Playing only his second ODI since 2013, Yuvraj Singh got a career-best score of 150, his first hundred in international cricket since the 2011 World Cup and the first since his recovery from a rare form of germ cell cancer in 2012.

Yuvraj's making us believe in fairytales. Never give up. Well played, Yuvraj 'Dhamakedaar' Singh. #IndvEng— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) January 19, 2017
Giving Yuvraj company was MS Dhoni, who also scored a hundred. The two put on 256 in 38.2 overs after India had been reduced to 25 for 3.
Nostalgic to watch this partnership of Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni again. The 2011 winning moment partnership.#INDvENG— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 19, 2017
Dhoni hit six sixes in his innings, becoming the fifth to reach 200 sixes - the 200th was a massive hit over the long-on boundary.
