Yuvraj’s record equals

Hit six sixes straight
The world record of hitting six sixes off six balls in T20 International cricket is now jointly named by Yuvraj Singh and Kieron Pollard. Kieron Pollard hit all six sixes straight. Pollard has equaled this record 14 years after Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes in T20 International.
The third player to do so in international cricket
