Haris Rauf has stormed into the record books by becoming the first Melbourne Stars player to take a hat-trick in the Big Bash League (BBL). He achieved the extraordinary feat against Sydney Thunders in the final over of their innings.
While Rauf is yet to make his debut in international cricket, his consistent bowling heroics means he is likely to be fast-tracked into the national side soon. The indication for this turn of events was given by Pakistan’s bowling coach Waqar Younis, who claimed he is looking forward to work with Rauf in the near future.
The pace bowling dynamite is touted as a sure pick for Pakistan’s next T20I series. Rauf, who initially shot to prominence in the Pakistan Super League, has grown in stature and has inched closer to completing his dream of representing Pakistan.
