According to sources jasprit bumrah became the third Indian bowler to take a hat-trick in Test cricket after he dismissed Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase off consecutive balls on Day 2 of the second Test between india and West Indies. Meanwhile Bumrah's historic feat came in the ninth over, he went on to take three more wickets to finish Day 2 with a six-wicket haul. Shimron Hetmyer who fell to Mohammed Shami was the only man to fall to another bowler on Saturday in Kingston as West Indies were reduced to 87/7 in reply to india's 416.
Reportedly Bumrah had started the innings with the wicket of opener John Campbell in the seventh over. Meanwhile in his next over, he started with a wide outswinger that Bravo left alone and the next was a length delivery that was pitched on middle stump swinging away. Bravo was forced to play and got a high edge that flew to K.L. rahul at second slip, who did well to take the low catch.
Moreover this is only the 44th instance of a bowler taking a hat-trick in the history of Test cricket and the third time that an Indian has done so. Perhaps harbhajan singh did so in the historic Eden Gardens Test between india and australia in 2001 when he got Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne off consecutive deliveries. Apparently Irfan Pathan then dismissed Salman Butt, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf in the third Test of india's 2005/06 tour of pakistan in Karachi.
