Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah showcased his brilliance in the recently concluded Test series against West Indies. In the series, he picked up two five-wicket hauls, and also became the third Indian to take a hat-trick. Whereas the heroics of Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga in the 3rd T20I against New Zealand on Friday in Pallekele left even the Indian seamier stunned.
To everybody's surprise, the 38-year-old bowler picked up four big wickets in four balls, becoming the only bowler in history to do so both in ODIs and in T20Is. While tweeting, Bumrah wrote: “History maker #Malinga. Simply amazing,” and gave the bowler a five-star for his historic performance.
Malinga started the attack by dismantling Munro’s stumps, which he pulled off with the help of a fast yorker. Rutherford was the next to be finished. He crashed into his stumps and De Granhomme was Malinga’s third victim and then was the turn of another player Ross Taylor who was adjudged LBW at last.
