Yuvraj Singh shared some nostalgic posts on social media on Thursday, 12 years to the day when he smashed Stuart Broad for six sixes in one over in a World T20 match in 2007.

Yuvraj also retweeted posts on the 2007 knock by Harbhajan Singh and Mumbai Indians. He also retweeted a post by Ravi Shastri, India head coach, who had been on commentary at the time.

On September 19, 2007, in the World T20 match in Durban, Yuvraj s had hit six sixes off Broad in an over during his cameo of 16-ball 58.

The innings remains etched in the history of Indian cricket. Then India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was watching Yuvraj s carnage from the other end.

I remember getting hit for five sixes against England but very few people remember that, so I was happy to give it back, Yuvraj had said in a 2017 interview. Yuvraj was hit for five consecutive sixes by England s Dimitri Mascarenhas in an ODI at The Oval.
