The umpire said: “Let us do the umpiring and you do the batting alright? Otherwise, you are going to get into trouble again. One for the over.” But Broad kept on chirping which made the umpire to say, “Broady! Broady! Get on with the batting and shut up.”

This incident happened on Day 3 of the fifth Test when Broad was batting with Sam Billings although he walked back to the dressing room soon after Mohammed Siraj dismissed him for one run. Broad has reached his personal landmark of 550 wickets in Test cricket. However, he also recorded the unwanted 35 runs in an over in the history of Test cricket when Jasprit Bumrah smashed him with fours and sixes in an over.
