The cricketing world was in for a huge surprise when Jasprit Bumrah, India’s regular captain at the Edgbaston Test, set a huge world record with the bat on Day 2 of the 5th Test against England. Known for his deadly bowling spells, Bumrah struck out towards the end of India’s first innings, leaving everyone stunned with his attacking at bat. Bumrah was at his best bat in hand as Stuart Broad gave up 35 runs in an over, including extras, while Bumrah outmatched Brian Lara and George Bailey for the most runs in an over in Test cricket.
When England are on the receiving end in cricket, no one is more delighted than their bitter rivals Australia.
The same was seen again when Cricket.com, ouch, a production of CA Digital Media – a division of Cricket Australia, did an epic dig at the Three Lions by posting on Twitter the video of Bailey hitting James Anderson for 28 runs in a about, which was the previous joint record.
The accompanying caption was equally epic. “He may not hold the record anymore, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy George Bailey crushing Jimmy Anderson all over WACA!

England are in a precarious situation with their side losing half with less than a hundred runs on the board at the end of a rainy Day 2 in Edgbaston.
The in-form pair of captain Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow sit in the center and England stalwarts would hope the duo will come up with another rear guard this summer.
