Watch as England’s Stuart Broad concedes the most expensive over in Test cricket history

Second day of action in the fifth Test match between England and India got off to a forgettable start for bowler Stuart Broad.

The 36-year-old sent down the most expensive over in the history of Test match cricket as India piled on the runs at Edgbaston. 

Visiting skipper Jasprit Bumrah was in fine form as Broad went for 35 runs - seven more than the previous record.

The England bowler had previously been hit for six sixes in an over by Yuvraj Singh in a T20 match against India back in 2007.

Broad now also holds the Test record following a disastrous over against India's Bumrah.

The batsman hooked the first ball for four as Zak Crawley was unable to stop the ball from reaching the boundary.

The second ball bounced out of reach for both the batter and wicketkeeper Sam Billings. As the ball powered towards the boundary, India had four more runs plus one extra for the wide.

Next, Bumrah top-edged another hook fine over Billings' head for six, with a no-ball from Broad again spelling an extra run

The batter then produced three straight fours before finishing the over with an emphatic six and a quick single.

Only three times in Test history has an over gone for 28 runs, with England's James Anderson and Joe Root on the receiving end.

Anderson suffered his worst Test over at the hands of Australia back in 2013. On that occasion it was George Bailey who took him for four, six, two, four, six and six as the England bowler finished with chastening numbers of 0 for 105 off 19 overs.

Root's over came in far more unlikely circumstances, during the latter stages of an innings win over South Africa in 2020.

The Proteas were 138 for nine and needed 290 just to put England back into bat. Nevertheless, Keshav Maharaj produced three straight fours and a pair of sixes during a last-wicket stand of 99 with teammate Dane Paterson.

Bumrah, who scored 29 off his bar in Broad's over in addition to the extras, has now moved top of the list previously headed by Bailey, Maharaj and West Indies great Brian Lara, who hit four fours and two sixes in a Robin Peterson over against South Africa in 2003 to first set the record of 28.
