New Delhi, Sep 19: Cricket fans are feeling nostalgic over Twitter and hailing senior India batsman Yuvraj Singh's 'historic' explosive innings against England during ICC World T20 2007.

Match Scorecard

On this day (September 19) in 2007, Yuvraj hammered six incredible shots out of the boundary at Durbam and became the first batsman to smash six sixes in an over in the shorter format of the game. It was fourth such ocassion in the history of the game.

With the help of his powerful hittings, the stylish left-arm-batter also smashed fifty in just 12 balls, which is still a world record. 

Yuvi, he's fondly called by teammates, targetted England's lead pacer Stuart Broad in the 19th over of the game after an on-field verbal spat with Andrew Flintoff.

What makes this innings even more special, is that India went on to lift the inaugural World T20 trophy after defeating arch-rivals Pakistan in the historic final. Yuvi played a vital role for the side all through the tournament. 

It was the heroics of Yuvraj that helped a young Indian side under the leadership of debutant captain MS Dhoni lift a world cup for India after a gap of 24 years.

Here is how Twitterati hailed Yuvraj's explosive 'six sixes':
