Ind vs WI 2nd Test Day 2 Match – Cricket Highlights
India on top against West Indies after Vihari ton and Bumrah hat-trick
India 416 – Vihari 111, Kohli 76, Ishant 57, Holder 5-77
West Indies 87/7 * (33 ov) – Bumrah 6-16
After Vihari scored his first Test 100 and Ishant his initial Test fifty to lift India to 416 in the mid-day, Bumrah tore through the West Indies batting to tear out six of the seven wickets that fell in the session. The hat-trick includes Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase which ends up Bumrah being the 3rd Indian to take a Test hat-trick.
Opener John Campbell was the first one to Bumrah. He got on 2, having problem with Bumrah’s full deliveries when he got a much shorter one and caught on the back foot.
In his fourth over Bumrah got in the record books. The first victim was Darren Bravo to a wide outswinger, yet Bumrah made amends next ball. He intended it on the center stump, and also the away movement caught Bravo’s outside edge, which was taken by second slip. Shamarh Brooks comes in next, and Bumrah got this one to turn into the right-hander, striking him on the back pad. Brooks’ review of the decision was in vain, with ball tracker showing it would have hit leg stump. For his 3rd wicket, he relied on full delivery, swinging it right into Chase, and also struck him on the front toe. The lbw appeal was turned down, but Virat Kohli, standing at second slip, backed his reasoning and went for the review, which revealed three reds and validated a hat-trick for Bumrah.
Bumrah, for that reason, joined Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan on the listing of Indians with Test hat-tricks after that Bumrah left the field early due to pain.
A quick recovery followed with Jason Holder and Shimron Hetmyer including 45 runs for the sixth wicket, yet after that Mohammad Shami ended the possibility of Bumrah joining the rankings of Anil Kumble or Jim Laker, by having Hetmyer bowled with ouster.
Bumrah returned in his last spell of the day as he got Holder off his first ball, with the West Indies captain skying a wide delivery. Bumrah’s figures hold out 9.1-3-16-6.
Earlier, Vihari made 111 before being the last batsman out with 416 on the board. The Vihari-Ishant partnership yielded 112 runs for the 8th wicket, as well as dominated the post-lunch session, irritating West Indies, who had an advantageous early morning.
Holder had sent out back Rishabh Pant off the day’s first ball; however, Vihari, as well as Jadeja, steadied the innings with a sensible stand. Jadeja dropped as India most likely to lunch at 302 for 7, however after that Vihari and Ishant combined.
Vihari started the day on 42, fought hard after lunch, scoring two runs in the session’s first nine overs yet settled his strokes even as Ishant worked out in the session. He drove Shannon Gabriel and also Kemar Roach, outfitting the straight bat to collect a couple of borders, regardless of playing and also missing out on earlier one.
Vihari reached his maiden hundred by taking a sharp single midway through the session, and Ishant reached his maiden 50 three overs later.
At 414, Ishant holed bent on part-timer Brathwaite as well as India’s innings pertained to a swift close four runs later. The Vihari-Ishant stand had placed West Indies on the back foot at tea, with seven wickets falling in the final session India are on top.
