Yuvraj Singh, who hit a 24-ball 42 runs to guide his IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad to a seven-wicket win against Kings XI Punjab on Sunday, interacted with a group of children at the PCA stadium after the match.
When a young kid asked Yuvraj if he will again hit those six sixes, the 34-year-old who hails from Chandigarh, said, "You pray, I will hit six sixes again."
The left-handed batsman, however, said he doesn't know how he hit those six sixes. "Many years have passed since then."
Yuvraj's six sixes in an over remains one of the most cherished moments in Indian cricket, and these came off England's Stuart Broad in a Twenty20 World Cup match in 2007 in South Africa.
One of the cancer survivors, an eight-year-old boy, was diagnosed with cancer when he was just 18 months old. Now in Class 4, the boy said that players like Yuvraj are a great inspiration for him.
"I love cricket and seeing Yuvi and Suresh Raina in action gives me immense joy," he said.
Yuvraj was Player Of The Tournament in the 2011 World Cup, the same year when he was diagnosed with the dreaded disease, which he later fought bravely and successfully.
"Think of it as a blessing in disguise that you have an opportunity to live again," Yuvraj advised the children.
