Remember when Yuvraj Singh crushed 36 runs on Stuart Broad in the 2007 T20 World Cup? Jasprit Bumrah didn’t quite redo his feat but came close as he skipped 29 runs from the England pacer in a miss on Day 2 of the ongoing 5th Test in Birmingham. There were six extras, bringing the total number of runs allowed in the over to 35, making it the most expensive over in Test cricket. Legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar led the Twitter reactions after the tense over in which Bumrah punished Broad’s short ball barrage.
†Kya yeh Yuvi hai ya Bumrah!? 2007 ki yaad dilaa di..(Is this Yuvi or Bumrah! Reminded me of 2007),’ Sachin tweeted.
Kya yeh Yuvi hai ya Bumrah!?

You can’t be serious. Of those, 35 are left, most of them courtesy of Jasper Bumrah.

Bumrah, in his first game as India captain, hit an unbeaten 31 on just 16 deliveries to help secure some crucial runs at the bottom of the order as India made 416 in their first innings.
India was in trouble on day 1 out of 98/5 before Rishabh Pant’s scintillating age helped revive them.
Pant hit 146 of 111 as he went on a 222-run partnership with Ravindra Jadeja.
Jadeja hit a century of his own on Day 2, having resumed from his overnight score of 83.
Bumrah then removed both England openers before rain interrupted play shortly after the second session resumed.
