Symonds to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, short of a good length and outside the off, cut away in front of point

10.6

Symonds to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, Clout! another one dropped just a touch and Yuvraj pulls viciously. The ball disappears over the ropes and over the stands. That is a mighty blow from Yuvraj who appears in incredible touch. That ball landed on the roof.
