The India pacer finished with figures of 6/16 as West Indies were reeling at 87/7 at stumps on Saturday, trailing India’s 1st innings score by 329 runs.Sensational @Jaspritbumrah93 well done on your great spell.. welcome in the hattrick club so so so proud of you.

The highly-rated pacer was at it again in Jamaica as he rattled the West Indies top-order with pace and swing.While he removed the likes of John Campbell and Darren Bravo with unplayable in-swingers in Antigua, Bumrah gave the two West Indies left-handers a dose of out-swing masterclass and left them clueless on Saturday.Bumrah’s control over his deliveries, ability to swing the ball both ways at will is earning him a lot of praise.Former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop told Sony Ten 1 that he rates him along with Jofra Archer as the top best young fast bowlers going around.advertisement”Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer are by far the best young fast bowlers. At a distant third can be Kagiso Rabada,” Bishop said.Ian Bishop took to Twitter and wrote: “Jasprit Bumrah is a once in a lifetime talent.”Jasprit Bumrah is a once in a lifetime talent.Ian bishop (@irbishi) August 31, 2019India off-spinner R Ashwin, who was watching Jasprit Bumrah’s masterclass from the dressing room in Jamaica, took to Twitter and said legendary West Indies pacers would have been proud of Bumrah’s efforts in the ongoing series.”The Carribean islands have seen so many fast bowling greats dish out their fury, and this performance from @Jaspritbumrah93 would have made each of those greats extremely happy.
