The magic over… What a knock by yuvi.

End of over 19 (36 runs) – India 207/3 (RR: 10.89)

Yuvraj Singh 50* (12b 3×4 6×6) SCJ Broad 4-0-60-0
MS Dhoni 7* (6b) A Flintoff 3-0-22-0
Unsurprisingly, that’s also the fastest Twenty20 fifty – it came up from 12 balls. Three fours, six sixes. More to the point, he’s the first batsman to hit six sixes in Twenty20, and the fourth in senior cricket. Garry Sobers and Ravi Shastri did it in first-class matches, Herschelle Gibbs in the World Cup and now Yuvraj.
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
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 …
18.5 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 …
England have a team meeting. Shuffling deckchairs on the Jolly Roger though …
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
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
18.2 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
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.
18.1 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, that’s out the ground, super shot over cow corner and it just kept going up
