Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner Samuel Badree has become first bowler to take hat-trick in Vivo Indian Premier League 2017. Playing his first match for RCB, Badree achieved this feat when he dismissed Mumbai Indians top three batsmen Parthiv Patel, Mitchell MacClenaghan and Rohit Sharma on successive delivers on his second and third over of the innings.
