Stuart Broad, who took more than 550 wickets in Test cricket, was hit by the number 10 batsman Jasprit Bumrah in a way that no one could have imagined.
When there is talk of banging batting in the discussions of cricket, then many legends will be named in it, one of which will definitely be Yuvraj Singh. The former Indian all-rounder made many bowlers smoke with his explosive batting. England’s star fast bowler Stuart Broad can be asked about this. Now the name of such an unwanted Indian player will also be included in this discussion, from whom no one would have ever expected to make a splash with the bat and this can be talked about once again to Stuart Broad. After 15 years, this England pacer was again badly washed by an Indian batsman. Just this time this batsman is not a batting stalwart, but a bowling superstar. Name is- Jasprit Bumrah.
Yuvraj rained 15 years ago
About 15 years ago, India and England clashed during the first T20 World Cup in Durban, South Africa. Then Yuvraj Singh did a history-making wonder. Yuvraj made the ball visible to every part of the field in one over of England pacer Stuart Broad. Yuvraj made a world record by hitting 6 consecutive sixes in Broad’s over. Till date, such a feat has happened only 3 times in international cricket.
Now Bumrah has given a new wound
Well, at that time, Broad was a newcomer and played only a few matches, but after 15 years he is counted among the best Test bowlers in world cricket and more than 550 Test wickets are testimony to his ability and success. . But once again he has had to go through his worst phase against India. Broad made a record by spending 35 runs in an over on the second day of the fifth Test between India and England being played at Edgbaston. Or say Jasprit Bumrah made the record for the most runs in Test by hitting 4 fours and 2 sixes in Broad’s over.
In this over, 29 runs came off Bumrah’s bat, while 6 runs also came as extra. In this way Brian Lara, George Bailey and Keshav Maharaj combined to break the record of 28 runs and now there is a chance to name Jasprit Bumrah apart from Yuvraj for a light joke from Broad.
3⃣5⃣ runs in one over
2⃣9⃣ off Bumrah’s bat

Shastri the witness of every moment
By the way, the witness of both these events was former Indian coach and dashing all-rounder Ravi Shastri. Shastri was doing commentary at the time of Yuvraj’s 6 sixes in Durban, while in Birmingham also Shastri was part of the commentary panel. Shastri himself had done such a smashing feat in his career. He had hit 6 consecutive sixes in an over in first class cricket. Bumrah’s blazing batting also surprised him. He said, today when 35 runs were scored, I was on the mic again. I thought I had seen everything but didn’t. I had seen Yuvraj’s 36 runs. I had killed myself too, but what I saw today was shocking. You could never have imagined that. Jasprit Bumrah made a world record for the first time as an Indian captain batting at number 10. Bowler again the same – Stuart Broad.
