He then trapped Shamarh Brooks plumb in front for a golden duck with an inswinging delivery. Roston Chase got a similar ball next up and was wrapped on the pads but the umpire gave it not out at first.Test hat-tricks with third victim given not-out, but decision reversed on DRS:Rangana Herath (SL v Aus, Galle, 2016)Moeen Ali (Eng v SA, The Oval, 2017)Jasprit Bumrah (Ind v WI, Kingston, 2019)#WIvIND #INDvWI— Rajneesh Gupta (@rgcricket) August 31, 2019Virat Kohli then decided to take the review as he was convinced that the ball had hit Chase’s pad first before making contact with the bat. The review turned out to be a masterstroke as replays confirmed Kohli’s judgement and showed three reds. The on-field umpire’s decision had to be overturned as a result.Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was the first Indian to pick up a Test hat-trick (vs Australia in Kolkata in 2001) after which left-arm pacer Irfan Pathan repeated the feat when he took three wickets off consecutive balls against Pakistan in Karachi in 2006. Pathan incidentally, was the first bowler in history to grab a hat-trick in the first over of Test cricket.advertisementJASPRIT BUMRAH HAS JUST TAKEN A HATTRICK!! #WIvIND LIVE https://t.co/EnMtwlLT27 pic.twitter.com/sgcFFUhSSwICC (@ICC) August 31, 2019Bumrah has now joined the elite list of Indian bowlers.

England spinner Moeen Ali was the last bowler who had bagged a hat-trick against South Africa at The Oval in 2017.Bumrah’s hat-trick reduced the West Indies to 13 for 4 inside 9 overs in their first innings. They currently trail India by 403 runs in the second Test. India were bowled out for 416 in the final session on Day 2 with Hanuma Vihari top-scoring with 111 runs while Ishant Sharma contributed with 57.Bumrah’s performance in this Test series so far has been nothing short of phenomenal. He had picked up a five-wicket haul in the final innings of the first Test to blow away the hosts on Day 4 and lead India to a 318-run victory in Antigua.That bowling performance saw him become the first Asian bowler to pick up a five-wicket haul in South Africa, England, Australia and West Indies. He also climbed nine places to No.7 with a career-high 774 points in the ICC Test rankings for bowlers as a result.All of Bumrah’s 59 wickets so far have come outside India as he is yet to play a Test match on home soil.Also Read | India vs West Indies: Ishant Sharma hits maiden fifty in 92nd TestAlso Read | India vs West Indies: Hanuma Vihari hits maiden Test century at Sabina ParkAlso See: For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
