IPL 2017: Andrew Tye First Debutant to Take Hat-trick in League

New Delhi: Australian medium-pacer Andrew Tye (17/5 in 4 overs) rewrote the history books after becoming the first player to pick a hat-trick on debut in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL).

Gujarat Lions' Tye picked up three wickets off successive deliveries in the last over of the Rising Pune Supergiant innings to claim his maiden hat-trick at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot on Friday.

Earlier, in the first match of the day, Royal Challengers Bangalore's Samuel Badree too picked up a hat-trick against Mumbai Indians, and this is the first time in the ten seasons of IPL that two bowlers picked up hat-tricks on the same match-day.

Before the hat-trick over, Tye had already picked up the prized scalps of in-form batsmen Rahul Tripathi and Ben Stokes in his previous spells. But in the last over of the innings, Tye's heroics helped Gujarat restrict Pune to 171/8 in their designated 20 overs.

On the first ball of his last over, Tye dismissed dangerous-looking Ankit Sharma, who was caught five inches inside the long-on boundary by Brendon McCullum. Manoj Tiwary became his second scalp of the over, as the right-hander couldn't read Tye's slower ball and was caught by Ishan Kishan at the square leg boundary.

But Tye's third wicket was the best of the lot as a slow-yorker completely deceived Shardul Thakur and he was clean bowled by the pacer. Tye could have had his fourth wicket in the over but an easy catch was grassed by Ravindra Jadeja of all people at deep mid-wicket.

Multiple records tumbled because of Tye's heroics against Rising Pune Supergiant. The Australian became the first bowler to pick a five-wicket haul in the tenth edition of the IPL. Tye's 17/5 is also the best figures by a bowler on debut in the tournament.

Tye's hat-trick was the first against Rising Pune Supergiant and it was also the first by a Gujarat Lions' player in the tournament.
