New Delhi: Team India created history by winning the first T20 World Cup in 2007. Dhoni had caught everyone’s attention by winning that World Cup with a young team. During that time, former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh played an important role in India’s victory with his brilliant performance.
In this World Cup, Yuvraj Singh did the feat of hitting 6 sixes in an over. Now Yuvi has made a disclosure about this.
Yuvraj Singh told during a conversation with 22 Yarn Podcast that when he hit six sixes in a single over of Broad in the T20 World Cup, Broad’s father Chris Broad was the match referee in that match.
Yuvraj has revealed that Stuart Broad’s father Chris Broad came to him at the match and said that thank you for almost ending my son’s career. After this, Yuvraj Singh also said that there was nothing personal behind Broad hitting 6 sixes.
Yuvi also spoke about Dhoni’s captaincy
Earlier, Yuvraj Singh had said that he was hoping to become the captain of the 2007 T20 World team, but the selectors had shown confidence in Dhoni, who had entered international cricket only 3 years ago. He said, ‘Maybe the seniors thought they needed a break after playing so much cricket and that’s why nobody took the T20 World Cup seriously. I expected to get the captaincy of India in the T20 World Cup and then it was announced that MS Dhoni would be the captain. Whoever becomes the captain in the team you have to support that man.
Yuvraj did a great job
Even though Team India won the 2007 World Cup under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, players like Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir played an important role in winning it. Yuvraj hit 6 sixes in an over of Stuart Broad against England in World Cup 2007. Not only this, Yuvraj was also the Player of the Tournament in the 2011 50-over World Cup.
