Birmingham: Stand-in India skipper Jasprit Bumrah hit English pacer Stuart Broad for 29 runs to script a world record for maximum runs off a single over in Test match. Bumrah bettered legendary Brian Lara’s record by one solitary run.

Lara held the record for 18 years. The West Indian southpaw had hit Proteas left-arm spinner Robin Peterson for 28 runs in a Test in 2003-04. Lara’s 28 included four hits to the fences and two over the boundary off six legal balls.

Former Australia batter George Bailey had also hit 28 in an over but he was placed behind Lara in terms of boundary count.

Broad was was also at the receiving end when he was hit for six over boundaries in an over by Yuvraj Singh in the inaugural World T20 in South Africa back in 2007.

India’s stand-in skipper was unbeaten on 31 off 16 balls with four fours and two sixes.
