Yuvraj Singh was at his explosive best once again during the Road Safety World Series clash between India Legends and South Africa Legends. The left-handed batsman, famous for his 6 sixes off Stuart Broad in 2007, turned back the clock as he smashed Zander de Bruyn for 4 consecutive sixes. The big screen in Raipur also couldn’t resist the excitement as it displayed ‘Sixer King on Roll’.

Yuvraj brings back 2007 nostalgia
It was the 18th over of India Legends’ innings. The score read 152/3 and Tendulkar’s side was in search for some quick runs towards the end. Zander de Bruyn started the over with a good delivery, however he would not have imagined in the wildest of his dreams that Yuvraj was in no mood to sit quietly. The 39-year-old opened his arms with the first six over cow corner. He then smashed one into the sightscreen, following it up with another mammoth six. As the fans wished for one more, Yuvraj didn’t disappoint as he smoked his 4th consecutive six, this time even deeper over long-on.

Yuvi went on to smash two more sixes towards the end as he completed a 21-ball fifty in style. He ended the innings, unbeaten on 52 off 22 deliveries as India Legends posted a mammoth total of 204/3 after 20 overs.
Here is how Twitter reacted to Yuvraj’s power-hitting:
