Jasprit Bumrah Slams 35 Runs In Stuart Broad’s Over, Makes World Record, Twitter Goes Crazy

The Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah is literally on fire in the fifth rescheduled test match against England which is being played at Edgbaston. The stand-in skipper not only played a quick innings of 31 runs in the first innings of the Indian team but he has dismissed both the England openers – Alex Lees (6) and Zak Crawley (9). Presently, the match has been stopped due to rain and the England score card reads 31/2 as of now with Ollie Pope (6) and Joe Root (2) on the crease.

This test is quite special for Jasprit Bumrah as this is the first time that he is leading the Indian side and it won’t be wrong to say that captaincy had a great effect on his batting. Earlier the hosts won the toss and put the Indians to bat first; the visitors struggled as they lost wickets regularly until Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja took to the crease and stabilized the Indian innings. While Rishabh Pant scored a quick hundred – 146 runs in 111 balls, Jadeja played a patient innings of 104 runs in 194 balls and by the time Jadeja got out, the Indian team’s score was 375/9. Everybody thought that it was just a matter of few balls that India would get all out but the skipper Jasprit Bumrah had a different plan in his mind as he went on score 31 of 16 deliveries and a total of 35 runs were scored in Stuart Board’s over.

Stuart Broad must be very disappointed as one more unwanted record got registered in his name. Earlier in the 2007 T20 World Cup, Yuvraj Singh scored 36 runs (6 sixes) of Broad’s one over because of which the record of scoring the most runs in one over in T20Is got registered in Broad’s name and now the record of scoring most runs in an over in test matches also got registered in his name.

Twitterati got ablaze with reactions in praise of Jasprit Bumrah after he made his team cross the 400 mark:

As of now, India is leading in the series by 2-1 and if it keeps on playing in this manner, it will certainly win the series by 3-1. What do you say?
