After the successful superhero test with wrestling superstar The Great Khali, Minnal Murali is facing cricketer Yuvraj Singh. If the Great Khali had tested Murali’s strength, the cricketer gave Murali tasks that proved his lightning speed. Minnal Murali, who wants to become an American superhero, is taking part in a series of tests and tasks to prove his incredible power. In this video, Yuvraj gives Murali the task of hitting sixes in all the six balls of an over. However, the catch is that he has to bowl, bat and retrieve the balls all by himself. The massive sixes that Murali hit flew to various parts of the country including Mumbai and Jaipur. The last ‘six’ was so powerful and fast that it flew all the way to Abu Dhabi.
