Even after 50 years when Yuvraj Singh’s name will be mentioned, one of the first memories that fans who saw him play live, will have is the six sixes of Stuart Broad. In fact, television and its power will truly ensure that even future generations don’t forget that maverick innings.
However, that wasn’t his only achievement in that match vs England in the inaugural T20 World Cup. He also achieved the milestone of fastest fifty in T20I and is also the fastest fifty in International cricket across formats. Even in franchise cricket, Gayle has equaled that record of making 50 in 12 balls but no one has gone past Yuvi.
Recently, Singh was asked if he thinks anyone could break the record eventually. “Two guys I thought could break the record are Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. KL can do it he has 50 off 14 balls in the IPL but scoring a 50 in international cricket where all are quality bowlers and in IPL where you get two quality bowlers is not the same. But KL and Hardik have the potential,” Yuvraj said in a Youtube interaction.
