ENG vs IND: I Thought I'd Seen It All But Not Really - Ravi Shastri On Jasprit Bumrah's Record Breaking Over

Former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri was stunned at Jasprit Bumrah’s unbelievable achievement in the fifth and final Test between England and India on Saturday.

Bumrah took Stuart Broad to the cleaners, taking 35 runs in a single over off the English pacer. Bumrah hit four boundaries and two sixes, along with a single, a no ball, and five wides to set the new record in Test cricket for the most expensive over in Test history.

Now don’t tell me I was again on the mic, when 35 runs was scored. I thought I’d seen it all, but not really, you know 36 from your Yuvraj Singh, 36 I hit myself. And today what I saw was bizarre.”

It’s something we would have never imagined the world record from Jusprit Bumrah, batting at number 10 as captain of India for the first time… going past Lara, George Bailey, Keshav Maharaj. 29 from the over the bowler the same, who Yuvraj hit for six sixes, Stuart Broad, going for that many,” Shastri told in a video released by the BCCI.

Shastri pointed out that anything can happen on a given day as evidenced by Bumrah’s assault. He also achieved the feat in his first Test as the Indian captain.

And the entire over went for 35, which is again a world record, the previous highest was 28. So you know, you feel you’ve seen everything but you must realise you’re still a student in the game.”

Something would surprise you on another day, but what I saw today was something absolutely bizarre, you know, Bumrah breaking the world record of getting 29 off his bat in at 35 run over,” he also added.

Bumrah also returned later in England’s first innings to effect the dismissals of Zak Crawley and Alex Lees before rain interrupted play on Day 2.
