India pacer Jasprit Bumrah is currently the hot topic in the cricket circle following his hat-trick against West Indies on Day 2 of the 2nd Test between India and West Indies. At the end of play on day two, Bumrah returned with the figure of 6-16 in his 9.1 overs. Bumrah dismissed Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase in successive balls in the 9th over of the West Indies innings.

Bravo was sent back to the pavilion as Bumrah had him caught at the second slip. Brooks and Chase were caught plum in front and both were adjudged leg-before wicket. Virat Kohli's childhood coach and Delhi's bowling coach Rajkumar Sharma on Sunday said that Bumrah he is a great find for the national side and will serve the team for a long time.

"The way Bumrah is bowling, according to me he is the world's best fast bowler. His pace and swing are exceptional. The way he has grown from T20I bowler to ODIs and now to Test, he is a great find for India and will serve India for long," Sharma told ANI.

"Bumrah is a hard-working bowler and he is intelligent enough and knows where to pitch the ball. He knows his strength well. He was able to bowl inswing but now he has developed outswing as well," he added.

Bumrah became the third Indian to achieve the feat in the Test matches. He is now placed alongside Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan who have previously taken hat-tricks in Test matches for India. Harbhajan had achieved the feat against Australia in 2001 whereas Pathan had taken a hat-trick against Pakistan in 2006. 

Sharma also compared Bumrah to former South Africa pacer Dale Steyn and spoke about what makes him special.

"Apart from Dale Steyn, I have not seen any bowler delivering outswing at this pace in the last 10 years. He is eager to learn and that is why he is world number one bowler," .
In the recently concluded Cricket World Cup 2019, Bumrah was the highest wicket-taker for India as he bagged 18 wickets in nine matches.
