Yuvraj Singh

India International Cricket Team PlayerYuvraj Singh (born 12 December 1981 in Chandigarh, India) is the son of former Indian fast bowler and Punjabi movie star Yograj Singh. He has been a member of the Indian cricket team since 2000 (ODIs) and played his first Test match in 2003. He is the current vice captain of the ODI team. At the 2007 World Twenty20 he hit six sixes in an over against England's Stuart Broad - a feat only performed three times previously in any form of senior cricket, and never previously in an international match between two Test cricket nations.
Also known as Yuvi, he is primarily a left-handed batsman but can bowl part-time left-arm orthodox spin. He is regarded as being a better player of fast bowling than spin bowling, and cites the Indian Oil Cup 2005 as a turning point in his career. He is one of the better fielders in the Indian team, fielding primarily at point, with a good aim at the stumps.

he victory gave India a 4-1 one-day series triumph, after the hosts had won the test series.

6-sixes in an over, fastest international 50 for Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh Yuvraj Singh became the first player in Twenty20 history to hit six sixes in an over in India's match against England.
The astonishing barrage from Yuvraj, 25, helped him reach his half-century off just 12 balls. The lefthander hit the first delivery from England bowler Stuart Broad out of the Kingsmead stadium, and followed with five more sixes in the Super Eight match of the World Twenty20 tournament. Sir Gary Sobers was the first to hit six sixes in an over in first-class cricket, followed by Ravi Shastri, while Herschelle Gibbs managed it in a one-day international.
Yuvraj's 12-ball 50 is also the fastest in any form of international cricket. The previous quickest one-day fifty belonged to Sanath Jayasuriya, in 17 balls for Sri Lanka against Pakistan in 1996. Record for the fastest 100 is held by Shahid Afridi, who needed only 37 balls against Sri Lanka on his first ever innings.
1968 Garfield Sobers, of Nottinghamshire and West Indies, hit Malcolm Nash, the Glamorgan left-arm bowler, for 36 in an over in Swansea. See video of Sir Gary Sober's Six 6s
1985 Ravi Shastri, playing for Bombay, matched the achievement in a Ranji Trophy match. The India opening batsman hit Tilak Raj, a slow left-arm Baroda bowler, out of the ground six times.
2007 Herschelle Gibbs won $1 million for charity when he took on Daan van Bunge of Netherlands, the leg spinner, in the 30th over of South Africas World Cup match.
