Which player does not dream of performing brilliantly in the debut match? But only someone gets success in making their debut match memorable in international cricket. The name of the player we are talking about today is also included in those selected cricketers. This player is an off-spinner and in the second innings of his debut test match, he made his victim six batsmen of the opposing team. The amazing thing is that such a record is recorded in the name of this player, which many times the entire career falls short in making it. This player also has a birthday on this day i.e. 5th August. Come, let’s lift the curtain from the name of this giant.
Actually, we are talking about Bangladesh Cricket Team’s veteran Sohag Gazi. Ghazi was born on 5 August 1991. He made his Test debut against the West Indies in 2012, taking six wickets in the second innings. Not only this, in October 2013, in the match against New Zealand, he made history by performing a charismatic performance. Sohag Ghazi played an unbeaten 101 against the Kiwi team, scoring his first Test century. In reply to New Zealand’s 469, Bangladesh scored 501 runs in this match. After this Ghazi also showed fire with the ball and took a tremendous hat-trick. He completed the hat-trick by dismissing Corey Anderson, BJ Watling and Doug Bracewell. With this, he became the first player in Test cricket history to score a century in the same match and also scored a hat-trick.
