New Delhi: The inaugural edition of the tournament was played in South Africa amid clouds of skepticism. After all, the BCCI, the world's richest (and most powerful) board had been vehement in its criticism of cricket's shortest format.
It even sent a young Team India, led by now soon-to-have-a-biopic-after-me MS Dhoni.
The tournament as a whole had several iconic moments.
How can you forget the India-Pakistan bowl out or minnows Zimbabwe beating world champions Australia and, of course, that fatal scoop by Misbah.
But if there is one thing that fans remember the most from that tournament is Yuvraj Singh smoking England's Stuart Broad for 6 sixes in an over.
Yes, 9 years ago on this date, Andrew Flintoff committed the cardinal sin of firing up Yuvi, and the rest is history!
So, 'Yuviholics', remember Piers Morgan trolling India? Today is the day you can hit back.
