Harshal Patel - 3rd Rcb Bowler To Take Hat-trick In IPL And Against MI As Well

Harshal Patel‘s hat-trick powered the Royal Challengers Bangalore to a 54 run victory over holders Mumbai Indians in the IPL match on Sunday.

Patel, the Indian spinner with medium-pace bowling skills was able to take out three wickets on Hardik Pandya (3), Kieron Pollard (7) and Rahul Chahar (0) before returning for a hat-trick. He finished his first IPL match in style by delivering 4/17.

I was thinking if the batters can’t pick my slower balls then the bowlers also will find it difficult to spot (referring to Rahul Chahar’s wicket that got him the hat-trick),” said Patel after the match. “I just bet on that. This was my sixth time being on a hat-trick and I finally got one, so pretty happy.

RCB skipper Virat Kohli added: “What Harshal did tonight was unbelievable.

Patel became the 17th bowler in IPL history to take a hat-trick. Amit Mishra holds an unmatched record for scoring three hat-tricks and Yuvraj Singh also bagged two, while 15 other bowlers, including Patel, have taken one each.
