Sports Desk: In international cricket, white ball cricket has a record of 6 sixes in 7 overs. But what is the maximum number of runs in an over in Test cricket? India pacer Jaspreet Bumrah has set a world record for 35 runs in an over by England bowler Stuart Broad in the Edgbaston Test. On the second day on Saturday (July 2), he batted in the lower order in the 64th over by Stuart Broad and scored 4 fours and 2 sixes. Bumrah, who did not score a run off 6 balls, made 29 off 14 balls at the end of the over. Earlier in the Test, West Indies legend Brian Lara, Australia's George Bailey and South Africa's Keshav Maharaj had scored the highest 26 runs in an over. In the 2003-04 season, Lara scored a career-best 28 runs in 4 fours and 2 sixes in South Africa's Robin Peterson's over. Then in the 2013-14 season, George Bailey scored 26 runs in 3 sixes and 2 fours in an over by James Anderson of England in Perth. And in the 2019-20 season, Keshab Maharaj took 26 runs in the over of Stuart Broad in Port Elizabeth. In the first innings of the Edgbaston Test, Bumrah turned the first ball of the 64th over into four. The next ball is bounded with wide. It comes to a total of 5 runs. Broad and Bumrah hit sixes off the second ball. It comes with 6 runs. Then hit the second, third and fourth balls with three fours in a row. He touched the record of maximum 27 runs in one over in Test. Bumrah then set a world record of 35 runs in one over with sixes off the fifth ball and one run off the sixth ball. Broad's over run figure was 64,5,6,4,4,4,7,1 = 35. Bumrah had 29 runs. The remaining 6 runs come from wide, bye and no. English bowler Broad made history as the most unfortunate and costly bowler in the history of cricket. Bumrah's compatriot Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes in one over in 2006. This time the number ten batsman set a world record by beating him.
