Cricket fans spotted an error made by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the final T20I against Bangladesh where India thrashed the visitors by 30 runs to pull the series 2-1 in Nagpur.
Deepak Chahar was the architect in India's victory with his marvellous bowling spell as he went on to register the best figures of 6/7 by any bowler in T20 Internationals. Chahar also happened to claim a hat-trick after he got the wickets of Bangladesh's tail-enders .
BCCI took to their Twitter account about Chahar's heroics where they mentioned "@deepak_chahar9 today became the first Indian to pick up a hat-trick in T20Is.
However, India fans marked the national board wrong for their statistic error, as left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht, who, plays for Women's National team, had bagged a hat-trick against Sri Lanka back in 2012.
Hence Deepak Chahar remains the first male cricketer to pick up a hat-trick and second Indian player.
Here are some of the tweets posted by fans reminding BCCI about Ekta Bisht's masterclass-
