Rohtak:The newly built Ch Bansilal Cricket Stadium witnessed the first hat-trick in first class cricket today when Joginder Sharma came up with a magnificent seven-wicket haul to bowl out Andhra Pradesh for 168 in their second innings of the Ranji Trophy match against Haryana.

Chasing a victory target of 242, Haryana were 92 for three in their second essay and the hosts require another 150 runs to win the match with seven wickets in hand.

The day clearly belonged to Joginder who had the Andhra batsmen running for covers.

After he ran through the top order, removing four frontline batsmen, the medium pacer removed three wickets in the last three balls of the 57th over.

He first castled RVC Prasad in the fourth ball of the over, trapped D kalyankrishna in the next delivery and signed off by bowling YL Kishore to complete his hat-trick which also dropped curtains on Andhra's second innings.

Joginder's second innings bowling figures read 22-8-41-7 and he thus completed an 11-wicket haul in the match.

Chasing a victory target of 242, Haryana, however, lost three early wickets -- including opener Sumit Sharma and Sunny Singh -- to reach 92 in 50 overs.
