West Indian cricketer Samuel Badree gave RCB a great chance to win the match against Mumbai Indians on Friday.
He took a hat-trick in the third over of the Mumbai Indians innings that saw them slump to 7/4. He took the wickets of Pathiv Patel, Mitchell McClenaghan and Rohit Sharma of successive deliveries to claim a hat-trick.
He also bagged his fourth wicket of the in-form Nitish Rana. He ended with match figures of 4/9. But it wasn’t enough to guarantee a RCB win.
In the process, Badree became the second West Indian to take a IPL hat-trick. Sunil Narine of Kolkata Knight Riders is the first West Indian to take a hat-trick in the IPL. Playing for KKR, Narine took a hat-trick against KXIP in 2013.
