India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah stunned West Indies with a spectacular spell of fast bowling to dismantle the hosts at Sabina Park in Jamaica. Bumrah, who finished the day with six wickets including a hat-trick credited his captain Virat Kohli for having achieved the feat.

Bumrah’s scalps included Darren Bravo, Shahmar Brooks, and Roston Chase. Bravo gave a simple catch in the slips before a sharp inswinger from Jasprit Bumrah rattled Brooks’ pad. Umpire Paul Wilson raised his finger immediately but Brooks reviewed it unsuccessfully.

But when the third ball came in once again to Chase to hit his pads, there was no appeal from Bumrah as he started to walk back to his bowling stride. However, Virat Kohli seemed convinced from the slip region and so did Rishabh Pant.

Both looked sure that the ball didn’t hit Roston Chase’s bat and persuaded Jasprit Bumrah to take the review. The ball-tracking showed three green signals and Jasprit Bumrah became the third Indian to claim a Test hat-trick. The young fast bowler after the day’s play gave the credit where it is due.

“Actually I didn’t know. I was not very sure of the appeal,” Bumrah in an interview to “I thought it was bat [first], so I didn’t appeal so much. But it was a good review in the end (laughs), and I think I owe the hat-trick to the captain,” he added.
