 ICC World T20, 2007: India had been struggling in limited overs cricket for the year prior to the inaugural World T20. Many senior players had decided to sit out after the team’s lacklustre performance in the 50-over World Cup, giving Yuvraj Singh yet another chance to showcase his match-winning abilities. In their second super-eights match against England, India were 136 for zero when they lost three wickets for 19 runs, leaving Yuvraj Singh in the thick of the action with newly- appointed captain MS Dhoni. Although Yuvraj Singh got into a verbal tiff with England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, it was the young Stuart Broad who had to bear the brunt. Broad was smashed for a huge six on the first ball, followed by five more maximums, for a record six sixes in an over in a T20 international. It took Yuvraj just 12 balls to score the fastest ever T20 fifty. Yuvraj’s crucial two innings in the tournament helped India win a cricket World Cup after 24 years.<br />(Image: Reuters)
