I owe you my hat-trick: Jasprit Bumrah tells Captain Virat Kohli

KINGSTON: Star Indian Pacer Jasprit Bumrah said he owes his triplet to the captain virat Kohli since the latter decided to review a decision of LBW even when he was not sure of it. Bumrah became the third Indian bowler on Saturday to get a hat-trick in the test cricket, as India reduced the West Indies to 87/7 on day 2 of the second test at Kingston.

The third hat-trick gate was that of Roston Chase, but the referee rejected India's initial appeal against him for LBW. While Bumrah didn't seem convinced about it, Kohli went to the review and it turned out that the ball was hitting the stumps.

I wasn't quite sure of the appeal. I thought he hit the mark. But in the end it was a good review. I think I owe the 'hat-trick' to the captain, Bumrah said in a conversation with Kohli in bcci. TV.



Kohli said he and Vice Captain Ajinkya Rahane were sure that Chase was late for the dance.

I asked him what he thought. He thought the hitter had hit him, so the only question was whether the ball was in line and said everything was in front of the gate. Jinks and I thought he was late on the ball, so he went to the review and turned out to be on the right side, Kohli said.

Bumrah also told Kohli that bowlers continue to help each other on the field, which has contributed significantly to their recent success.

There is a lot of communication in the field. When I get wickets, it's someone else's job to create pressure and vice versa. We try to help each other when things are not going well, so there is a good relationship. Bumrah said.

Bumrah ended the day with six wickets. He had taken a room in the second inning of the first Test in Antigua.
