IPL Snippets: Yet another hat-trick!
When IPL was launched, it was expected to be a batsman’s game. ‘A dot ball will be pure gold,’ gushed one commentator non-stop before the beginning of the first season. Well, we’ve had a gold-rush then and dot balls are quite common.
So far hat-tricks have also become common affairs too. Axar Patel took the tournament’s 14th hat-trick in a match winning cause. In fact he took four wickets in five balls to sink Gujarat Lions’ chase against Kings XI Punjab. And they were all good wickets in the form of Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Dinesh Karthik and Sir Ravindra Jadeja. Amit Mishra has three IPL hat-tricks, all-rounder Yuvi has two and even a rank part-timer like Rohit has one!
