LISTEN | Josh Lalor Took A Hat Trick In The BBL Without Even Realising It

Imagine not knowing you've taken a hat trick.
That's exactly what happened to Brisbane Heat quick Josh Lalor on Friday night!
Lalor, bowling the final over against the Scorchers, dismissed Matt Kelly with his first ball and then took a second wicket with his next, with Nick Hobson skying one to 'keeper Jimmy Peirson.
But, aside from the commentators, no one knew it was a hat trick - Lalor had actually taken a wicket with the final ball of his previous over, making it three in three.
Channel 7 commentators had to tell Heat batsman Alex Ross, who was wearing a mic, that there'd just been a hat trick, with Ross promptly sprinting across the field to let Lalor know.
"Hat trick! Well done!" he told him.
"You've got a hat trick brother!"
Peirson had no idea either, with Adam Gilchrist asking him if he knew about the hat trick on Fox Sports.
"Was that a hat trick? You're kidding!" he replied.
