Yuvraj had hit six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad in a do or die match against England at Durban. In the process, he reached the fastest fifty ever in a Twenty20 game, off just 12 balls, which was also the fastest in any form of international cricket.Later Yuvraj Singh unleashed an assault on the Australian bowlers, powering India to victory in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup. Yuvraj finished with 70 off 30 balls, with 5 fours and 5 sixes, helping India post a target of 188, which Australia failed to chase down and got knocked out.advertisementIndia’s journey to the World T20 title was quite like a fairytale.
