Most runs scored in a single over
In the world of cricket, Jasprit Bumrah is a name that is synonymous with fast bowling. He is known for his ability to bowl at high speeds and his unorthodox action that makes it difficult for batsmen to pick his deliveries. However, in a recent turn of events, Bumrah has made headlines for a different reason altogether. The fast bowler has created a new record for scoring the most runs in a single over in a test match.
Yes, it is Jasprit Bumrah, THE BATSMAN
Yes, you read that right. Jasprit Bumrah, who is not known for his batting skills, has now etched his name in the record books for his performance with the bat. In the fifth test match between India and England, which was played in Bermingham, Bumrah smashed 29 runs in an over bowled by Stuart Broad. In this over a rocord 35 runs were scored by India which includes 5 wides and 1 no ball as well.
To put this into perspective, Bumrah has scored more runs in a single over than some of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. This includes the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, and Brian Lara.

The fact that Bumrah has achieved this feat is nothing short of remarkable. He is not known for his batting prowess and is often seen as a tailender who can offer some resistance with the bat. However, his performance in the fourth test match against England has shown that he is capable of much more.
Bumrah’s innings not only helped India to a respectable total but also allowed the bowlers to have a go at the English batsmen with a bit more confidence. His knock was a testament to the fact that in cricket, anything is possible if you have the right mindset and approach. The record of most runs scored in a single over is now with Jasprit Bumrah.

On the fourth and the fifth ball, he smashed two fours over the bowler’s head and finally finishing the over with another four, by cutting the ball away from the short-third man fielder.
