On Thursday, Yuvraj shared a throwback video of his Indian Premier League (IPL) days wherein he could be seen dispatching the ball over covers for a handsome six.
"This has to be one of my favourite shots in my career I have played ! A very difficult shot to hit for a six over covers to a fast bowler," the World Cup-winning all-rounder captioned the post.
In the video, Yuvraj, while playing for SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), can be seen hitting Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) pacer Chris Woakes for a six over the covers boundary at Eden Gardens.
Chasing KKR's 172/6, SRH could manage only 155/6 to lose the 14th match of the IPL 2017 by 17 runs. Yuvraj scored 26 off 16 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes in the match.
Yuvraj retired from international cricket in 2019 after representing India in 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is. He was part of the India squad which won the 2007 World T20 as well as the 2011 50-over World Cup.
In IPL, he represented the likes of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Delhi Capitals (DC), SunRisers and Mumbai Indians (MI) during his 132-match career.
He played his last IPL game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Wankhede Stadium on April 3, 2019.
