"Sad to lost my record" - Robin Peterson pokes fun at Stuart Broad after pacer bowled most expensive over in Test history
But the real cameo came from the bat of the Indian skipper, who registered his name in the record books. As an Indian fan, no one can forget the beating that Yuvraj gave to Stuart Broad in the inaugural T20 World Cup in South Africa.
But it looked like that history had been repeated once. The bowler was the same, but the batter was Jasprit Bumrah. He hit Broad for 35 runs in an over, breaking the record for the most runs scored in an over in Test cricket.
With this, the English pacer broke the 19-year-old record of South African cricketer Robin Peterson. The Proteas cricketer saw the funny side to it and he poked at Broad in a cheeky way. He took to Twitter and wrote, "Sad to lose my record today 😜 oh well, records are made to be broken I guess. Onto the next one."

Notably, he conceded 28 runs in a match against the West Indies in 2003 in one single over. It was Brain Lara who hit him for four boundaries and two sixes in one over to make it a 28-run over.
Till date, he held the record of conceeding the most runs in one over but today Broad has registered this unwanted record to his name. However, the English pacer became the only bowler in history to concede 35 or more runs twice in international cricket.
He also had the record of conceding 36 runs in a T20I game. Talking about his over to Bumrah, he gave away 29 runs off the bat and six runs out of 35 came in extra.
