Yuvraj Singh -- a name that was feared by many bowlers across the world -- is geaing up to set the stage on fire when India tour Australia in next month. The aggressive left-hander has been named in the T20 squad, which will play three matches against the Aussies.
Yuvraj is confident of grabbing the opportunity and with it locking his place in the India World T20 squad, after the selectors recalled the batsman following some good shows with the bat in the domestic season.
It is indeed a great opportunity for the seasoned campaigner. If he actually manages to impress Down Under during the T20 series, it will give India a major boost ahead of the ICC World T20 2016.
Yuvraj Singh once single-handedly destroyed many bowling lineups around the world. He was also an instrumental batsman in the ICC World T20 2007, where he sent the ball into the orbit quite often.
Here is a look at five special innings from Yuvraj in the recent past.
India vs England 2007: No cricket fan can forget that night when Yuvraj smashed six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad. Yuvraj had an on-field altercation with Andrew Flintoff and that fired him up with the man from Punjab taking his anger out on Broad.
India vs Australia 2007: Riding on the back of an oustanding win over England in the ICC World T20 2007, India faced Australia in the semifinal of the tournament. Yuvraj amassed 70 runs from just 30 balls in this match to power India to the final.
India vs Australia 2013: Yuvraj Singh made a comeback into the Indian squad after nine months. Yuvraj scored 77 runs from just 35 balls in the 1st T20 match in Rajkot as India chased down a total of 202 runs in 20 overs.
India vs New Zealand 2009: India were touring New Zealand and Yuvraj struck gold again in the first T20 match of the series at Wellington. While other Indian batsmen struggled against the Kiwi bowlers Yuvraj slammed a 34-ball 50.
India vs Pakistan 2012: Yuvraj came out to bat when India were three wickets down in the 14th over. They needed someone who could take on the likes of Saeed Ajmal and Sohail Tanvir. Unsurprisingly, Yuvi did not disappoint his fans.
