This is how 3 wickets fell in 4 balls.
Kagiso Rabada, who came to the 19th over, knocked out 3 wickets in 4 balls and defeated Hyderabad. If there was no wide ball after two wickets, Rabada would have got a hat-trick. Samad became the victim of Kagiso Rabada in the 19th over, under the pressure of putting a big shot under the pressure of runs. He scored 33 runs in 16 balls, hitting two fours and two sixes. On the next ball, Rabada also drove Rashid Khan (11). The hat-trick ball was wide, but on the very next ball he also drove Srivast Goswami (0). In this way, he changed the course of the match by taking 3 wickets in 4 balls. This shattered his rightful expectation.
