After coming agonizingly close to achieving a hat-trick on Tuesday against Gloucestershire, Hasan Ali finally claimed the hat-trick a day later against the Northamptonshire Steelbacks at the Edgbaston Community Sports Ground in the Second XI T20 competition.
Pakistan pacer registered impressive figures of 5 wickets for 14 runs, leading the Warwickshire Bears to a victory with a margin of 78 runs.
Hasan’s hat-trick was spread over two overs as he secured the wickets of Aadi Sharma and A Rao off the last two deliveries of the 17th over. The right-arm pacer dismissed top-scorer David Willey (79) on the first delivery of his next over to complete his hat-trick.
He also removed Alex Russell two balls later, making it four wickets in just five balls. Earlier in the innings, he had already taken the wicket of Chris Lynn.
