Mohammad Hasnain becomes youngest to bag a T20I hat-trick but Sri Lanka stun Pakistan

Posted On / /

Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain on Saturday became the youngest player to bag a T20I hat-trick.

Hasnain, 19 years and 183 days old, dismissed Sri Lanka Bhanuka Rajapaksa (32), Dasun Shanaka (17) and Shehan Jayasuriya (2) off successive deliveries to achieve the rare feat in the first T20I at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Biggest T20I win for Sri Lanka over Pakistan

However, Hasnain’s historic feat failed to prevent Sri Lanka registering their biggest ever win over Pakistan in T20Is. Opener Danushka Gunathilaka smashed a career-best 57 to make sure the hat-trick of the Pakistan teenager goes in vain as Sri Lanka imposed a match-winning total of 165-5 in 20 overs.

Isuru Udana (3-11) and Nuwan Pradeep (3-21) joined forces to bowl out the hosts for a paltry 101 in 17.4 overs.
