ENG vs IND: Jasprit Bumrah Slams 35 Off Stuart Broad, Most Expensive Over Ever In Test Cricket

Written by Vishwas Gupta

India captain Jasprit Bumrah came into his own as he slammed Stuart Broad for 35 runs, most expensive over ever in the history of Test cricket. It all began in the 83rd over with India’s score reading 377/9. No one saw this coming but Bumrah who went on a rampage against Broad, who was also saw a similar situation in 2007 against Yuvraj Singh. The way Bumrah batted, it certainly transported fans back in time when the England bowler was looking desperate for some respite from an onslaught.

It all began in the 83rd over and Bunrah started off by slamming the bowler towards fine leg where the fielder goofed up and the ball went onto cross the boundary. The next ball was bouncer which was nonchalantly pulled away by the batter for a six. Bumrah then hit him for a couple of boundaries. Moreover, he then slammed him for a boundary, a six before taking a quick single which took the tally to 35 runs in an over. Highest ever in history of Test cricket.

Ravindra Jadeja got a fantastic third Test hundred while captain Jasprit Bumrah slammed a whirlwind, unbeaten 16-ball 31, including hitting Stuart Broad for a record 35-run over, to lift India to 416 all out in 84.5 overs on day two of the rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston on Saturday.
