Players with IPL Century and a Hat-trick: Sunil Narine joins ultra-elite list

Sunil Narine's explosive batting display combined with his past hat-trick achievement solidify his reputation as a complete cricketer. He joins an elite group of all-rounders who have left their mark on the IPL with both bat and ball.

Sunil Narine’s recent exploits in the Indian Premier League have cemented his status as a true all-rounder, placing him in a prestigious group of players.

Sunil Narine explosive knock makes history

The Kolkata Knight Riders opener blazed a trail with a remarkable century against the Rajasthan Royals. This maiden T20 ton wasn’t just a personal milestone, but it propelled him into a unique category of cricketers. Narine’s 109 runs off just 56 deliveries earned him a place alongside just two others in IPL history who have achieved both a century and a hat-trick.

All-Rounder Hall of Fame: Rohit Sharma and Shane Watson

The exclusive club Sunil Narine joins includes Rohit Sharma and Shane Watson.

Rohit Sharma, currently part of the Mumbai Indians, boasts two centuries and one hat-trick in his IPL career. His hat-trick came back in 2009 while playing for the Deccan Chargers.

Shane Watson, a former all-rounder for Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings, takes the crown for most centuries with a staggering four to his name, alongside a single hat-trick achieved in 2014.

Look Back at Sunil Narine Hat-Trick Feat

While his recent century has grabbed headlines, Sunil Narine’s hat-trick prowess shouldn’t be forgotten. Back in 2013, playing for KKR against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), he dismantled their batting order with a magnificent hat-trick.

David Hussey, Azhar Mahmood, and Gurkeerat Singh Mann all fell victim to his bowling magic.
