Cricket fraternity applauds Jasprit Bumrah’s maiden Test hat-trick – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Cricket fraternity on Sunday applauded India pacer Jasprit Bumrah‘s on his career maiden Test hat-trick against West Indies in the second Test.

The 25-year-old became the third Indian to achieve the feat in the longest format of the game. Previously Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan had taken hat-tricks in Test matches for India.

Bumrah dismissed Darren Dravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in successive balls in the 9th over of the Windies innings to claim the incredible feat.

Harbhajan had achieved the feat against Australia in 2001 whereas Pathan had taken a hat-trick against Pakistan in 2006.

Bumrah returned with the figure of 6-16 in his 9.1 overs. After the spell, he tweeted, “A day I won’t forget .”

India batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and former spinner Harbhajan Singh hailed Bumrah for his brilliant bowling spell.

“Great first hundred by @Hanumavihari and an incredible hat-trick by @Jaspritbumrah93.. Indian cricket at its best! #INDvsWI,” Dhawan tweeted.

“Sensational @Jaspritbumrah93 well done on your great spell.. welcome in the hattrick club so so so proud of you. Keep it going brother,” Harbhajan tweeted.

Irfan Pathan, who had taken a hat-trick against Pakistan in 2006, also congratulated the Indian pacer.

Former West Indies bowler Ian Bishop took to Twitter and wrote, “Jasprit Bumrah is a once in a lifetime talent.”

“The Carribean islands have seen so many fast bowling greats dish out their fury, and this performance from @Jaspritbumrah93 would have made each of those greats extremely happy. Wow just wow. #WIvIND,” Ashwin tweeted.
