Trent Bridge: Statistical highlights of the second day's play in the second Test between India and England:

# Yuvraj Singh recorded his third fifty against England - his 10th in Tests.

# Yuvraj's 62 is his highest innings outside the subcontinent. Against New Zealand at Napier in March 2009, he had recorded 54 not out off 63 balls.

# Stuart Broad became the first bowler to accomplish a hat-trick against India in Tests. He is the 12th English bowler to achieve the feat in Tests.



# Besides becoming the first bowler to register a hat-trick at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, Broad became the first all-rounder to record a fifty in the first innings followed by a hat-trick in the first innings.

# For the second time in a Test match, Broad has claimed six wickets in an innings apart from registering a fifty -- the first instance being 6/91 and 61 against Australia at Headingley, Leeds in 2009.

# Broad has become the fifth English all-rounder to register a 50-plus apart from producing a five-wicket haul in Tests against India. He has joined Peter Lever, Tony Greig, John Lever and Ian Botham (twice).

# Broad (6/46) recorded his career-best bowling figures in a Test innings -- his second instance of six wickets in an innings.

# Broad became the first English bowler to take six wickets in an innings against India at Trent Bridge.

# Broad has taken five wickets or more in an innings four times -- twice against Australia and once each against West Indies and India.
