India and Records!! Ain't it synonymous??

Did you know:
India holds the record of having maximum number of records in Cricket!!

With legendary players like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Ravi Shastri, Saurav Ganguly ... belonging to India, it is no surprise that India holds maximum number of records in International Cricket. In fact, Sachin Tendulkar has always been envied of holding so many records in the International Cricket. Asking someone Maximum number of runs in any form of International Cricket(excluding Twenty20 coz he opted out of the format) is a no-brainer. Even players like Ajit Agarkar who find it difficult to get a permanent berth in the Indian Cricket Team have had taste of International Records. For those who are unaware, he holds the record for fastest 50 wickets in ODI.

And now today, Yuvraj Singh managed to raise the count further by two. He scored 50 off just 12 balls and hit six 6s in an over. In his innings of 58 runs, he faced just 16 deliveries of which 10(3x4,7x6) went out of the boundary(even out of the ground for that matter), which included six consecutive sixes of Broad's 4th over(19th over if Indian innings). With this he not only surpassed Mascranahes's record of 5 consecutive sixes, he has also equalled the record of 6 sixes in an over in any form of International Cricket, with Herschelle Gibbs.

Watch the exciting over yourself..
