A day before India take on Bangladesh in the second semi-final of ICC Champions Trophy, swashbuckling left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh uploaded a special video showcasing his ‘superpowers’ at the Oval Cricket Ground.

In the video that lasts 24-seconds, Yuvraj Singh approaches an automated door, which opens and closes on its own, but the all-rounder gestures with his hands in a manner as if his magical powers were the reason of its movement.

Yuvraj has scored 83 runs in the competition so far and plays a vital role in the team’s middle-order. He’s also a handy part-time bowler but being in the wrong side of 30s, he’s slowly reduced bowling long spells. He broke into the limelight as a young cricketer who was prolific on the field and could virtually aim at the stumps at will and has been a fan-favourite since. He was also adjudged as the player-of-the-tournament back in the 2011 World Cup when India beat Sri Lanka by six wickets to lift the trophy after 28 years.
