India's tailender Jasprit Bumrah destructively destroyed hosts veteran pacer, Stuart Broad, smashing 35 runs in the 84th over of the first inning of India vs England rescheduled fifth Test match. The unforgettable over for Bumrah was bowled on Day 2 of the game and trends on social media under the tags Jasprit Bumrah and 35 runs.
Seems like Indians have developed some sort of annoyances with Broad as Yuvraj Singh's six consecutive sixes to him in the 2007 T20 World Cup is still an unbroken record. This time, Bumrah took courage to exploit and further frustrate the bowler with four fours, two sixes one of which came off a no-ball, five wides, and a single of the last ball.
India did not have a good start as they lost five early wickets. The score was paced up by wicketkeeping batter Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to close the first inning on 416, falling short on wickets. 416 holds special contributions from Bumrah who made the day special, and the event forever memorable registering a record of smashing the Most runs in an over in Test Cricket.
The feat was previously held by West Indies' Brian Lara, who is now second to the record, scored 28 runs in an over to South African bowler Robin Peterson. Moreover, the record is jointly held by Australian cricketer George Bailey and South Africa's Keshav Maharaj. Pakistan's Shahid Afridi is now fifth on the list of having the Most runs in an over in Test Cricket as he banged 27 to Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh during the World Cup 2007.
Have a look at how cricket Majesties define the special treatment:
