Richard Kettleborough asked the England star to shut up
Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow remained undefeated overnight, putting England just over 100 runs from a convincing victory.
Even if England and India are edging closer to a thrilling comeback triumph, premier paceman Stuart Broad has had a forgettable game thus far. So Broad had the awful distinction of bowling the most expensive over in Test cricket, having been first humiliated by Jasprit Bumrah. So after coming out to bat in England’s first innings, he attempted to dispute something and received a talking to by English umpire Richard Kettleborough.

Umpire Kettleborough’s voice was captured on the stump microphone in a video that has since gone viral on social media when he told Broad to “stop up” and continue batting.
Additionally, the umpire can be heard warning Broad that he might get into trouble once more.
“You take the batting; let us handle the umpiring, okay?” stated Kettleborough.
“Otherwise, you’ll find yourself in difficulty once more. One more to go. Broady! Broady! Get to the batting and stop talking “The England star could hear Kettleborough warning him.
