A hat-trick that went un-noticed
On the eve of Chennai's Match against Kolkata, MS Dhoni admitted their bowling attack wasn't the strongest.
As ironic as it may sound, Chennai is the only side to have claimed two hat-tricks in the Indian Premier League. First L Balaji and second Makhaaya Ntini made a hat-trick in the match against Kolkata on Sunday (May 18).
However, Ntini's hat-trick was robbed of its celebration and euphoria as IPL's third hat-trick went un-noticed.
Chennai Super Kings strike bowler Makhaya Ntini got an early break through by dismissing Sourav Ganguly, the Knight Riders skipper, in his third over. An exclusive delivery from Ntini rattled Debabrata Das's stumps after which Hussey's wickets tumbled soon.
However, the speedster had to wait for another 11 overs to add his name in the wickets column. The celebration lacked the joy of having accomplished a hat- trick as Ntini and his team mates were unaware of the achievement and the magic that had been just created.
