Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh set a World Cup record by hitting six consecutive sixes in the 2007 T20 World Cup against England. In Stuart Broad's over, Yuvi hit six sixes off six consecutive balls. Due to the record made in T20 World Cup, Yuvi's name has been recorded in the pages of history.
Yuvraj has revealed that his bat was questioned after setting this historical record. While talking on sports, Yuvi recalled that moment of the 2007 T20 World Cup and also said that people had no doubt on this record but doubts.
Yuvraj said that former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist had raised doubts after his 70-run knock of 30 balls in the semi-final against Australia.
Yuvraj said that at that time the coach of the Australian team came to me and asked if there was any special girl behind my bat and also asked if it was allowed to be used. Is it observed by the match referee. I asked him Go and get it inspected. Even Gilchrist asked who makes your bat.
Yuvi explained how his bat had reached the referee. After making a record of sixes against England, the match referee checked my bat. But to be honest, that bat is really very special for me. Yuvraj said that bat and the 2011 World Cup bat are very special to me.
