Big Bash League: Haris Rauf sparkles again with a Superb Hatrick”

The match will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on Wednesday, January 8 at 1:40 PM IST.

The 26-year old reaped rich rewards in the last over, having MattCrhew Gilkes caught at mid-wicket courtesy a slower ball.

In comparison, Daniel Sams has taken 15 wickets but taken part in all of the Thunder's eight games.

Pakistan pacer has been in fine form in the ongoing season of Big Bash League.

Playing for Melbourne Stars, Haris bagged the three-wicket haul against Sydney Thunder, taking the wickets of Matthew Gilkes, Callum Ferguson and Daniel Sams.

Maxwell's ability to bowl three unchanged overs for 19 runs at the start would have delighted the Stars' planners.

It seems that Rauf got the message from social media or the Stars" management as after picking his first wicket against Thunder, he used the "adaab' greeting, something which is common in Islam culture, to celebrate his wicket.

He is 2 in the list of top wicket-takers with 13 wickets in just four matches. Not only the fans but some big names including Australia's former rugby player Darryl Brohman also expressed his displeasure with the celebration style.

Despite the hat-trick of Rashid, the Adelaide Stikers suffered a two-wicket defeat at the hands of the Sydney team in this match.

Earlier, Haris Rauf created a stir when he came up with a celebration that mimicked throat slitting.

The Afghan then sent back Jordan Silk (16) in a similar fashion in the first ball of the 12th over to complete his hat-trick.
