India vs England 2nd ODI: Yuvraj Singh slams first ever 150
Cuttack: Making a comeback, Yuvraj Singh was at his vintage best in the second ODI against England as he notched up his 14th century in 50-over Cricket at Barabati Stadium here on Thursday. He went on completing his first ever 150 plus score in ODIs.
At the end of 43 overs, Yuvraj got out after scoring a brilliant 150 off 126 balls with 21 fours and three sixes. The southpaw scored this magnificent ton after coming in to bat when India was under immense pressure at 22/2. He also surpassed his career best score of 139 runs that he scored at Sydney Cricket Ground against Australia in 2004.
He last scored a hundred for India back in 2011 World Cup against West Indies in Chennai. He had scored 113 runs off 123 balls with 10 fours and 2 sixes.
Earlier, winning the toss, England invited India to bat first and soon got the early advantage by sending the top three batsman (Lokesh Rahul (5),Shikhar Dhawan (11) and Virat Kohli (8)) back to pavilion for just 25 runs in 4.4 overs.
Yuvraj, along with MS Dhoni (100* off 106 balls), has added 256 runs for the 4th wicket and the duo took India up to 281/4 in 43 overs.
