Jasper Bumrah is one of the best fast bowlers of modern times, but on Saturday he shocked everyone with a great blow against England at Edgbaston on the day of the fifth rescheduled Test. The victim of his attack was England pacer Stuart Broad, who eventually gave up 35 runs in an over – the most scored in an over in Test cricket. Bumrah continued to penalize the short balls coming from Broad, scoring 29 runs into the over. In the end, Bumrah finished at 31* with four fours and two sixes. India was all out for 416 in the first innings.

Broad conceded 4.5 walks, 6 (no-ball), 4, 4, 4, 6 and 1 in the 84th over and gave up 35 runs as a result. It is important to note that Stuart Broad has the most expensive left in T20Is and was crushed by Yuvraj Singh for six sixes in the 2007 T20 World Cup.
Before Broad, Robin Peterson (South Africa) and James Anderson (England) were the most expensive left in Test Cricket, having conceded 28 runs each. Peterson conceded these many runs in 2003 against the West Indies, with Brian Lara taking him to the cleaners, while Anderson conceded 28 against Australian George Bailey in 2013.
India was eliminated for 416 in the first innings of the ongoing Edgbaston Test. Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja scored centuries for India while James Anderson took five wickets for England.
Pant scored 146 while Jadeja scored 104 for Team India.
