Yuvraj Six of Six.

Yuvraj belted fast bowler Stuart Broad for 36 runs in the 19th over to become the first player to achieve the mark in the shortest form of cricket.

Broad saw his deliveries disappear over the mid-wicket boundary twice, over backward square leg, extra cover, backward point and wide mid-on.

Yuvraj's fireworks boosted India to a total of 218 for four from their 20 overs.

On a record breaking day, he also scored the fastest half century in Twenty20, needing just 12 balls. Yuvraj was eventually dismissed for 58, with Paul Collingwood taking the catch off an Andrew Flintoff delivery. Yuvraj hit three fours and seven sixes during his entertaining knock.

The 25-year-old became the fourth man to complete the feat at elite level.

ndia's Ravi Shastri and West Indian Garfield Sobers had achieved the record in first class cricket, while South African Herschelle Gibbs reached the landmark at the 50-over World Cup earlier this year.

18.1 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, that's out the ground, super shot over cow corner and it just kept going up.

18.2 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, now that really is sweet, no more than a dismissive flick off his legs, swatting a fly, and the ball arcs deep into the crowd beyond backward square leg. The dodgy TV measurement says that's 111 yards but as it landed outside the ground how do they know? They guess that's how.

18.3 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, he's hitting them everywhere, he steps to leg and smashes the ball over extra cover and it keeps on traveling. The fireworks start on top of the scoreboard and they've been going off in the middle for some time.

18.4 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, Shiver me timbers! Broad goes round the wicket, bowls a filthy wide full toss and Yuvraj steers it over backward point and it clears the rope again.
18.5 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, down on one knee and larruped over midwicket, that one was more nine iron, it went into the night sky and dropped with a thud in the jubilant crowd. England have a team meeting.
Broad looks quizzical and miserable. Can he, can Yuvraj do it. Broad looks like a man who knows he is about to be mauled again.

18.6 Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, and he has, Yuvraj leans back and smacks that over wide mid-on. It was the maximum from the moment it left that bat and the crowd was roaring as it flew.

SEZ victims : An appeal by hapless victims of state tyranny to all concerned citizens of India

Thousands of acres of fertile agricultural lands are being acquired in the name of SEZ (Special economic zone)s all over India [except Bihar]. Farmers are becoming hapless victims of state tyranny. Inspite of repeated statements by various central & state ministers at various times that fertile agricultural land will not be acquired for industrial [SEZ] purposes; the bureaucrats (of KIADB) are practicing just the opposite.
Fertile land with rich agricultural and horticultural produce that sustains and enriches the lives of thousands of villagers is now being termed dry and waste land to aid the acquisition process. How can land that gets an average annual rainfall of almost 4000 mm be “dry land” in Mangalore?? Clearly the truth is being hidden; behind fabricated statistics, to aid KIADB’s effort to alienate farmers’ lands for the MRPL-ONGC, MSEZ projects.

We, the villagers of the 2035.31 acres of land notified for acquisition near Mangalore (of Kuthethoor, Permude, Delanthabettu and Thenka Yekkaru villages) who are affected by the MSEZ and its PCPIR (petrochemical complex) are mostly farmers who know no other skill than agriculture, dairy farming, poultry, horticulture and jasmine cultivation and related duties. We do not wish to lose our homes and livelihood at any cost.

Clearly, more of us in our 4 villages will lose employment and (our roots) than any employment or progress that an SEZ alienated from us and our lifestyles can bring.

What are the fall outs of M SEZ for common citizens?

The petrochemical complexes would store thousands of tons of carcinogenic [cancer causing] chemicals like benzene, cause health problems like asthma, cancer etc. The petrochemical complexes and subsidiaries would occupy an area of 74,131 acres of land and displace nearly one and a half lakh people .Negligible amount of their produce would be for domestic use, but our govt. would earn lots in foreign exchange in addition to the environment pollution, water shortage, depletion of greenery, global warming and more than anything else a ticking time bomb so close [8-10 kms] to Mangalore city (that comes under grade 3 earthquake zone).

Another Bhopal gas tragedy in the making!!! If you are a citizen concerned about the society, kindly render your support to us by mailing your response to the concerned authorities and asking them to STOP the additional 2,035.51 acres land acquisition process in the aforesaid villages for MSEZ by KAIDB at the earliest.

If you feel for the SEZ victims then please send your responses to:
