Yuvraj Singh calls ‘old nemesis’ Stuart Broad a legend after historic achievement

Yuvraj Singh, who is famously remembered for hitting six maximums off Stuart Broad in an over during 2007 T20 World Cup quarter-final has now spoken out in favour of his nemesis.  The memory of a fired-up Yuvraj against a rising sensation Stuart Broad is still etched in the memory of every cricket fan. 

However, after Stuart Broad reached the incredible landmark of taking 500 Test wickets, the former India all-rounder took to social media to laud his efforts and requested his fans to not mention the incident from the India-England tie from 13 years ago.

“I’m sure everytime I write something about Stuart Broad, people relate to him getting hit for six sixes! But today I request all my fans not to mention it but to applaud what this man has achieved!” Yuvraj Singh wrote in a post he shared on Twitter and Instagram.

“500 test wickets is no joke – it takes years of hard work, dedication and determination. How you have always fought and come victorious over your setbacks, Broady my friend you are a legend! Hats off,” Yuvraj added.

Broad on Tuesday became only the seventh bowler to reach the landmark figure, when he dismissed West Indies opener, Kraigg Brathwaite, on the last day of the third and final Test of the series.

Players from across the world took to social media to congratulate the veteran pacer as he entered the elite 500-club.
