#6 Sohag Gazi – 101* vs. New Zealand, Chittagong (2013)

A test hundred, six-wicket haul, hat-trick. What could’ve gone wrong for Sohag Gazi?

Sohag Gazi lived a test match of dreams in Chittagong if there was any!

It began with an unbeaten hundred batting at No. 8 and concluded with a six-wicket haul, which encompassed a hat-trick that reserved an exclusive space for him in cricket history.

Gazi seemed to be on a five-day mission for Bangladesh, as he almost single-handedly pulled off an upset over New Zealand. After an impressive rear-guard effort with the bat alongside captain Mushfiqur Rahim, Gazi was once again in the thick of things with the ball in hand. Trapping Corey Anderson in front with the slider, Gazi wrapped up the innings with a hat-trick, two consecutive arm balls getting rid of BJ Watling and Doug Bracewell. Despite missing out on the chance of a win, the performance of Gazi was a massive positive for Bangladesh in a confidence boosting performance for the underdogs.
