Cricket Viral Video: Yuvraj Singh is one of the best all-rounders our country has seen. He is also regarded as one of the best whiteball players to ever exist. But even the best players are sometimes really unlucky.
And in a 2009 ODI match against Australia, Yuvraj faced one of the unluckiest moments ever in cricket history. The moment that resulted in him losing his wicket in the most bizarre fashion that he might never forget.
The left-handed batsman retired from International cricket back in 2019, but this dismissal might still haunt him. Or he might have forgotten about it and laughed at the bizarre situation that led to this dismissal.
Cricket Viral Video: Unluckiest Dismissal
In a 2009 ODI match against Australia in Guwahati, India was struggling as they were 23/3 and Doug Bollinger was in the form of his life. And everyone was looking at Yuvraj Singh to stabilize the innings and build it from there.
But fate wanted something else as Yuvraj missed a full-length delivery by Bollinger. The ball hit his pad and bounced over his shoulder. At this point, the batsman had no idea where the ball was.
Yuvi tried to go back into the crease and somehow the ball hit the willow of his bat and then struck the stumps. The confusion took over as no one knew what just happened including Yuvi himself. But in the end, he had to go to the pavilion after losing his wicket in such a bizarre fashion.
A Lost Series
This was the penultimate match in the 7-match series and India was really behind at this point. Dhoni somehow managed to help India reach a respectable total of 170 but Australia chased it comfortably and won the series 4-2 as well.
