Here're the records scripted by Jasprit Bumrah following Windies hat-trick
Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been on a roll in the ongoing Test series against Windies, having claimed 12 wickets in two matches so far, with the second Test yet to get over. Meanwhile, he claimed a hat-trick in the ongoing second Test on Saturday. As a result, he has also scripted a number of records, as we take a look at them.
Bumrah rips off Windies top-order for maiden Test hat-trick
Bumrah has been too good for the Windies batsmen, having claimed 6/16 in the first innings. The hat-trick started with the dismissal of Darren Bravo, who fell for four, after being caught by KL Rahul in the slips. It was followed by Shamarh Brooks (0), who was trapped leg-before, and the next delivery saw Roston Chase getting dismissed in a similar fashion.
Bumrah scripts three records with the hat-trick
Bumrah, now, has managed to script three records in relation to this hat-trick: He is now the third Indian after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan to claim a Test hat-trick. He's also the third bowler to claim a Test hat-trick in Windies after Jermaine Lawson and Matthew Hoggard. He is also the second Asian after Nuwan Zoysa to claim a Test hat-trick outside Asia.

As for his other records, this was his fifth five-wicket haul in the format, while he became the quickest Indian pacer to claim a five-for, in 5.5 overs, after opening the bowling. He is also the 44th Test cricketer to claim a hat-trick.
