India Legends all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has continued his six-hitting spree in the Road Safety World Series.

In the semi-finals against West Indies Legends on Wednesday, Yuvraj Singh hammered leg-spinner Mahendra Nagamootoo for four maximums in the 19th over of the Indian innings.

After India Legends went sent into bat by West Indies, Yuvraj Singh went berserk as the innings drew to a close. The first ball of the 19th over was a short one, which the left-hander dispatched over the deep square-leg fence.

The next one was another short one and received a similar treatment, this time Yuvraj Singh clearing square-leg. The left-hander made it three in three when he blasted a full-length delivery on off-stump over long-on.

The fourth six of the over came off a good-length delivery on the middle stump. Yuvraj Singh jabbed the ball over long-on to take India Legends past 200.

The 39-year smashed two more sixes in the last over bowled by Sulieman Benn as India Legends posted a mammoth total of 218 for 3.

Yuvraj Singh was batting on ten off 9 at the end of the 18th over; he ended up unbeaten on 49 off 20.

Earlier, Yuvraj Singh had hammered four consecutive sixes in an over from Zander de Bruyn in the match against South Africa Legends. He remained unbeaten on 52 off 22 in that game.
