mesh Yadav follows Sachin Tendulkar, Umesh Yadav is not entirely known for his batting skills,
But on Day 2 of the third Search conflict between India and South Africa, the fast bowler inspired everyone with his six-hitting skills. Umesh Yadav (31) hit five sixes, all off-spinner George Linde’s bowling, in a 10-ball blitz before falling to the hurt left-arm spinner who stated figures of 4-133. It was his most crucial score in Test cricket and thanks to his excellent batting,
He became the 3rd batsman ever to score two sixes off the first two balls he faced. Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and late West Indies batsman Foffie Williams are the two other batsmen.
He also became the most active player in Test history to score 30+ runs. He excelled Stephen Fleming, who had struck 31* runs in 11 balls against South Africa in 2004. Abdur Razzak’s 17 balls 43 (vs Zimbabwe in 2011), West Indies’ Nam McLean’s 12-ball 31 (vs South Africa in 1998), and Australia’s WP Howell’s 15-ball 35 make the top 5. Umesh also posted a strike rate of 310 with the bat which is the highest strike rate in a 10+ ball inning in Tests.
