Burmah, who batted at No. 10, remained unbeaten on 31 off 16 with four fours and two sixes. India was all out for 416 in 84.5 overs after centuries from Rishabh Pant (146) and Ravindra Jadeja (104).

In 2007, Broad had conceded 36 runs in one over against India as Yuvraj Singh hit a world record six sixes off the bowler in South Africa during the ICC World Twenty20 Championship.

The previous record for scoring the most number of runs in a single over in Tests belonged to Brian Lara (West Indies), George Bailey (Australia) and Keshav Maharaj (South Africa). They all had scored 28 runs each in an over.

Lara achieved the feat against South Africa’s Robin Peterson in 2003 while Bailey hit England paceman James Anderson for 28 runs in 2013. Maharaj scored those runs off England’s part-time spinner Joe Root in 2020.
