Stand-in India captain Jasprit Bumrah, known for his bowling exploits, produced a counter-attack on Day 2 of the ongoing fifth Test against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Bumrah broke the West Indies by beating Brian Lara’s stellar record for most runs scored in an over in Test cricket, scoring 29 points on Stuart Broad’s over, ultimately bringing in 35 points, including six extra. On Twitter, former Indian batter Virender Sehwag commented on Bumrah’s exploits against Broad in the first session on Day 2.
Referring to Yuvraj Singh’s 36 run over to Broad at the 2007 World T20, Sehwag shared a hilarious meme from a famous Bollywood movie titled “Dhamaal”.
“Pata nahi, aisi dangerous situations me main automatic kaise aage aa jata hoon (I don’t know how I automatically get stuck in such dangerous situations),” the meme read.
