Former Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh once again stole the show in ongoing Road Safety World Series. Following the win over South Africa earlier, where he had boasted a flurry of sixes, the veteran repeated the feat again. This time it was West Indies Legends bowler Mahendra Nagamootoo, whose stats took a hit. The incident happened in 19th over of the first innings, when Indian batsmen on the pitch were eager to boost the run-rate and to post a respectable score on the board. And as they say, “Cometh the hour, Cometh the man,” Punjab stalwart Yuvraj turned back the days once again to hit not one, not two, but four sixes in a span of just 5 balls.
The maximums by Yuvraj boosted India’s score drastically and fired them over 200-run mark. However, the hitman still ended up missing half-century by one run. Following the conclusion of the first innings, India Legends are defending a total of 218.
This is how it happened:
The six mania started right from the first ball of the over. The first delivery by Mahendra Nagamootoo was fired in stands towards square leg by Yuvraj Singh as the veteran played a delightful pull. Following the hit, Yuvi then played a lofted shot on the second delivery to launch ball for maximum over deep mid wicket. Adding to the bowler’s misery, the Punjab stalwart hit another six in a tow with shot towards long-on. However, the Caribbean then broke the flow with an off-stump delivery next. Just when the spinner gained confident again, Yuvraj shattered all hopes with his fourth six, again towards long-on. Following four maximums in five balls, the bowler once again took off-stump route to avoid getting punished.
The clip of Yuvraj’s carnage has gone viral on internet, drawing comparisons from his heroics against South Africa Legends and the historic feat from the 2007 T20 World Cup.
