This bowler of India went to Pakistan and stunned the Pakistani batsmen and did such a feat in the very first over that every bowler wants to do but is unable to do.
Irfan Pathan. The name that was called the Sultan of Swing of India. Who was called the second Wasim Akram. There was a reason for this. The kind of swing shown by this left-arm fast bowler in his early career had surprised many batsmen. This bowler had made Pakistan dance with his swing. Pathan is the second bowler to take a hat-trick in Tests for India and this bowler did this work on this day i.e. on January 29 in the Test match played against Pakistan in Karachi.
Pathan had bowled the first over of this match and took a hat-trick in the very first over. This was also a record. Before him, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh had taken a hat-trick in Tests for India. Harbhajan did this work against Australia in the historic Test match played in Kolkata in 2000-01.
today’s big news
giants piled up
India toured Pakistan in 2006. The third match of the series was played at the National Stadium in Karachi. It started on 27 January. Indian captain Rahul Dravid won the toss in this match and decided to bowl first. The red gleaming ball was in Pathan’s hands. Left-handed batsman Salman Butt was in front. Not a single run came on the first three balls, but after that it was amazing. Pathan dismissed the bat first. Butt could not understand Pathan’s outgoing swing and went to play and was caught by Dravid in the slip.
After this came Pakistan captain Younis Khan. Pathan threw an inswing this time, for which Younis had no answer. The ball hit his pad and the umpire raised his finger. Mohammad Yusuf was the next batsman from Pakistan. Pathan blew Yusuf’s bats with his inswing and created history. Apart from this, Pathan made Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Akhtar his victims in this innings. Pathan took five wickets in the first innings.
