Jasprit Bumrah who has been the top bowler of the World has made an out and out performance in the ongoing Test Cricket. He was the third Indian to claim a hat-trick in the Tests. Further, Bumrah displayed outstanding bowling skills over windies in Jamaica as he took his fifth five-wicket haul in Test cricket on Saturday.
Jasprit Bumrah was the one to achieve the feat after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan, who made their hat-trick in Test matches against Australia and Pakistan, respectively. This was Bumrah’s second five-wicket haul in two innings where he had picked up a five-wicket haul in the second innings of the first Test against the West Indies in Antigua.
In the first-innings where India made a total of 416, the fast bowler dismissed Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, and Roston Chase with his successive deliveries in his fourth over. Bumrah’s achievement was unusual in that it necessitated a review of the third decision to confirm the dismissal.
That review through television replays and ball-tracking technology showed the ball to striking leg-stump, resulting in a reversal of the decision and triggering celebrations among the Indian players at Bumrah’s historic achievement which reduced the West Indies to 13 for four.
Bumrah’s hat-trick was recorded as the 44th in Test history and the first since England spinner Moeen Ali against South Africa in 2017.
