Bumrah indebted to Kohli like Bhajji is to Sadagopan Ramesh

The Turbanator Harbhajan Singh said that Bumrah will always be indebted to Virat Kohli like he is to Sadagopan Ramesh after the later’s hat-trick against the West Indies in the ongoing Test series. While Bumrah is the only third Indian to get a Test hat-trick, Harbhajan Singh was the first to get a hat-trick in Test against the mighty Australians during their peak.

Harbhajan said he will always be indebted to Sadagopan Ramesh for taking a very difficult catch at forward-short-leg 18 years ago. Harbhajan took the wickets of Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, and Shane Warne.

After Harbhajan, Irfan Pathan became the second Indian to take a Test hat-trick. Irfan took the wickets of Salman Butt, Younis Khan, and Mohammad Yousuf to reduce Pakistan to 0/3 in the 2006 Test in Karachi.

It was Kohli who was too convinced to go for the DRS that helped Bumrah script history, said Harbhajan.
