This famous incident happened in 2007 at the 1st T20 World Cup match against England. Yuvraj and Dhoni were batting as India was setting the target. Stuart Broad, the English pacer, came to bowl the 19th over of Indian Innings. Andrew Flintoff, English All-rounder, said something to Yuvraj, which must have upset the Punjabi Batsmen. What happened next is history.

MS Dhoni standing in the other end, was watching those sixes with his cool smile on his face. That moment gave an invaluable start to MS Dhoni’s era of Indian cricket. Recently Dhoni thanked Yuvi for this particular moment in his style of words.
