Two days ago, Deepak Chahar’s six wicket haul against Bangladesh helped India win the third and final T20 International by 30 runs. The pacer’s haul also included a hat-trick and BCCI celebrated the feat with a tweet.
Several Twitter users and other reports did a fact check for BCCI and reminded the cricket body of Ekta Bisht.
As Quint’s report said, Chahar is the first Indian man to achieve a hat-trick in the shortest format of the game. The first Indian, however, to do this was Ekta Bisht for the Indian Women’s Team.
She achieved the feat in 2012 in a T20I against Sri Lanka.
Despite several reports and tweets (see below), BCCI’s tweet, at the time of writing this, is still there.
