Here is how the over went –
Bumrah hooked the first ball of the over 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 that came close to a no-ball on height, 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 remained unbeaten on 31 off 16 balls and added 41 for the last wicket along with Mohammed Siraj (2) as India ended their first innings on 416 in 84.5 overs, with Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja top-scoring with 146 and 104 respectively.
