Sunil Narine takes a hat-trick in IPL 6

Mohali, Apr 16: Kolkata Knight Riders' spinner Sunil Narine became the first bowler in IPL 2013 to take a hat-trick and overall this was 10th hat-trick in six years of IPL.


Narine claimed a hat-trick in Tuesday's game against Kings XI Punjab. The 'mystery' spinner dismissed David Hussey, Azhar Mahmood and Gurkeerat Singh in successive deliveries.

Bowling the 15th over of the innings and his second, Narine started with conceding two runs and a single to David Miller. In the third ball, Hussey played out a dot ball.

In the final three deliveries of the over, Narine got Hussey caught behind by Manvinder Bisla while Mahmood was caught and bowled. In the hat-trick ball, Gurkeerat was clueless as he was beaten comprehensively and bowled.

In IPL, there have been 10 hat-tricks including today's. Narine is the 8th bowler to take a hat-trick. Yuvraj Sing and Amit Mishra are the only two to have taken hat-trick twice each.
