Turning the clock back, left-handed middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh dazzled in the second ODI in Cuttack to bring up his 14th ODI century helping India finish with 381/6 in the second One-Day International against England here.
Not only was this his best score in his ODI career so far, it was also the flamboyant batsman’s first ton since the 2011 World Cup.
Players like Sachin Tendulkar came out in praise of Yuvraj Singh for his exceptional innings.
Yuvraj's century was a throwback to the 2008 series against England where he scored back-to-back hundreds in Rajkot and Indore in big wins for India.
Returning to the side after a three-year hiatus, the 35-year-old left-hander consumed 98 balls to bring up his career's 14th ODI ton and also eclipsed his own record of 138 to become the highest run-getter at this ground.
He also became the first Indian player to score a 150 against England in ODIs.
Here's how Twitter reacted to Yuvraj’s achievement:
