Islamabad, June 11( ANI ): Former Pakistan fast bowler and one of the country's well-known coaches Jalaluddin, has said it felt great to take the first ever hat trick in one-day cricket.

Jalaluddin said taking a hat trick for any bowler in modern day cricket is a tough feat to achieve, but once you take a hat trick, it's a great feeling.

"We were playing against Australia at Hyderabad, Sindh. I had dismissed Rodney Marsh and Bruce Yardley on two successive deliveries. Then I tried to get a hat trick and was successful in the end. You are obviously excited when you achieve something like that and your team mates also appreciate you and congratulate you," he added.

"So it was a great feeling. At that time, we were unaware of the fact that it was the first hat trick in the history of ODI cricket. We got to know of it the next day when people checked the records and it doubled my excitement. So, it was a great feeling as we also won the match and I was receiving appreciation from all," he said. ( ANI )
