Cricket fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw Jasprit Bumrah smash England’s Stuart Broad for a world record of 29 runs in one over on Day Two of the Edgbaston Test on Saturday.
His former Team India coach Ravi Shastri, who was fortunate enough to call Bumrah’s Birmingham exploits from the Sky TV commentary box, had a significant reaction to the outpouring of praise.
You think you’ve seen everything, but you need to remember that you’re still learning about the game.
You might be surprised by something on another day, but I saw something completely bizarre today.
Shastri stated in a video post, “Jasprit Bumrah, breaking the world record, getting 29 off his bat, in a 35 run over.”
In addition, Shastri was on the field when Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes in one over against England in the 2007 World T20 at Durban.
Naturally, he was also the first person to perform a Garry Sobers, in 1968,
When he slammed Baroda’s Tilak Raj for six maximums in a Ranji Trophy match played at the Wankhede Stadium between 1984 and 1985.
Shastri witnessed a second one-over boundary spree on June 27, 1982, a little more than 40 years earlier.
The Mumbai dasher hit England captain Bob Willis for six fours in an over that included a no-ball while serving as Sandeep Patil’s teammate.
Patil moved from 73 to 104 off only nine conveyances.
After scoring 174 against Australia in Adelaide the year before, Patil’s unbeaten 129 in a rain-ruined game in which both teams only batted for an innings each was his second Test century.
Patil stated the following in an interview with journalist Makarand Waingankar that appeared in Sportsweek magazine on August 18, 1982:
It simply took place. Willis bowled reasonably well. I believe I got everything just right. Excellent timing was used.
I had no idea I was in the 1990s at all.
Anyway, where do you get the time, especially in one over, to think of so many things in Test cricket?
Year of the World Cup Victory in 1983:
Sandeep Patil, the Unknown Hero of India’s Wonderful Triumph in the World Cup in 1983:
In the Runs Tally, he was at position 16. Among the 19 players in the tournament who scored at least 200 runs, he had the third-lowest batting average.
Three Indian batsmen had a higher total – Kapil Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Mohinder Amarnath.
But, as per Effect Record –
An all encompassing and far reaching cricket scientific framework which gives setting to each match and execution,
It was Sandeep Patil, who was not exclusively India’s most significant batsman of the 1983 World Cup yet additionally the second-most elevated influence batsman,
After Viv Richards who scored 151 runs more than him in the competition!
In eight innings, Patil managed just 216 runs at a modest average of 30.85, including two fifties in the tournament.
He did not score any significant runs.
However, the timing and context of his performances, as well as the rapid rate at which he scored runs, stood out.
Patil steadied the innings in India’s tournament opener against the two-time defending World Cup champions West Indies at Manchester with a useful 30-run partnership with Amarnath before adding 49 runs with Yashpal Sharma.
