Jasprit Bumrah creates history

by Kolkata Today

India captain Jasprit Bumrah creates a world record for scoring the most runs in an over in a Test match. 35 runs scored off England bowler Stuart Broad’s over including extras.

Bumrah displayed his prowess with the bat by taking 35 from Broad’s final over over in the first innings as India’s tail wagged to help them amass a score of 416 in the fifth and final Test on day two against at Edgbaston.

The India quick hit Broad for two massive sixes (one came from a no ball), four boundaries, a single and was helped with five wides in the record-breaking over.

It meant Broad conceded a total of 35 runs, surpassing the previous record held by West Indies great Brian Lara, Australia’s George Bailey and South Africa’s Keshav Maharaj.

Lara took 28 off one Robin Peterson over back in 2003, while Bailey (2013) and Maharaj (2020) also shared the record.

Bumrah finished unbeaten on 31 – the highest score for any debutant captain batting at No.10 – as Mohammed Siraj eventually holed out to James Anderson.
