On Wednesday, Haris Rauf became the first Pakistani to grab a hat-trick in Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL).
Playing for Melbourne Stars, Haris took the three-wicket haul against Sydney Thunder, taking the wickets of Matthew Gilkes, Callum Ferguson and Daniel Sams and finished the figures of 3/23.
One of his deliveries clocked at 151.3km/hr.
As the bowler shines in the BBL, many people on social media were seen criticizing Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for not picking Haris in the international squad.
Haris belongs to Rawalpindi and worked as a salesman in a shop before Lahore Qalanders discovered him and his talent in 2017.
As per reports, Haris would just only earn 250 rupees a day and some extra money from playing tape-ball cricket for different clubs. Surprisingly, Haris had never played with a hard ball before he played for Lahore Qalanders. All of his cricket experience had been with a tennis ball.
