4 wickets or 5 wickets against Delhi Capitals? Sam Curran is not sure

first_imgKings XI Punjab all-rounder Sam Curran admitted that he didn’t realise the moment he took the hat-trick but what he also wasn’t aware of, is the total number of wickets he ended up with in the match against Delhi Capitals on Monday.Before picking up his hat-trick, Curran had sent back the dangerous Colin Ingram for 38 in the 18th over. Curran ended up figures of 4 for 11 in 2.2 overs as Kings XI Punjab beat Delhi Capitals by 14 runs in Mohali.In a post-match interview with teammate Mandeep Singh, Curran opened up about his hat-trick and what was going through his mind in the final stages of the game.”Tell us about the 18th over, what were you thinking?” Mandeep asked Curran.”Shami bowled an amazing over. He was the one who turned the game our way, Ashwin’s run out of Morris was also amazing. The dismissal of Pant by Shami turned the game for us because they needed about 30 off 28 balls after that.”Boys turned up on the field as well, you (Mandeep) diving all around with a sore knee. How’s the knee now? Ready for the next game?” Curran said and then asked Mandeep about his availability for the next game to which the Indian cricketer replied in the affirmative.First HATTRICK of #VIVOIPL 2019 @CurranSMWhat a comeback this from @lionsdenkxipin as they win by 14 runs in Mohali. pic.twitter.com/cSnOG9o9z4IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 1, 2019Talking about his hat-trick, Curran said he wasn’t expecting to do something like that at all before the match.advertisement”No, not at all (on whether he was expecting to get a hat-trick).
