A Day Of Hat-Tricks In The Big Bash League

Although Rashid’s hat-trick was not enough to guide Adelaide Strikers to a victory, he completed his hat-trick by bowling Jordan Silk in the first ball of his following over.

On the other hand, Rauf’s hat-trick set the stage for Melbourne Stars to victory,

A day to remember for sub-continent stars and after the achievement of both players, it’s pleasurable to see the reactions on twitter.

Prior to this, Rauf also got a five-wicket haul. The Pakistani pacer has been in a very good form in the ongoing Big Bash League. He has picked up 13 wickets, including a fifer in just 4 matches of BBL for Melbourne Stars. Furthermore, not conceded more than 6 runs per over in 3 of those outings.

However, the selectors will definitely take a glance at Rauf’s recent performance while selecting the T20 team for this year’s World Cup. It’s a really good opportunity for young talent.

Melbourne Stars Are Back On Top

Haris was having a wicketless game before the magical final over. He picked up the wickets of Matthew Gilkes, Callum Ferguson, and Daniel Sams and ended his spell on amazing figures of 3/23 in four overs.

When he came to bowl his last over, Haris dismissed Sydney wicket-keeper batsman Matthew Gilkes (41) after the southpaw skied a delivery to Stars’ spinner Sandeep Lamichhane at fine leg. Rauf, who had made the limelight for his death threat celebration earlier in the league, was seen celebrating in a delicate manner at the MCG.

However, Haris’s hat-trick and Maxwell’s master class batting sends the Stars back to the top.
