Twitter Reactions: Fans in awe of Jasprit Bumrah as he takes his first hat-trick in International cricket.
After a stunning spell of fast bowling in the first Test match, Jasprit Bumrah has produced an even better awe-inspiring spell.
Forget that the opposition batsmen were from West Indies, this spell of unplayable deliveries would have troubled even the bests in the business. The spell had everything; right from bowling at a perfect length, to the ball swinging both ways, and with some exuberant pace.
Courtesy of his awe-inspiring spell, Jasprit Bumrah has joined the elite list of Harbhajan and Irfan Pathan to become the third Indian to take a hat-trick in Test cricket. Harbhajan and Irfan had achieved this feat against Australia and Pakistan respectively.
His three hat-trick preys were Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, and Roston Chase. He first bowled an unplayable outswinger to Dareen Bravo, whose thick edge carried to KL Rahul at first slip. He then bowled an astonishing inswinger to Shamarh Brooks, who had no clue of the ball, and was thus out leg before wicket.
Roston Chase, his hat-trick wicket too got a similar delivery, but was given not-out by Umpire Paul Reiffel. However, Virat Kohli looked confident, and he convinced Jasprit Bumrah to go for the DRS. The call stood right, and Jasprit Bumrah was awarded his first hat-trick in International cricket.
In case you missed the hat-trick, here’s the complete video of his hat-trick.
Jasprit Bumrah ended the day with a spell of 6-16 as West Indies were left reeling at 87-7. Team India, meanwhile had scored 416 in their first innings.
Fans, as usual, were in awe of Jasprit Bumrah after he took his first hat-trick in International Cricket. Here are some of the best Twitter Reactions on Jasprit Bumrah ‘s first hat-trick in International Cricket.
Jasprit Bumrah is a once in a lifetime talent.

Bumrah is playing his 12th Test. None ave been at home. He’s:
– Won India a Test at Wanderers
– Averaged 17 in Aus
– Helped win a Test in Nottingham
– Has a five-for in all four countries he’s played in
– Now has a hat-trick
There’s just no more exciting player in the game.
