Harbhajan Singh, Ian Bishop and others applaud Jasprit Bumrah's maiden-tested hat trick



The Cricket fraternity on Sunday applauded India's Pacer Jasprit Bumrah's career in West Indies Test hat-trick in the current second Test.

The 25-year-old became the third Indian to achieve the biggest figure in the game. Earlier, Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan had taken hat-tricks in test matches for India.

Harbhajan had achieved the feat against Australia in 2001, while Pathan had received a hat against Pakistan in 2006.

Bumrah returned with his figure of 6-16 at 9.1. After the spell, he tweeted, "One day I won't forget." India batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and former spin Harbhajan Singh greeted Bumrah for his brilliant bowling spell.

"Great first hundred from @Hanumavihari and an incredible hat from @ Jaspritbumrah93 … Indian cricket at its best! # INDvsWI," Dhawan tweeted.

"Sensational @ Jaspritbumrah93 is doing well for your big spell .. welcome to club hattrick so proud of you. Keep it going brother," Harbhajan tweeted.

Former West Indies champion Ian Bishop took to Twitter and wrote: "Jasprit Bumrah is a talent that has passed a lifetime."

Bumrah dismissed Darren Dravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in consecutive balls in the 9th round of the Windies.

Bravo was sent back to the stand as Bumrah caught him in the second slip. Brooks and Chase grabbed plums in front and both had been judged before the wicket.

Chase originally had his own, but Kohli had chosen a review and the tracker ball showed that the ball clearly hit the edges.

"The Caribbean islands have seen so many big bowling sail out of their fury, and this performance by @ Jaspritbumrah93 would have made each of these great wow exactly #WIvIND happy," Ashwin tweeted.

The West Indies finished the second day at 87/7, after grouping India for 416 runs in the first innings.

The Windies started well, as Bumrah had John Campbell (2) held in the hands of wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant with just 10 runs on the board.

Opener Brathwaite was also sent to the Bumrah stand and Pacer threw his fifth wicket in the innings, reducing the Windies to 22/5. In the 15th round of entries, Bumrah left the park as he felt pain in his left calf.

Governor Jason Holder and Shimron Hetmyer found the Windies as they put on a stand of 45 chips, but their goalkeeper was stopped by Mohammad Shami as he pulled Hetmyer's sprigs (34), reducing Windies to 67/6.

With 20 minutes left on the second day, Kohli brought his strike bowler to the attack and Bumrah did not disappoint as he dismissed Holder (18) in the 29th round of the innings.

The Windies didn't lose the wicket anymore and the team finished the day 87/7, continuing India with 329 runs.
