* Didnít know about my hat-trick: Perera PTI

Feb 13 (PTI) Sri Lanka pace bowler Thisara Perera said he did not realise that he had taken a hat-trick till his teammates informed him about it, as his entire concentration was on bowling in the death overs during the second T20 International against India in Ranchi. Although Sri Lanka lost the second game against India by 69 runs in Ranchi on Friday to concede the advantage, Perera stole the show by becoming the first Sri Lankan bowler to take a hat-trick in T20 Internationals.
