Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah scored 35 runs with 6 balls on Day 2 of the fifth Test between India and England. Meanwhile, Stuart Broad was responsible for the over that caused India to lead with more than 400 runs in total, which became the most expensive over in the history of the Test category. The highest recorded runs in an over were 28 and it happened 19 years ago.
For Broad, this incident is devastating as he now holds the record of conceding most runs in two categories: Test and T20I. In 2007, the pacer conceded 36 runs with six sixes to India’s Yuvraj Singh in a T20I match.
On Day 2, Broad made a decision to deliver short-length bowls. However, Bumrah caught on this tactic and managed to hit the ball every single time. He was even able to send the ball over the boundary rope.
After hearing the news, cricket fans from all around the world took to Twitter to express their delight at Bumrah's accomplishment. The Indian cricket team also held a mini-celebration, led by head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Virat Kohli.
