Harshal Patel becomes the third RCB to take a hat-trick in IPL

Although RCB looked favourites towards the end of the game, with Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya at the crease, Mumbai Indians still had a chance. However, Harshal Patel turned up with a brilliant over in which he picked the wickets of the duo along with that of Rahul Chahar. He did that in the space of three deliveries and hence, got to the first hat-trick of his career. In the process, Harshal Patel became the third RCB bowler after Praveen Kumar and Samuel Badree to achieve the feat.

Harshal Patel also holds the Purple Cap at the moment, and it would be hard for those below him to take it off him. RCB now look to have done enough for a place in the playoffs. However, they would want to build some momentum ahead of the important games.
