Yuvraj shines as India beat Aussies in T20

2013-10-11 00:00

YUVRAJ Singh blasted an unbeaten 77 as India secured a six-wicket victory over Australia in the one-off Twenty20 international at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot, yesterday.

Chasing 202 to win, India made a good start and overcame the early loss of Rohit Sharma to bring up the team’s 50 in the fifth over.

The departure of Suresh Raina for 19 and Shikhar Dhawan (32) did not temper their intent and, on his return to international cricket after 11 months, Yuvraj Singh combined with captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (24 not out) for 102 for the fifth wicket off only 51 deliveries to achieve the win with two deliveries to spare.

Man-of-the-Match Yuvraj faced only 35 balls and hit eight fours and five maximums.
