India’s stand-in skipper Jasprit Bumrah went berserk as he hit England’s Stuart Broad all over the park in the first innings of the fifth Test against England. Bumrah smashed 35 runs to Stuart Broad, and created a world record for scoring most runs in an over in the longest format of the game.
After this, many former cricketers reacted on Twitter.
“Kya yeh Yuvi hai ya Bumrah!? 2007 ki yaad dilaa di..” wrote Sachin Tendulkar on Twitter.
“Stuart Broad after facing the assault from Bumrah- 35 in an over.. haha,” tweeted Virender Sehwag.
“You can’t be serious. 35 runs of that over, most of it courtesy Jasprit Bumrah,” wrote Ian Bishop on Twitter.
The next best were from West Indies legend Brian Lara, who smashed left-arm spinner Robin Peterson for 28 runs at Johannesburg in 2003, Australia’s George Bailey, who hit James Anderson for 28 at Perth in 2013, and Keshav Maharaj, who also scored 28 runs off Joe Root at Port Elizabeth in 2020.
Bumrah remained not out at 31 when Team India were bowled out for 416 after impressive knocks from Rishabh Pant (146) and Ravindra Jadeja (104).
Veteran pacer James Anderson from the English team picked up five wickets and was the pick of the bowlers from the England camp.
