England cricketer Stuart Broad had one of the worst outings of his career on the cricket field on Saturday, July 2 against India in the fifth Test match at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The pacer was at the receiving end of Jasprit Bumrah’s exploits in the first innings of the match. He conceded 35 runs in the over, registering a new record in Test cricket.
Indian skipper Jasprit Bumrah took the attack to Stuart Broad in the eighty-fourth over of the innings. He slammed four boundaries and a couple of sixes, including one on a no-ball in the over. Broad also conceded five runs off a wide delivery on the second ball of the over. This marked a new record for the highest runs scored in an over in Test cricket.
BOOM BOOM BUMRAH IS ON FIRE WITH THE BAT 🔥🔥
3️⃣5️⃣ runs came from that Broad over 👉🏼 The most expensive over in the history of Test cricket 🤯

Back in 2003, Brian Lara had slammed 28 runs off Robin Peterson’s over in Test cricket. Stuart Broad’s 35-runs over sparked a meme fest on social media. The fans trolled the England bowlers for achieving this “unwanted” record”. They also reminded Stuart Broad of the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup, when he was hit for six sixes in an over by Yuvraj Singh.
Let’s take a look at how Twitterati reacted:
