Jasprit Bumrah brought back memories of 2007 as he dismissed Stuart Broad for 35 in an over. It was an aberration as no one expected a classic attack on one of the best modern bowlers in English history. Broad, who took his 550th Test wicket on Saturday, was sent on a leather hunt within 30 minutes of achieving this special feat. During this, India 377/9 when Bunra’s attack began in the 83rd over of the Indian innings. Some players were surprised to see Broad being taken to all corners of the stadium.
While non-striker Mohammad Siraj couldn’t stop laughing and joined the fun with Bumrah, like Virat Kohli And Rahul Dravid could not stop himself but clapped from the dressing room. Here is a complete video.

India captain Jasprit Bumrah beat Stuart Broad for 35 to set a world record for most runs in an over in Test cricket, beating the great Brian Lara’s feat by one run.
The world record was held by Lara for 18 years – he had hit South African left-arm spinner Robin Pietersen for 28 in a Test match in 2003–04, which included four fours and two sixes in six legal balls.
Former Australia player George Bailey also scored 28 runs in an over but he was behind Lara in terms of boundary count.
Broad, who also hit six sixes in an over off Yuvraj Singh in the opening World In the rescheduled fifth Test in T20 in 2007, India conceded 35 runs in the 84th over of the first innings. There were six extra runs – five wides and one no ball.
The Indian captain remained unbeaten on 31 off 16 balls with the help of four fours and two sixes.
It started with a foul hook that went for a boundary, and in despair, Broad bowled a bouncer that went for five wides.
The next ball was again dug into short and another top-edge conceded seven runs to Bumrah, which included a no-ball.
The next three balls hit for boundaries in different directions – one through mid-on, one through fine leg and the last one through mid-wicket.
To add insult to his injuries, Bumrah struck a six over deep mid-wicket with a “bazzball” (the current buzzword of English cricket that emphasizes the intent of the attack brought in by new coach Brendon McCullum).
India finished their first innings on 416 runs with the help of centuries from Rishabh Pant (146) and Ravindra Jadeja (104).
