Afghanistan spin sensation Rashid Khan continues to impress in the ongoing season of the Big Bash League (BBL). In an important contest against Sydney Sixers, the spin wizard registered his third hat-trick in T20 cricket.
He claimed crucial wickets of James Vince, Jack Edwards and Jordan Silk to rock Sydney’s chase. Using two overs to complete the hat-trick, Rashid ended up with figures of 4-0-22-4. Earlier, Adelaide batted first after being invited to do so – a decision which allowed Sydney to keep Adelaide to 135 runs.
While he allowed Adelaide to record a grand comeback in the game, they never had enough runs on the board. Moreover, a hat-trick of boundaries from Josh Hazlewood aided Sydney to overcome the scare. Rashid was elated to register an elite bowling outing, but the opposition had the last laugh as Adelaide suffered their third defeat of the tournament.
