During his innings with the bat, Umesh Yadav hit 31 runs in just 10 balls and smashed 5 sixes during the time. Yadav went on to break a record for the highest strike rate in an innings in Tests held by former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming for 14 years. Fleming had scored 31 runs in 11 balls in 2004 in a Test against South Africa.
