Brian Lara Posts Epic Congratulatory Tweet After Jasprit Bumrah Breaks His Batting Record
Brian Lara congratulated India stand-in skipper Jasprit Bumrah after the pacer took a world record 35 runs from Stuart Broad in an over in Test cricket
Bumrah displayed his prowess with the bat by taking 35 from Broad's final over in the first innings as India's tail wagged to help them amass a score of 416
Broad conceded a total of 35 runs of which 29 runs went to Bumrah's account.
Thus the star Indian bowler surpassed the previous record held by West Indies great Brian Lara, Australia's George Bailey and South Africa's Keshav Maharaj.
"Join me in congratulating the young @Jaspritbumrah93 on breaking the record of Most Runs in a Single Over in Tests. Well done!" tweeted Lara.
Lara took 28 off one Robin Peterson over back in 2003, while Bailey (2013) and Maharaj (2020) also shared the record.
