One of the finest fast-bowler in world cricket at the moment, Indian captain for 5th and final test match against England, Jasprit Bumrah created a new world record with the bat in the 83rd over of ongoing fifth Test match of the India-England series at Edgbaston Cricket Ground by smashing 29 runs off an over from Stuart Broad. Broad conceded the most expensive over in Test cricket history by conceding 35 runs in the over, 29 of which came from the bat of Bumrah, 5 from wide deliveries and one from a no-ball delivery.
It should be noted that the Broad had previously conceded 36 runs in an over where he was hit for six back to back 6s by Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh in a T20i match at World Cup 2007.
Bumrah broke Brain Lara’s record for scoring the most runs an over in the longest format of the game. Lara had set the record in a West Indies-South Africa Test match in 2003 of Robin Petersen’s over.
