Jasprit Bumrah destroyed seasoned England bowler Stuart Broad during the 5th Test of the 2021 series between the hosts and Team India on Saturday at Edgbaston.

In the decisive Test series match at Edgbaston, Indian bowler Bumrah treated Broad somewhat similarly to how great batsman Yuvraj Singh destroyed him for 36 runs. Broad leaked 35 runs to create yet another undesirable record and put his name in the record books for all the wrong reasons.

Stuard Broad Won’t Be Proud Of This Record: Aakash Chopra

The senior England bowler will always remember two names, Bumrah and Yuvraj, according to veteran Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra, who was commenting on Broad’s awful stint against the replacement Test skipper.

Former cricketer and well-known cricket analyst Chopra shared a video on his YouTube account in which he discussed the second day of the postponed fifth Test match between Team India and Ben Stokes’ England.

“Stuart Broad will always remember two names, one is of course Yuvraj Singh – he had struck six sixes, and the second is Jasprit Boom Boom Bumrah.

Stuart Broad has picked up 550 Test wickets but he has created a record which he won’t be very proud of,” Chopra said. The record for the most runs scored in a single over was broken by pacer Bumrah. 

Jasprit Bumrah Did An Amazing Job: Aakash Chopra

Bumrah scored 29 runs with the willow in the 84th over of the England pacer’s bowling. In the end, Broad’s over saw him give up a record-breaking 35 runs.

“35 runs in an over, the most expensive over in the history of Test cricket, the batter was Jasprit Bumrah. He did an amazing job and took India beyond 400.

How were 35 runs scored in an over, that is a beautiful thing – first a four, then a wide which went for four, six off a no-ball, and then four, four, four and six,” the former India opener added. India is aiming to win its first Test series in England since 2007 under Bumrah’s direction.
