Bumrah scored 29 runs off the bat in an over from Broad that also comprised five wides and a no-ball bludgeoned for six. Following this, the 28-year old created a world record for maximum runs off a single over in Test cricket, leapfrogging the legendary Brian Lara’s by one run. Lara had smashed 28 runs in an over from Robin Peterson against South Africa in 2003.

Bumrah launched an attack on the English pacer in the 84th over of India’s innings as he smashed Broad for a boundary on the first ball of the over before the England pacer bowled a short ball which went over wicket-keeper Sam Billings’ head for 5 extra runs with boundary.
Bumrah then slammed a six off the next delivery which was adjudged a no-ball and followed it up with three back-to-back fours off the next three balls. He then whacked a six off the penultimate delivery before taking a single to end the over.
Here is a look at batters with most runs in a single over in Tests:
- 35 Jasprit Bumrah off Stuart Broad Birmingham 2022*
- 28 Brian Lara off Robin Peterson Johannesburg 2003
- 28 George Bailey off James Anderson Perth 2013
- 28 Keshav Maharaj off Joe Root Port Elizabeth 2020
Broad, who already holds the unwanted record of conceding most runs in the shortest format of the game, has now claimed a record of conceding the most runs in the history of Test cricket. The Indian speedster, meanwhile remained unbeaten on 31 off 16 balls with four boundaries and two sixes as India reached 416 in 84.5 overs in the first innings.
