New Delhi: The 2017 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) witnessed it's third hat-trick on Saturday when an unheralded Rising Pune Supergiant Jaydev Unadkat rocked Sunrisers Hyderabad innings.
Defending a low total of 148 against the defending champions, who were yet to lose a single match at home this season, Pune bowlers came to the party taking wickets at regular intervals.
But the star of the match was Unadkat, the 25-year-old from Porbandar. The Left-arm medium pacer finished with figures of 4-1-30-5, which included a perfect final over.
After taking the wickets of Yuvraj Singh and Naman Ojha in the 18th over, Unadkat conjured up a 0,W (Bipul Sharma),W (Rashid Khan),W (Bhuvneshwar Kumar),0,0 to set up the win.
