New Delhi: On this day in 2007, swashbuckling Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh created history by hitting six sixes in an over off English bowler Stuart Broad in a ICC World T20 match at Kingsmead.
A heated exchange with all-rounder Andrew Flintoff in the previous over made Yuvraj furious. But this time his bat did the taking and poor Broad was at the receiving end.
The left-hander managed to hit the ball from the meat of the bat on all six occasions, treating the young pacer with utter disdain.
It was the fourth time that a batsman had managed to hit six sixes in an over.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also took to micro-blogging site Twitter to remember the memorable occasion.
