Jasprit Bumrah hat-trick: How Virat Kohli’s DRS call sealed the landmark wicket for India pacer

first_imgIndia pacer Jasprit Bumrah entered record books when he picked up his maiden Test hat-trick on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test against West Indies at Sabina Park in Kingston.After demolishing the West Indies with a five-wicket haul in Antigua last week, Jasprit Bumrah was at it again in Jamaica as he troubled the hosts batsmen with pace and movement.While out-swing and raw pace undid the West Indies batsmen in Antigua, it was in-swing that jolted the hosts top-order on Saturday in Kingstson. With a world-class display of fast-bowling, Jasprit Bumrah left the West Indies reeling at 13 for 4 inside the 9th over.India vs West Indies, 2nd Test Day 2: Highlights | ReportBumrah gave India an early breakthrough by getting John Campbell with a peach of an out-swinger that left the left-handed batsman clueless. He came back in his 4th over to register a hat-trick, thereby becoming only the third Indian bowler to do so after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan.Bumrah picked up Darren Bravo’s wicket in the 2nd ball of the 9th over with an out-swinger that kissed the edge of the left-hander’s bat before going straight to KL Rahul at slips. In the 3rd ball of the over, Bumrah pinned Shamarh Brooks in the front and umpire Paul Reiffel had no hesitation giving the young West Indies batsman OUT LBW. West Indies reviewed but lost it after replays showed 3 reds.However, in the hat-trick ball, Bumrah got the ball to tail into Roston Chase. Despite the ball going on to hit the pads, Bumrah was not convinced. In fact, Bumrah did not even appeal in the hat-trick ball. Paul Reiffel gave it NOT OUT after the slip cordon and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant went up in appeal.advertisementHowever, captain Virat Kohli, who has standing at the 2nd slip, quickly ran down to the center of the wicket and consulted with Jasprit Bumrah. Even before Bumrah responded, Kohli took the DRS and to everyone’s surprise got the decision overturned.To the naked eye, it did not look out and Sunil Gavaskar, commentating for Sony Ten 1, said the DRS call could have been an impulsive decision.”That would have gone down the leg-side. I think the excitement is what would have caused them to go for the review,” Gavaskar said before giving Virat Kohli a bit of credit for the wicket in Jasprit Bumrah’s hat-trick ball.”It could not go to a more special bowler,” Ian Bishop said on air.Jasprit Bumrah did not stop there as he went on to pick up a 6-wicket haul on Day 2 of the 2nd Test. Bumrah got the wicket of opener Kraigg Brathwaite with a full out-swinger. He walked off the pitch with a niggle but came back towards the end of the day to pick up his 6th — this time the big wicket of captain Jason Holder.Also Read | Jasprit Bumrah sets new Test record for India with 5 wickets in 5.5 oversAlso Read | India vs West Indies: Ishant Sharma hits maiden fifty in 92nd TestAlso See:last_img read more

Db Equipment’s Douchebag Is The Last Ski Bag You’ll Ever Need

first_img The Best Labor Day Deals on Outdoor Gear from REI, Backcountry, and More Editors’ Recommendations The 12 Best Laptop Bags for Men How to Use a Vibrating Foam Roller Like Tom Brady 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Know When you’re traveling in the winter, a good ski bag is more than a piece of luggage – it’s peace of mind while your precious powder boards make their way across thousands of miles of travel.You shouldn’t trust your investment in winter adventure – good powder skis are expensive – to a bargain bag or case. We discovered Norwegian brand Db Equipment, and their Douchebag Ski Bag earlier this season. Once we stopped giggling at the name (yes, they’re completely serious), we discovered that it is one of the most functional, well thought out ski haulers in the business.The Douchebag $249It used to be that with a ski bag you had to choose between protection and lightweight. Hard cases were the most practical for cross-continent hauls, but are incredibly unwieldy and heavy. Likewise, soft cloth cases are easy to use and store, but can leave your precious ski touring kit in pieces if you encounter the wrong layover.  The Douchebag solves this with their Rib Cage construction. A series of alternating foam and hard plastic reinforcements gives the bag enough padding and structure to protect skis, without adding extra weight.The Douchebag further adds to the pack body with an innovative hook and ladder-lock closure. Essentially, you can roll the top of the bag down from 200cm fully extended (long enough for all but extreme lengths of downhill racing skis) to a completely compressed roll. For skis shorter than the maximum, this rolled top adds padding for one end of your skis, while the reinforced, hard bottom securely holds the other end. The padding and length customization effectively keep your skis from rattling around, which is when most damage could be done.Access to the bag is easy, as two three-quarter length zippers open the top panel for easy loading and unloading of your skis and gear. We easily fit two pairs of skis and all our outerwear in the bag with no problems. If you’re traveling alone, with one pair of skis we even fit our boots and helmet (although we prefer to never check our ski boots). In short, the Douchebag is the easiest to use, and most well thought-out ski bag we’ve ever come across.The Hugger $159We regularly travel with camera gear (GoPros, DSLR, tripod, and lights), avalanche safety gear, and of course all our après ski luxuries. At thirty liters, the Hugger pack is the perfect add-on for the Douchebag. Built with the same Rib Cage constuction (without the plastic for carrying comfort), and sleek lines, it docks on the back of the larger ski bag for easy maneuvering through crowded airports. It swallows all our essentials from packable snow shovels and camera bags, to all our clothes for off-snow, after hours adventures. It also has a top pouch for travel documents and electronics, and a padded laptop case that will fit up a fifteen-inch Macbook with ease. The shoulder straps are padded well, making for easy carry around an airport or town. We’ve found it invaluable for more than just travel, as it fits our padded camera organizers well, and has full panel opening like the larger Douchebag.Whether you’re hauling your skis for a long weekend road trip, or a week long bucket list ski trip, the Douchebag should be first on your list of essential winter travel gear.
