Bangla Hunt Desk: That T20 World Cup, that match against England. Which is still remembered by millions of Indian cricket fans. In that match between England and India, Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was angered by England's Andrew Flintop. Then Yuvraj Singh turned that anger into fire. England fast bowler Steward Broad chose to take revenge. In his next over, Yuvraj Singh made history by hitting six sixes off six balls in that over. That history is still intact today.

That match of the T20 World Cup was on 19th September 2013. India and England met in that match in Durban exactly seven years ago today. India won the toss and elected to bat first. In that match, India's two openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir got off to a great start.

Yuvraj Singh entered the crease in the 14th over of that match. Mahendra Singh Dhoni was batting with Yubi at that time. Then all of a sudden England cricketer Andrew Flintop tried to tease Yuvraj Singh with a gesture and Stuart Broad came to bowl in his next over. Yubi hit six sixes off six balls in Broad's over. The entire England cricket team, including Broad, watched the young batsman bat in that devastating mood. None of them understood exactly where the ball could be stopped. To them the whole thing was like a dream. In that match, Yuvraj hit a half-century off just 12 balls, which is still intact in the history of T20 cricket.
