When you hear the word “Najafgarh,” what is the first thing that comes to mind? The obvious response is Virender Sehwag. The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ is regarded as one of the country’s best batsmen. And when you say “six sixes in an over,” what is the first word that comes to mind? Obviously, Yuvraj Singh’s exploits against Stuart Broad would be the most popular response.
But several people are unaware that ‘Najafgarh’ and ‘six sixes in an over’ have a correlation. Lalit Yadav, a young all-rounder from Sehwag’s hometown, has done to Wide what Yuvraj Singh did to him. He has, in reality, exceeded Singh, having accomplished the feat twice. About the fact that few people have heard of him, he is eager to become a household name now that he has been signed by the Delhi Capitals.
