The Indian cricket team is on its way to clean sweep the test series against West Indies as our players performed superbly in all the segments of the second test match which is being played at Sabina Park, Jamaica. The start of the day 2 was not good for team India as Rishabh Pant got out early at the score of 27 and Ravindra Jadeja also lost his wicket even before he was able to settle at the crease.
However the good thing was that Ishant Sharma batted beautifully and provided good support to Hanuma Vihari. While Ishant scored a half-century, Hanuma scored his maiden century and helped team India in putting a huge total of 416 on the board.
The hosts were never comfortable against the Indian bowling but the highlight was the hat-trick of Jasprit Bumrah who dismissed Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in three consecutive deliveries.
After this hat-trick, Bumrah has become the third Indian bowler to take a hat-trick and the third bowler to get a hat-trick in West Indies. He tore apart the West Indian batting line-up as he took six wickets in total and West Indians were 87/7 at the end of day 2.
The Indian cricket fans and former cricketers were all praises for Jasprit Bumrah and some fans were of the opinion that the manner in which Bumrah is bowling, history will remember him as the great Indian pacer of all time.
Jasprit Bumrah also took to Twitter to share his happiness with his fans and friends. He tweeted, “A day I won’t forget 💥🇮🇳🦁”

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.

सुबह सुबह नींद से उठते ही क्या शानदार खबर मिली! #बूम_बूम_बुमराह बहुत बधाई हो! @Jaspritbumrah93 ने हैट्रिक ली और वो भी सबीना पार्क में! जहां पर एक जमाने में वेस्टइंडीज के तेज गेंदबाज भारतीय बल्लेबाजों को डराकर रखा करते थे! वहीं India 🇮🇳 के बूमराह ने इंडीज की ईंट से ईंट बजा दी! 👏

If India wins this test match, it will also win the test series by 2-0 which will definitely be a good start to India’s campaign of World Test Championship.
