Indian pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah etched his name in record books when he claimed a five-wicket haul during Day 2 of ongoing second Test against Sri Lanka.

Bumrah, who had ended Day 1 with three wickets to his credit, removed Lasith Embuldeniya in the third over of the second day before dismissing Niroshan Dickwella (21) to get to his fifth wicket. It took Bumrah merely 10 overs to reach the feat, and it was his maiden five-wicket haul on Indian soil.

Further, it was Bumrah’s eighth 5-wicket haul in 29 Tests – the joint-most for an Indian seamer after as many matches alongside legendary Kapil Dev.

Best figures for an Indian seamer vs Sri Lanka

5/54 – Ishant Sharma Colombo SSC 2015
5/72 – Venkatesh Prasad Kandy 2001
5/72 – Zaheer Khan Mumbai BS 2009

Apart from Bumrah, Ravichandran Ashwin (2/30) and Mohammed Shami (2/18) bagged a couple of scalps each, while Axar Patel (1/21) took one wicket as the hosts bundled out Sri Lanka for 109 runs, taking a 143-run first-innings lead in the pink ball game in Bengaluru.

He’s put in so many tough stints abroad. Absolutely deserving of a first 5 wicket haul in Test cricket at home Jasprit Bumrah. Top class as always.

Bumrah now has 8 5 wicket hauls in 29 tests. This number is equal to the 5 wicket hauls that Morkel(86), Gillespie (71), Siddle (67), Harmison (63) have had in their respective careers and all of them have played more than twice the tests which Bumrah has played.
