Team India currently has one foot across the finish line and with the way the match has panned out so far it looks like once again it will a cakewalk in the park for Virat Kohli led the side to win the match and complete series whitewash.

The second day of the 2nd Test belonged to pacer Jasprit Bumrah and Hanuma Vihari. While Vihari scored his maiden test ton, Bumrah once again ripped through the Windies batting lineup to become only the 3rd Indian bowler after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan to get a hat-trick in Tests 

Bumrah sent back Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in successive deliveries in the 9th over of West Indies' innings to enter the record books. He finished the day with figures of 6/16 as West Indies were reeling at 87/7on Day 2.Bumrah achieved the hat-trick amid a lot of drama.

The India pacer did not even appeal strongly after trapping Roston Chase in front in his hat-trick ball. On-field umpire Paul Reiffel gave it not out but a timely DRS call from captain Virat Kohli helped overturn the decision. 

In an interview for bcci.tv,  Jasprit Bumrah owed his first-ever Test hat-trick to Kohli for using the review at the right time. 

Team India skipper Virat Kohli turned presenter on Saturday in Jamaica as he interviewed  Bumrah after the pacer's heroic spell.  He asked him about how did he feel after claiming the hat-trick?  

"Actually, I didn't know. I was not very sure of the appeal. I thought it was bat (first). That's why I didn't appeal so much. It was a good review in the end. So I think, I owe that hat-trick to the captain" said Bumrah.

The young pacer also praised his fellow pacers and said that they try to help each other when the situation is tough.

"It's very good. There is a lot of communication that goes on the field as well. When I am getting wickets, the others will look to create pressure. When somebody else is taking wickets, my job is to create pressure. When there's no help from the wicket, what we can do. Ishant and Shami have played a lot of test matches. A lot of communication happens and ideas come in. We try to help each other. If things are not going well, we try to push each other," Bumrah told Kohli.
