Watch: Jasprit Bumrah's unorthodox shot that went for four in the 35-run over against Stuart Broad
Team India posted a massive total of 416 in the first innings of the one-off Test against England. India had lost some quick wickets and it never felt that they would achieve such a big score. However, Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja batted well to make that happen. Jasprit Bumrah also had a solid contribution with the willow. In this article, we take a look at Jasprit Bumrah's unorthodox shot that went for four in the 35-run over against Stuart Broad.
The most expensive over in Test cricket
In the 84th over of the innings, Bumrah took 35 runs from the bowling of Jasprit Bumrah. While he scored 29 runs with the bat, Broad gave away six extras, making it a 35 run over. It was the most expensive over in the history of Test cricket. Not many expected that something of this sort will happen, especially by Bumrah against a pacer who has more than 500 wickets. That said, Bumrah had been working on his batting skills and this was expected.
Jasprit Bumrah was brilliant in that over
In the Lord's Test match, too, Bumrah had displayed his batting skills. Now, against Anderson, he showed a more fearless version of it. He scored two sixes and four boundaries to make it an important over for the Indians. One of the shots came from Rishabh Pant's book, as the speedster lost his balance while playing it. Here is a look at it:
