Having set West Indies a target of 468, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami struck once each to leave the hosts at 45 for 2 at Stumps.India vs West Indies, 2nd Test Day 3: Highlights | ReportNonetheless, it was Jasprit Bumrah’s heroic first innings spell that broke the back of West Indies’ batting line-up and thwarted any chances of a comeback from the hosts who had lost the 1st Test by 318 runs.Bumrah ran through the West Indies batting order, picking up 6 wickets, including his maiden Test hat-trick. It was also his second successive 5-wicket haul as he had jolted West Indies in the 2nd innings of the Antigua Test in which they were bundled out for 100.”The captain has a lot of confidence in you that gives you a lot of self belief. When you bowl, you can express yourself and try whatever you want to do. Not only me, each and every bowler is being backed by him so much. As a bowling unit, we are very happy and have the freedom to do whatever we want,” Jasprit Bumrah told reporters in Kingston, Jamaica on Sunday.advertisementVirat Kohli’s support was evident when the skipper went for a review during the dramatic hat-trick ball on Day 2 of the Jamaica Test. Bumrah did not even appeal after hitting Roston Chase on the front pad but Kohli took the review that eventually sealed the hat-trick after on-field umpire Paul Reiffel ruled it not out.Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah also said that the fast bowling group has put in a lot of hard work and looks to improve with every single outing.”We have done a lot of hard work. Last year, we played a lot of away matches. Lot of camaraderie is there, we back each other. Even if things are going well, we discuss how to get better. We have a good relationship, all of us. We want to get better every year,” Bumrah said.The fast bowler added: “Ishant has played a lot more cricket than all of us. Shami has also played a lot of cricket. I am the new guy and I try and ask them a lot of questions. I get to know what works in different conditions. If the wicket is not doing anything, what should we do. All this communication goes on, including the captain and the vice-captain.”Start to my Test career has been good: Jasprit BumrahJasprit Bumrah also added that he is happy with how his Test career has begun but maintained he has a lot of work to do while pointing out his upcoming challenge in India.Bumrah, who made his Test debut in 2018, has not played a single match in India yet. The right-arm pacer, who has picked up 61 wickets from just 12 Tests, has 5-wicket hauls in each of the overseas nation he has played so far.”It’s been just 10-12 matches. My career has just started. I am learning everyday and trying to improve. I have to play in India as well. This has been a good start,” Bumrah said.”I always look a team goals. If we win the match, it’s fine even if I don’t get a wicket. I always think about how I can contribute to the team’s success. Be it taking wickets or creating pressure.”Also Read | Virat Kohli ends West Indies tour with his 4th first-ball duck in Test cricketAlso Read | 1st T20I: Ross Taylor shines as New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by 5 wicketsAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
