A five-wicket haul, including a hat-trick, made Andrew Tye’s IPL debut one of the most memorable ones. The Gujarat Lions medium pacer gave away just 17 runs in four overs, restricting Rising Pune Supergiant’s total to 171 on Friday.
In the final over of Pune's innings, which yielded only four runs, the Aussie dismissed Manoj Tiwary (31), Ankit Sharma (25) and then Shardul Thakur (0) off consecutive deliveries.
The Gujarat Lions all-rounder provided the second hat-trick of the day after Royal Challengers Bangalore's Samuel Badree got one in the afternoon game against Mumbai Indians.
Tye bagged five wickets (5/17), the first in this edition of the IPL, registering the best bowling figures in this season so far.
