Twitter goes ballistic as Bumrah goes big in a 35-run Broad over

Ravi Shastri wrote: “Just when you think you’ve seen it all, this game surprises you the most.” India captain Jaspreet Bumrah tempted him with a headlong bat at Stewart Broad over 35 pitches, the most expensive in cricket history.

Boomer came to bat in over 80 runs in India with only two wickets left. Then, when Anderson knocked out Jadeja who had just scored a hundred, Bumrah kicked out the whole thing. And he found an opportunity to do so the next time Stuart Broad misjudged India No. 10, his bowling is wide and short.

The reserve captain hit three sixty-fourths in an overrun that also consists of five extras from wide and no ball. He has broken the previous record for the most expensive red ball cricket (28 runs). Of course, Cricket Twitter was at its best as they tied in over 36 specials in the 2007 T20 World Cup when Yuvraj Singh hit his right arm at a speed of 6 seconds in more.

Ravi Shastri, who was on the air during the 2007 match, was also on the commentary team for the England-India Test and spoke about the same in his social media post.

Even Sachin Tendulkar faced the same throwback with Stuart Broad and England’s match against India.

Robin Petersen, who was on the receiving end on one of the three occasions when 28 runs were scored in more than one Test cricket, also took to his Twitter account to do a cheeky dig at Broad to break his record.
