New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's hat-trick was specifically mentioned in the speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the BJP office after the election results in five states on Sunday, but incidentally, the word also became a topic of discussion in the fifth T20 match played between India and Australia at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Hat-trick off the field, hat-trick on the field too! While PM Modi mentioned a possible hat-trick in the 5 elections, Bihar's medium pacer Mukesh Kumar, who came to bowl in his second spell, just missed it a bit.

.. They become history.

In the 17th over of the innings and in his third over, Mukesh Kumar took two consecutive wickets on the third and fourth balls, first he caught Matthew Short at the hands of Gaikwad, then on the next ball, he bowled Dwarshuis and blew his parrots. Dwarshuis once didn't know what had happened. He was forced to play on the backfoot and the ball took the edge of his bat and fell into the wickets. From here, millions of fans have a hat-trick in the words of PM Modi's speech. The hat-trick started echoing, but right next ball, Nathan Ellis tried his best to get out by rotating the bat. Captain Suryakumar had also positioned himself in the slip, but the ball could not match the bat and the hat-trick could not be made. Mukesh Kumar missed out on creating history for himself.

Something like this happened in the series

Mukesh played four matches in the five-match series against Australia. In these, captain Suryakumar bowled 16 overs of the entire quota. Mukesh could not play a match due to his marriage. In these four matches, Mukesh took 9 wickets at an economy run-rate of 12.4. With this performance, he assured the management that he is ready to take the responsibility of swingers Bhuvneshwar and Shami in the coming time.
