Did not know that I took a Hat-trick

At the post-match presentation, Curran said that he didn’t know that he had taken a hat-trick.

“I didn’t really know (about the hat-trick). The crowd got really loud, I couldn’t hear myself. Ash told me what to do. Ryan Harris was standing at the third man region. Against the local batters, I had to ask our players, “Where does he hit?”. Shami got two amazing overs in the end which helped,” Curran.

 

 “Great win for the guys. I tried to put a performance for my team. Luckily enough, we scraped to 166, all the six bowlers were excellent. I have worked a lot on my batting over the last few months. I like to work hard on my batting, bowling and fielding,” he said.

Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Capitals: Match Summary

 

Chasing 167 for victory, the Capitals looked to be cruising at 144/3 in the 17th over with Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram at the crease. But they lost seven wickets for eight runs as the Kings XI bowlers ripped through the batting line-up.

Pant lost his wicket trying to smash the ball down the leg side when Mohamed Shami castled the 21-year-old for 39 before Ravichandran Ashwin sent Chris Morris back with a direct hit to run him out in the very next ball.

 

Ingram did not last long either as he holed out to long off to give Curran his first wicket. The left-arm bowler then cleaned up the tail with a hat-trick spread across two overs.

He first had Harshal Patel caught behind before getting Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Lamichhane both bowled off the first two balls of the final over to send the Mohali crowd into raptures.

Earlier, Kings XI was put into bat by the Capitals and scored 166/9 in their allotted 20 overs, with David Miller scoring 43 and Sarfaraz Khan chipping in with 39. Morris picked up three wickets while Rabada and Lamichhane got two each.
