He hit the first balls towards square leg, deep mid-wicket and straight down the ground. The next ball ended over the side screen followed by another dot.

In the post-match conference, Yuvraj said, “I was looking to hit the fifth consecutive six because I remember that there was one dot ball in the over. And I was waiting for the bowler to bowl in my areas. So after the fourth six, I was looking for the fifth six but there were also two overs to go so I decided to rotate the strike and bat till the end to have a big score. The wicket was really good and South Africa had won the last game. So I wanted to bat till the end and I am happy to do that.”
Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar slammed 65 runs off 42 deliveries, including three boundaries and six fours. Virender Sehwag also added 35 runs off 17 balls to provide the team with a strong start. Yusuf Pathan (37) and Mohammad Kaif (27) also contributed to the team’s total.
With 12 runs victory, India have entered the final of the Road Safety World Series 2021. They will either face Sri Lanka Legends or South Africa Legends. The final will played on Sunday (March 21).
