Hours after Rashid Khan completed his fifth hat-trick in T20 cricket, Melbourne Stars bowler Haris Rauf also accomplished the same feat. The 26-year-old Pakistan origin cricketer completed his hat-trick in the BBL clash between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder.
Rauf scalped the three wickets in the 20th over of the Thunder innings, when he went on to dismiss skipper Callum Ferguson, Matthew Gilkes, and Daniel Sams.
An iconic BBL moment.
