Deepak Chahar repeated his exploits on Tuesday, having become the first Indian men cricketer to take a hat-trick in the T20Is, on Sunday.

But this time, the 27-year-old’s heroics came during the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy while playing for Rajashtan against Vidharbha.

Bowling first after losing the toss, Chahar’s efforts helped Rajastha to restrict Vidharba at 99/9.

He returned figures of 4/18, picking up his second hat-trick in as many games.

In the 13th over, Chahar dismissed Darshan Nalkande, Shrikant Wagh and Akshay Wadkar.

But Rajasthan lost the game by 1 run (Match reduced to 13 overs due to rain (VJD method)).

On Sunday, Chahar was India’s match-winner as he became the first male Indian bowler to take a hat-trick in international cricket.

Chahar completed his hat-trick by dismissing Mustafizur Rahman and Aminul Islam in the first two deliveries of the final over, having already dismissed Shafiul Islam in the final delivery of the 18th over.

He also registered a world record haul of six for seven as India won the third and final T20I against Bangladesh, which was also the decider.

India won the series 2-1, their first T20I series win at home this season.
