In four overs, he conceded 18 runs and claimed four wickets. Darshan Nalkande, 12.4, Shrikant Wagh, 12.5 and Akshay Wadkar, 12.6 were his hat-trick victims.

He now holds the record for multiple hat-tricks in fewest days (3). The record previously belonged to Indian legend Yuvraj Singh, who claimed two in a space of 16 days. Third in the list Aussie fast bowler, Andrew Tye - who did in in 93 days.

Chahar on Sunday produced the best bowling figures in a T20I match by claiming 6 wickets for seven runs in a spell of 3.2 overs. He thus broke Sri Lanka's Ajantha Mendis' record - 6/8 against Zimbabwe in 2012.
