Shreyas Gopal became the second bowler to take a hat-trick in this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he achieved the milestone during the match between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Sam Curran achieved the feat earlier this season for Kings XI Punjab in their match against Delhi Capitals.

Hat tricks for RR:

A Chandila vs PWI Jaipur 2012

P Tambe vs KKR Ahmedabad 2014

S Watson vs SRH Ahmedabad 2014

S Gopal vs RCB Bengaluru 2019

Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers were off to a brilliant start to the innings but in the third over, Virat ended up gifting his wicket when he was caught in the deep by Liam Livingstone. De Villiers followed suit on the very next ball as he also mistimed his shot and was caught by Riyan Parag. On a hat-trick, Gopal bowled a googly to Marcus Stoinis and the Australia all-rounder could only manage to find Steve Smith at mid-off with his shot.

Shreyas Gopal vs RCB:

4-0-22-2 (Kohli, AB)

4-0-16-4 (AB, Parthiv, Mandeep, Moeen Ali)

3-0-12-3 (Kohli, AB, Hetmyer)

1-0-12-3 (Kohli, AB, Stoinis)

First bowlers to dismiss Kohli & AB on three instances in IPL

RR won the toss and opted to field against RCB before the match was delayed due to rain. A major part of the match was affected by the conditions and as a result, it was reduced to a five overs a side game.
