‘Take a bow Stuart Broad’: Yuvraj Singh congratulates ‘a real legend’ | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former India batter Yuvraj Singh extended his warm wishes to England pacer Stuart Broad, who made a surprise announcement of retiring from Test cricket. The ongoing fifth Ashes Test will be Broad’s last match of his career.

Yuvraj, who smashed Broad for six sixes in an over in the 2007 T20 World Cup India-England clash at Durban, took to Twitter to wish good luck for his next leg of life.
“Take a bow @StuartBroad8. Congratulations on an incredible Test career ???? one of the finest and most feared red ball bowlers, and a real legend! Your journey and determination have been super inspiring. Good luck for the next leg Broady!”, Yuvraj tweeted.

Broad also acknowledged in the press conference how he evolved after those six sixes by Yuvraj.
“Yeah, it was obviously a pretty tough day. What would I have been: 21, 22? [22] I learnt loads. I pretty much based a whole mental routine through that experience knowing that I was left very short as an international performer in that moment. I’d rushed my preparation. I didn’t have any sort of pre-ball routine. I didn’t have any focus, particularly, and I started building my ‘warrior mode’ that I call it after that experience.”
On September 19, 2007, Yuvraj, after having a few words with Andrew Flintoff, unleashed his beast mode and smashed Broad all over the place for six consecutive sixes in the penultimate over of the Indian innings, reaching his fifty off just 12 balls.
“Ultimately, of course, I wish that didn’t happen. I think what really helped me was it was a dead rubber, so it didn’t feel like I’d knocked us out of the World Cup or something. But I think it steeled me up to make me the competitor I am to this day and has driven me forward a huge amount,” Broad added.
