Form is temporary. Class is permanent.

Yuvraj Singh's fans showed this message with pride as their hero slammed nine sixes through the course of a blitzkrieg of an innings against Delhi Daredevils. Just two days after he smashed 83 off 38 against Rajasthan, the veteran southpaw blasted an unbeaten 68 off just 29 balls in an encore of epic proportions, on Tuesday. His carnage helped Bangalore (186/4) script a 16-run triumph. (Scorecard)

Yuvraj made M Chinnaswamy Stadium his favourite hunting ground when he had blown Rajasthan bowlers to smithereens and also claimed four wickets. It was in a losing cause and he had said he felt the pain. On Tuesday though, he single-handedly transferred all of his pain to the Delhi team - already out of contention of making it to the playoffs. Coming in to bat at No. 5, Yuvraj took charge early after Delhi had removed the 'terrifying trio' of Chris Gayle (22), Virat Kohli (10)and AB de Villiers (33).
