Jasprit Bumrah became the third Indian to register a hat-trick in Test cricket as he demolished West Indian top order on day two of the second Test in Sabina Park.

Bumrah dismissed Darren Dravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in consecutive deliveries in the ninth over of the West Indies innings.

Bravo was caught at second slip, while Brooks and Chase both were trapped leg before wicket.

Thus he sit beside Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan who were the previous two to claim hat-tricks in Test cricket.

Harbhajan achieved the feat against Australia at the Eden Gardens, in Kolkata, in 2001, while Pathan took a hat-trick in the first over of the Test match against Pakistan in Karachi, in 2006.

Earlier in the day, India resuming at 254/5, lost all their wickets scoring 416 in the first innings after Rishabh Pant was dismissed on the first ball of the day.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja joined with overnight batsman Hanuma Vihari. Jadeja and Vihari added 38 runs before Rahkeem Cornwall dismissed Jadeja for 16. India were 302/7 at that time.

The visitors ended the innings at 336/7 at lunch without losing further wickets. After the lunch, Vihari in partnership with Ishant stretched the Indian innings further.

Ishant registered his half-century scoring 57 runs while Vihari brought up his maiden ton before being dismissed by Holder scoring 117 runs.

The day belonged to fast bowler Bumrah who claimed a fifer reducing West Indies to 87/7 after the end of second day’s play.

Bumrah, however, had to return to the pavilion for a brief period as he felt pain in his left calf in the 15th over.

Running only in one year into his journey in Test cricket, Jasprit Bumrah has established himself as one of the best fast bowlers in world cricket.
