An Elegant Performance to remember



An allround performance by Gazi.Picture-SG

Despite building an unimaginable reputation at the beginning of his career a young cricketer has been lost after a great performance.

On this day at 2013 In the Test match against New Zealand in Chittagong, Bangladesh’s young off-spinner Sohag Gazi scored an unbeaten 101 and pick up a hat-trick at the same game and the first man to do it twice in first-class matches.

He is the only batsman after Shakib Al Hasan to score a century and take more than five wickets in a Test match. Gazi became the 29th cricketer to achieve the rare distinction of scoring a Test century and grabbing a five-wicket haul in the same game.

In the first innings Gazi came down into the crease as no eight batsman and score century with the tail-enders.

And he took a six for in New Zealand’s second innings, which included a hat-trick.

Gazi became the second Bangladeshi to pick up a hat-trick in a Test match after Alok Kapali in 2003 against Pakistan.

During the hat-trick over Gazi had Corey Anderson leg-before, BJ Watling caught-behind and Doug Bracewell caught in the slips.

Gazi thus became the first cricketer since 1877 to hit a ton, grab a five-for and record a hat-trick.

He became the fourth cricketer to score a half-century, take a five-wicket haul and captured a hat-trick.

In 2014 ICC banned Ghazi from all forms of international cricket for violating bowling action rules.
