IND vs ENG 2022: “What I saw today was something completely strange”
Before India Head Coach Ravi Shastri described Jasipino Bumrah English football team pacer Stuart Broad for 29 more runs on Saturday as something ‘completely weird’.
Following the end of his tenure as India’s coach, Shastri has returned to commenting and is part of the board of directors for the ongoing India-England series. After Jasosystem Bumrah stunned the Broad and England stages with a forgettable performance in the Birmingham Test on Saturday, Shastri shared his views on the India captain’s dazzling cameo.
In a video uploaded on the official social media of the Indian cricket team, he said:
“Don’t tell me I was on the mic again when 35 runs were recorded. I think I’ve seen it all, but not really. 36 from Yuvraj (Singh), 36 I hit myself and today what I saw was strange. It’s something you would never have imagined. A world record from Jasionary Bumrah, beating in 10th place for the first time, as captain of India. “
The 60-year-old added on the Indian captain’s compelling performance with the willow:
“You feel like you’ve seen everything. But you have to realize that you are still a student in the game. Something that will surprise you another day. What I saw today was something completely strange. Jas scam Bumrah breaks a world record – surpassing 29 in 35+ runs.
By overtaking the Broad club in 29 serves, Bumrah overtook Brian Lara, George Bailey and Keshav Maharaj to become the player who scored the most serves in the Cricket Test. Overall Broad is 35, again a world record, previous highest was 28.
By chance, Yuvraj hit Broad for 6 consecutive rounds in the 2007 T20 World Cup clash in Durban. There’s a connection between Shastri to that butt as well as his being on the air when Yuvraj got mad.
The former all-rounder of India witnessed some historic moments of Indian cricket from the comment box. He was also on the mic when MS Dhoni hit six goals, helping India lift the World Cup title by more than 50 in 2011. Shastri himself hit six six goals in domestic cricket.
