Amit Mishra conjured his third hat-trick of the Indian Premier League as Sunrisers Hyderabad scored a stunning 11-run victory against Pune Warriors at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune on Wednesday evening.
The India spinner is the first bowler to register three IPL hat-tricks - one each for Delhi Daredevils, Deccan Chargers and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Yuvraj Singh has produced two hat-tricks.
Mishra took an IPL career-best four for 19 as Pune lost four wickets in five balls to lose a low-scoring game that they had firmly in control. Mishra ensnared the Pune batsmen with a heady mix of leg-spins and googlies as the home team lost skipper Angelo Mathews, Bhuvneswar Kumar, Rahul Sharma and Ashok Dinda in the 19th over, chasing 120 for victory.
