England great Stuart Broad set an unwanted world record by conceding 35 runs in a Test over on Saturday, against India at Edgbaston.

Stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah did most of the damage by hitting 29 runs in an over from Broad that also featured five wides and a no-ball which was smashed for six.

The previous most runs scored in a Test over was 28, a feat achieved three times in the format's 145-year history.

India were 377-9 at the start of the 84th over, with Bumrah - leading India for the first time in place of regular captain Rohit Sharma who was ruled out with Covid-19 - on strike.

Bumrah hooked the first ball for four off a top edge and the next delivery saw a bouncer soar over wicketkeeper Sam Billings' head for five wides.

Then came the six from a no-ball - worth seven runs in total - off another top edge.

Broad's following delivery, a full toss, was smashed through mid-on for four.

An edged four to fine leg took India past 400 before Bumrah swung himself off his feet hitting another boundary.

Bumrah then ensured the Test-over record was broken in style with a hooked six off deep backward square leg before the over ended with a scrambled single as Broad failed to run out Mohammad Siraj.
