Hat Tricks in IPL History Updated : From Balaji to Chahal 

Hat Tricks in IPL History Updated

In the IPL, a bowler’s outstanding performance can quickly alter the result of a match, particularly if they are able to take a hat-trick during the innings. The opposition team may suffer a serious setback if a player scores a hat-trick because it will be challenging for them to recover from the quick loss of wickets.

Hat-tricks are, however, rather uncommon in the IPL, with some seasons going by without a bowler recording even one. On the other hand, there have been seasons where several bowlers have taken hat-tricks. A complete list of all hat tricks in IPL history will be provided in this page.

Hat Tricks in IPL History Updated

Lakshmipathy Balaji created IPL history as he completed the first-ever hat trick. He had a strong performance against the Punjab side in the first season, capturing five wickets for 24 runs in four overs. Balaji’s hat-trick was a crucial turning point in the tournament’s history and established a bar for bowlers to shoot towards in the future. Nevertheless, Amit Mishra and Makhaya Ntini also took hat-tricks that season, therefore he wasn’t the only bowler to accomplish this feat.

Yuvraj Singh, a batter by nature, shocked everyone in 2009 by taking two hat tricks while competing for the Punjab side. His outstanding exploits that season enabled Punjab to get to the semi-finals. During the same season, Rohit Sharma, who is currently among the finest batsmen in the world, also claimed a hat-trick.
