Sports Desk – England pacer Stuart Broad made history by taking 500 wickets in Test cricket on Tuesday. Everyone is congratulating him on this achievement. He is also congratulated by former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh of the Indian team. Yuvraj, who smashed Broad for six consecutive sixes in 2007, took to social media to laud the legendary pacer.

“I’m sure everytime I write something about @StuartBroad8, people relate to him getting hit for 6 sixes! Today I request all my fans to applaud what he has achieved! 500 test wickets is no joke-it takes hard work, dedication & determination. Broady you’re a legend! Hats off,” Yuvraj tweeted.

Broad was only in his second year in international cricket when Yuvraj famously took him apart in a World T20 match in Durban in September 2007.

Broad was dispatched for six sixes in the 19th over of India’s innings as Yuvraj raced to his fifty off just 12 balls, which still remains as the fastest half century in the T20 format. The Punjab batsman was provoked by English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff and it was Broad who had to bear the brunt.
