Yuvraj Singh names two batsmen who can score fastest fifty in T20Is


India’s former world cup winning batting all-rounder in Yuvraj Singh has come up with 2 names who he thinks can break the record of fastest half century in a T20 game which is currently held by the man himself.

It was the inaugural edition of the T20I world cup in the year 2007 when the southpaw decimated the English attack to achieve a historic 50 in just 12 deliveries. After all, who could forget the 36 runs he gathered by sending the ball over the boundary line for 6 consecutive times in an over bowled by Stuart Broad.

Yuvraj backs KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya to break his record

India are currently blessed with deadly stroke makers and Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are definitely one of them. Both these players have the ability to take down any form of bowling on a given day and that is why they are the integral part of the Indian limited overs set up at the moment.

The elegant left handed batsman said that he believes in KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya to break the fastest 50 record barrier held by him. He also remembered KL Rahul’s 14 ball 50 in the 2018 edition of the IPL against Delhi Daredevils during his interview.

Two guys I thought could break the record are Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. KL can do it he has 50 off 14 balls in the IPL but scoring a 50 in international cricket where all are quality bowlers and in IPL where you get two quality bowlers is not the same. But KL and Hardik have the potential

Yuvraj fails to find the logic in the selection of Vijay Shankar for the 2019 world cup

Yuvraj Singh admitted that he was shocked to see the selection of Vijay Shankar over the experienced Ambati Rayudu for a crucial tournament like world cup and also urged people to question these decisions made by the selectors.

The selection during the 2019 World Cup was shocking. You need people to question those decisions when players who have played 5 ODIs are playing in the middle order. Can the current selectors question these decisions when they themselves have played only 5 ODIs?
