He credits Kohli for his Test hat-trick feat in Jamaica Test
Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah became the third Indian to score a Test hat-trick on the second day of the Jamaica Test. Bumrah credits India team captain Virat Kohli for his new record in cricket. During the game, the umpire turned down the appeal for a hat-trick and Bumrah did not ask for a review. It was Kohli who told the umpire about it, causing the decision to be reversed and Bumrah eventually getting the record.
‘Actually I didn’t know. I was not very sure of the appeal’, said Bumrah after the game. ‘I thought it was bat (first), so I didn’t appeal so much. But it was a good review in the end, and I think I owe the hat-trick to the captain’. After dismissing Darren Bravo and Shamarh Brooks on his ninth over, Bumrah managed to rap Roston Chase on his pads with an inswinging delivery.
Bumrah also talks about the team’s communication on the field, as the team continues to dominate their West Indies tour this year. The team also won the first Test match against West Indies by 318 runs. ‘There’s a lot of communication that goes on the field as well. When I'm getting wickets, it's somebody else's job to create pressure, and when somebody else is getting wickets, [it's] my job is to create pressure’, said Bumrah.
