Sohag Gazi makes a world record by claiming a Test hat-trick and an unbeaten century

Bangladeshi spinner, Sohag Gazi, has played a very important role with both the bat and ball behind the draw match of the first Test against New Zealand at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong.
Because of his all-rounder performance, the host nation could make a tough competition against the touring team. With the bat, he scored an unbeaten 101 and with the ball he took six wickets including a hat-trick.
The 22-year-old off-spinner took the wickets of Corey Anderson, Bradley-John Watling and Doug Bracewell in second, third and fourth balls of the 85th over.
With this performance, he made a world record of getting a century and a hat-trick in a Test match. He was announced “Player of the Match” for his great performance.
He has also become the second Bangladeshi bowler to claim a Test hat-trick after Alok Kapali, who achieved the feat against Pakistan in 2003 when he dismissed lower orders- Shabbir Ahmed, Danish Kaneria and Umar Gul in three consecutive deliveries.
