The Indian Premier League (IPL) almost witnessed another hat-trick from veteran spinner Amit Mishra, well almost. In the match between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi in the ongoing IPL 2019, Mishra was seen bowling at his best as he ended up with sensational figures of 3 wickets in four overs while giving away just 17 runs at an economy of 4.25. But it could have been an unforgettable outing for Mishra had he picked up the hat-trick against RR.
It was DC speedster Trent Boult who dropped a relatively easy catch of Krishanappa Gowtham in what was a hat-trick chance for Mishra. Had Boult grabbed that skied shot by Gowtham, Mishra would have completed his fourth hat-trick in IPL history. Mishra is the most successful Indian bowler in the history of IPL with as many as 155 wickets in 145 matches in the cash-rich tournament.
