In 2007’s ICC World T20 Super 8 match, he hit six sixes off Stuart Broad’s over – a record that had never before been held in T20 cricket and certainly never existed between two Test playing nations. Yuvraj is also one of the finest fielders in the Indian cricket team.
Yuvraj’s weapon of choice is the PUMA Pulse 5000. Made of English willow, this bat has re-weighed balance & control that bolsters its thickness. The extended thick edges & fuller spine enlarges the sweet spot of the blade, providing all round power & control – perfect for those massive sixes. Leading edges improves the bats durability & the new tapered toe enhances pitch contact.
Yuvraj quelled all speculation about his fitness when he returned to perform admirably for India in the 2012 T20 World Cup. If his recent performance in the India – England series is anything to go by, his fans can expect to be treated to a lot more of his aggressive batting in the coming days.
