Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh shared a video on Instagram to mark the day he smashed six sixes off six balls during a match 16 years ago. Created by sand artist Fr. Christy Valiyaveettil, the video captures the unforgettable moment that happened during the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup in 2007 when India faced England in Durban.
Singh’s incredible batting skills were on full display during the match. He launched six consecutive sixes in the 19th over bowled by Stuart Broad. But he didn’t stop there. He achieved the fastest 50 in T20 International cricket, doing so in just 12 balls. During his 58 off 16 balls, Yuvraj Singh hit three fours and seven sixes, six of which came in consecutive balls in a single over thrown by Stuart Broad.
