Pakistani fast-bowler Haris Rauf made headlines as he became the first Melbourne Stars bowler to take a hat-trick in the Big Bash League (BBL). His performance against Sydney Thunder helped the side register a six-wicket win and go on top of the points table.
The 26-year-old’s display of fast-bowling and ability to take wickets was a topic of discussion on social media website Twitter. His match-winning performance was appreciated.

#BBL Harris Rauf is yet another amazing Pakistan fast bowling story of how streets of the country are throwing up great talent via tennis ball street cricket. Time to officially acknowledge this unorthodox system. Want tennis ball bowling to feature in Cricket academy curriculum.— Ramiz Raja (@iramizraja) January 8, 2020

Haris Rauf is not only about pace, he’s a very smart bowler. After he got hit for Six he shortened the length & roughed up the batsman & then deceived him with slower bowl in the next over. Complete death over specialist, deserves to be playing for Pakistan #BBL09 pic.twitter.com/8xZAaeqWXe— Asad Sial🥀 (@AsadHayatSial) January 8, 2020
