory words which were used by both of them.
Recalling the incident, Yuvi said Flintoff told him, "Those were ____ ridiculous shots, because I had hit him for two boundaries in that over. I said _____ you. Then he said, excuse me. I said you heard what I said. And he said I will cut your throat off. I said you see this bat in my hand. You know where I gonna hit you with this bat?"
When asked whether the heated exchange of words charged him up, the flamboyant left-hander said, "It got me really worked up. I was really angry and I just wanted to hit every ball out of the ground, just give it back. Sometimes, it's good for you. Sometimes, it backfires. But on that day I think it backfired them."
