Playing only eighth ODI, the 28-year-old Christian's hat-trick in the 44th over was the highlight of the first session's play in today's match — the batsmen falling victim to him being Thisara Perera (5), Sachithra Senanayke (0) and Nuwan Kulasekara (0).


The right-arm pacer ended the day with impressive match figures of 5/31 in nine overs. James Pattinson picked up four wickets, conceding 51 runs in his 10 overs.
