Jasprit Bumrah Greater Than Brian Lara?

Stuart Broad, a bunny, all fake news.
Last weekend England Cricket undergoing a sort of renaissance under New Zealand born Ben Stokes as Captain and remarkable ex New Zealand Captain Brendan McCullum as head coach leading the way, were playing India at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Fifteen years earlier Stuart Broad had the mortification of being hit for six sixes in a 20 twenty game by Indian Yuvraj Singh.
Sing batted to over 1900 runs in 40 matches averaging 34
Jasprit Bumrah not so much 30 matches 212 runs average 7.31 (Highest score 34)
Well some changes for history last Saturday with India at 377/9 Jasprit came in smiling.
Eight balls later they were 412/9
Stuart Broad’s first ball misfielded four runs.
Next an errant buncer went sailing over everyone for four more.
Third ball a top edge and Jasprit had a six over third man. More pain it was a No Ball.
Fourth ball, second legal one, full toss dispatched to mid wicket bouncing just inside the rope, four.
Broad came back but an inside edge to the rope four.
Ball six, a tangled Bumrah swinging to leg four more.
Seven a better contact six over fine leg.
34 from seven, five legitimate one wide and a no ball so what does Mr Bumrah do, takes a single to “keep strike”. Total from 84th over 35 runs no wickets

All academic though with a resurgent England winning by seven wickets on the fifth day.

Another Record for Stuart Broad who also has reached 350 test wickets, Relief for South African Robin Peterson who had been savaged by Brian Lara for 28 in an over as the previous one test over record.

Cant delete the Bumrah figures below?

  1. The poms then ran down India – scoring 378/3 in the fourth dig of the test. Bairstowe previously a tradesman at best has a new lease of life while Root scored his 28th? test century.

    What has McCullum got them on?

    • Imagine if McCullum could motivate his NZ racehorses like that. Could be a $ or more to be made.
