    Deccan’s Christian charges to hat-trick

    Aussie all-rounder bags maiden ODI five-for, against SL

    By IPL desk
    Mumbai 02 March 2012
    In a fitting prelude to the IPL season, Deccan Chargers star international all-rounder Daniel Christian claimed a hat-trick in the last league match of the CB Series, against Sri Lanka.

    The Australian dismissed Thisara Perera – caught in the deep by Michael Hussey – and trapped Sachithra Senanayake and Nuwan Kulasekara lbw off consecutive balls to become the fourth Australian to clinch an ODI hat-trick.

    The three back-to-back strikes helped Christian achieve his first ODI five-wicket haul as he finished with figures of five for 31 in nine overs. Unfortunately for the burly all-rounder, his performance wasn’t enough to seal victory for Australia who lost the last-over thriller to Sri Lanka by nine runs.

    Christian was snapped up by the Chargers for USD 900,000 at the IPL Player Auction 2011. He was one of their leading players in the season, scoring 190 runs (strike-rate 119.49) and clinching 11 wickets (economy rate 7.66) in 14 matches.
