Yuvraj Singh scored six sixes in an over against England at Durban on 19.09.07. This is how cricinfo.com described the sixes scored by Yuvraj Singh

8.1 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, that’s out the ground, super shot over cow corner and it just kept going up

The dodgy TV measurement says that’s 111 yards … but as it landed outside the ground how the whatsists do they know? They guess, that’s how.

18.2 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, now that really is sweet, no more than a dismissive flick off his legs, swatting a fly, and the ball arcs deep into the crowd beyond backward square leg

18.3 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, he’s hitting them everywhere, he steps to leg and smashes the ball over extra cover and it keeps on travelling … the fireworks start on top of the scoreboard … they’ve been going off in the middle for some time

18.4 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, Shiver me timbers!: Broad goes round the wicket, bowls a filthy wide full toss and Yuvraj steers it over backward point and it clears the rope again

England have a team meeting. Shuffling deckchairs on the Jolly Roger though …

18.5 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, down on one knee and larruped over midwicket, that one was more nine iron, it went into the night sky and dropped with a thud in the jubilant crowd …

Broad looks quizzical … and miserable. Can he … can Yuvraj do it … he looks like a man who knows he is about to be mauled again …

18.6 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, and he has, Yuvraj leans back and smacks that over wide mid-on … it was the maximum from the moment it left that bat and the crowd were roaring as it flew
