The Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has hit six sixes in an over by Stuart Broad. The occasion was the World T20 encounter against England, the venue Kingsmead, Durban, and the bowler under the withering onslaught was Stuart Broad. Yuvraj, spurred by comments from Andrew Flintoff before the penultimate over, launched the first ball over cow corner; the second - measured at 111 yards - disappeared over backward square leg; the third and fourth rocketed over extra cover and point; the fifth flew over midwicket, and the sixth six landed in the stands at long-on. Yuvraj’s 12-ball half-century is a record in all forms of international cricket.
