Sam Curran picked up 4 for 11 including a hat-trick as Kings XI Punjab beat Delhi Capitals by 14 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 in Mohali on Monday.
The 20-year-old dismissed Delhi Capitals' Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Lamichhane to achieve the first hat-trick of the season.
Just after his team's victory, Curran was seen doing 'bhangra' moves with team's owner and Bollywood actress Preity Zinta.
Chasing 167 for victory, the Capitals looked to be cruising at 144/3 in the 17th over with Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram at the crease. But they lost seven wickets for eight runs as the Kings XI bowlers ripped through the batting line-up.
Pant lost his wicket trying to smash the ball down the leg side when Mohamed Shami castled the 21-year-old for 39 before Ravichandran Ashwin sent Chris Morris back with a direct hit to run him out in the very next ball.
Ingram did not last long either as he holed out to long off to give Curran his first wicket. The left-arm bowler then cleaned up the tail with a hat-trick spread across two overs.
He first had Harshal Patel caught behind before getting Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Lamichhane both bowled off the first two balls of the final over to send the Mohali crowd into raptures.
Earlier, Kings XI were put into bat by the Capitals and scored 166/9 in their allotted 20 overs, with David Miller scoring 43 and Sarfaraz Khan chipping in with 39. Morris picked up three wickets while Rabada and Lamichhane got two each.
