Ravi Shastri has shared some memorable moments on the mic and he has witnessed some significant junctures in international cricket which include the World Cup win in 2011, the T20 World Cup win in 2007, and Yuvraj Singh’s incredible feat of hitting 6 sixes in an over in 2007.
Now, Ravi Shastri had added another feather to his cap as the former Indian Head coach was present on-air when Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah took a liking over Stuart Broad on Day 2 of the rescheduled fifth test match.
Bumrah tore apart Broad as the right arm pacer scored 35 of the over, with 29 of them coming from his bat. With his blistering performance, Bumrah now holds the record for scoring the most runs in an over in Tests, beating the second-best of 28 by a comfortable margin.
Just when you think you have seen it all, this game surprises you even more: Ravi Shastri
Former Indian coach Ravi Shastri, under whom India gained the 2-1 lead last year, is a part of the broadcasting team. The former Indian captain took to Twitter to share his thoughts after witnessing Bumrah’s blitz.
Shastri tweeted that he was at the right place and at the right time for witnessing two incredible feats in international cricket, i.e. Yuvraj Singh hitting six sixes and Bumrah scoring 35 runs in one over. Coincidentally, Stuart Broad was at the receiving end on both occasions.
“Just when you think you have seen it all, this game surprises you even more. Fascinating batting from @Jaspritbumrah93 to smash the red cherry for 29 in an over. First in Durban with @YUVSTRONG12 & now in Birmingham. On-air right place right time for 35 and 36,” Shastri tweeted.
