Jasprit Bumrah takes a hat-trick, becomes the third Indian to achieve this feat

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has become the third Indian bowler to take a hat-trick in Test cricket after off-spinner Harbhajan Singh (2001, Australia) and fast bowler Irfan Pathan (2006, Pakistan). The 25-year-old achieved the feat by dismissing Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in consecutive deliveries in his fourth over during West Indies' first innings in the second Test.

 
Coming to the second test match, India is in the drivers seat who scored a mammoth 416. Thanks to Hyderabadi lad, Hanuma Vihari’s maiden test century and Ishanth’s crucial support with a half-century. Virat Kohli scored 76 and once again Rishabh Pant disappointed with just 27 runs to his name. West Indies skipper Holder took a fifer.
 
West Indies gave up the battle on the second day as Bumrah's hat-trick rattles Windies top-order. Five-wicket haul for Bumrah left Windies in tatters. The first five scalps of the West Indies belong to Bumrah and Shami knocked out Hetmeyer. Bumrah ended the day with another wicket. Bumrah finished his spell with an outstanding figure - 16/6 in just 9 overs. West Indies finished the day with 87/7 with debutants Cornwall and Hamilton increase.
