Umesh Yadav made 3 big records in his 10-ball innings
Indian fast bowler Umesh Yadav thrilled the audience with his batting on the second day of the Ranchi Test. Umesh scored 31 runs in 10 balls. Out of these 10 balls, Umesh sent 05 straight outside the boundary. The special thing is that Umesh hit this five sixes off the ball of George Linde.
During this time Umesh made three big records, in one of which he equaled the God of cricket Sachin. In the first record, Umesh broke the record of former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming. Umesh became the fastest batsman to score 30 runs in a Test innings. Earlier this was in the record of Stephen, who scored 31 runs from 11 balls.
The second record is that Umesh has become only the second batsman after Sachin Tendulkar to have sent the first two balls of the Test for a six. The third record was Umesh's strike rate. Umesh's strike rate during the innings was 310, the highest by more than 10 balls by any batsman.
Talking of Indian innings, Rohit Sharma's double century, Rahane's century and Jadeja-Yadav's useful innings at the end, India declared the first innings by scoring 497 runs. Subsequently, South Africa ended the game early today due to bad weather after losing two wickets for 9 runs.
