Irfan Pathan and Harbhajan Singh, both of whom have taken hat-tricks for India in Test cricket, lauded Jasprit Bumrah for creating havoc in the West Indies batting line-up on Saturday while scripting the historic feat to join the duo in the elite list.
Bumrah’s took his maiden Test hat-trick against the Windies in the ongoing second Test here starring with figures of 16/6 from his 9.1 overs. While Harbhajan had achieved the feat against Australia in 2001, Pathan had taken a hat-trick against Pakistan in 2006.
Bumrah sent back Darren Dravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in successive balls in the 9th over of the Windies innings.
“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.
“Welcome to the #Hattrick club @Jaspritbumrah93,” Irfan too congratulated.
Former West Indies bowler Ian Bishop also took to Twitter and said: “Jasprit Bumrah is a once in a lifetime talent.”
West Indies were at 87/7 after wrapping up India at 416 runs in the first innings and trail by a massive 329 runs.
