Kingston, Jamaica: India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah completed a hat-trick against West Indies on the second day of the second Test in Jamaica on Saturday.
Bumrah had left-hander Darren Bravo caught at second slip for four, before trapping both Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase lbw for golden ducks at Sabina Park in Kingston.
It was just the third Test hat-trick by an India bowler, following Harbhajan Singh against Australia in Calcutta in 2001 and Irfan Pathan against Pakistan in Karachi in 2006.
Bumrah, playing his 12th Test, had already dismissed opener John Campbell caught-behind for two before embarking on his hat-trick in his next over.
Bravo fell to a beautiful outswinger that he had little choice but to play, the ball flying to KL Rahul who took a sharp catch.
Brooks was next to go after he was trapped in front of middle stump and compounded the error by wasting a review.
Chase, by contrast, was given not out after being hit on the pad. However, India captain Virat Kohli decided to review and replays showed the ball would have struck leg stump and the decision was overturned.
As Bumrah was mobbed by his team mates, Chase trudged off with West Indies reeling on 13 for four in reply to India's first innings total of 416.
Bumrah was not finished as he soon had opener Kraigg Brathwaite caught-behind for 10, and the home team were on the ropes at 22 for five.
Bumrah had picked up five wickets for 10 runs off six overs.
Earlier last night, Hanuma Vihari completed his first Test hundred as India were dismissed for 416 in their first innings at tea.
On an afternoon of milestones Vihari was last out for 111 to Jason Holder, giving the West Indies captain his 100th Test victim and also allowing the fast-medium bowler to achieve his third five-wicket haul in as many Test innings at the ground.
Yet as well as Vihari played through five hours, he was overshadowed by Ishant Sharma who shot 57 to reach his first Test half-century in an eighth-wicket partnership of 112.
Dismissed for 93 on the last day of the first Test in Antigua, Vihari would not be denied on this occasion as the hosts wilted in the middle passage of the day’s play.
However, as assured as he was for most of his time in the middle, the 25-year-old right-hander still needed some luck to survive on a challenging pitch in a testing morning session.
Once again it was Holder who led the bowling effort for the West Indies with figures of five for 77 off 32.1 overs. He received good support from Rahkeem Cornwall, the debutant off-spinner claiming three for 107 off 41 consistent overs.
