India stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah on Saturday broke the world record for scoring most number of runs in an over in Test cricket. Bumrah smashed 35 runs of an Stuart Broad over in the first innings of the fifth Test vs England at the Edgbaston.
In the process of inflicting a whirlwind carnage over Broad and England, Bumrah surpassed the previous record which was held by Brian Lara, George Bailey and Keshav Maharaj at 28 runs.
Before Bumrah hammered Broad for four fours, two sixes besides picking up a single from the eight-ball over which also included a no-ball and five wides, India were 377/9 with England’s chances of keeping them under 400 looking bright.

Bumrah pulled the first ball from Stuart Broad in the 84th over for a boundary. It was a top-edge that Crawley very nearly got to, but it evaded him and bounced over the rope.
Broad again dug it short and it went high over wicketkeeper Sam Billings’ head for five wides. India got seven runs off the next ball as Bumrah top-edged a pull over third man for a six after Broad overstepped.
Another short ball from Broad was pulled brilliantly by Bumrah over fine leg for six, giving him the world record for scoring most runs in an over of Test cricket — 29.
