RETURN OF YUVRAJ
Eddie Hemming was not by any yardstick a great spinner of the ball and he does not toss the ball much like his indian ilks, Bedi and Prassana. Yet, when Kapil Dev charged to his ball reaching him in 4 successive occasions to loft them over the ropes enabling India to avoid a follow on, history was written.
On the otherhand, it required tremendous guts and determination to face Bob Willis at his lethal best and hit him for 6 fours in a 7 ball over. that was all what Sandeep Madusudan Patil did in UK.
Javed Miandad's last ball six of Chetan Sharman who was a new ball bowling partner of Kapil dev is part of cricketing legend similarly the six loot of Yuvraj in a 20x 20 cricket world cup match elevated him to cult status of all time hitters like Greenidge, Fredericks, Richards, Collis King, Kapil Dev of yester years.
His exploits with the bat during an English series, prompted the Captain Kevein Peterson to remark that only way he could win the match against India is to hijack Yuvi. that was a great compliment from a great cricketer.
Let this be a new begining of a more attacking and scintillating form of cricket sadly seen now a days with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar playing for records and not for entertainment
