India’s Yuvraj Singh Smashes The Longest Six Of Twenty20 World Cup – Flicks Australia’s Brett Lee For A 119m Hit At Durban
India’s Twenty20 master blaster Yuvraj Singh scored the second fastest fifty in this format, equalling Bangladesh’s Mohammad Ashraful to reach the milestone in 20 balls during the Durban semi-final today.
Yuvraj ended up smashing 70 off 30 balls and hammered five sixes and five fours. However, the innings also saw Yuvraj scoring the longest six of the tournament, which travelled 119m and that too of the bowling of the dreaded Brett Lee.
This is Yuvraj’s back to back fifty in this tournament as his previous innings of 16-ball 58 against England at the same venue, produced the fastest 50 in Twenty20, which came off just 12 balls.
