New Delhi . Luck takes time to shine, but there are only a few people, whose fate shines overnight. Something similar has happened to Himachal Pradesh fast bowler Vaibhav Arora. Vaibhav Arora, who made his debut in first-class cricket in 2019, played the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this year and was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders at the base price of 20 lakhs at the auction for IPL 2021.
The matter does not end here, as he has made a wonderful record as soon as he gets his IPL contract. Vaibhav Arora has already taken a hat-trick in the first match while making his debut in List A. In the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 Elite Group D round one match against Maharashtra, right-arm fast bowler Vaibhav Arora took a hat-trick by dismissing three batsmen for three consecutive balls for Himachal’s team. Actually, Vaibhav Arora spent a total of 45 runs, bowling a total of 7 overs against Maharashtra, but also took 4 wickets. Initially, he proved expensive, but he drove three batsmen for the last three balls of the last over of the innings.
In this way, he also proved to be expensive and made a record that he is the first bowler from Himachal Pradesh to take a hat-trick while making a List A Cricket. Nobody remembers Vaibhav Arora’s debut in First Class cricket, but Cheteshwar Pujara and he will surely be remembered, as he dismissed Pujara in that match. Vaibhav Arora had overthrown Pujara’s middle stump. Since then, they began to be noticed. Vaibhav has played 8 First Class and 6 T20 matches so far. He has taken 29 wickets in first class cricket and 10 wickets in short format.
