Indian cricket team pacer Deepak Chahar is having the best moment of his career at the moment.
On Sunday, the right-arm bowler claimed a hat-trick against Bangladesh in the T20I series decider in Nagpur.
And now, Chahar has gone on to claim another hat-trick inside three days.
His hat-trick came in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match between Rajasthan and Vidarbha.
Chahar's heroics help Rajasthan beat Vidarbha
Chahar finished with figures of 4/18 in three overs.
His spell included a hat-trick and a maiden over as Rajasthan restricted Vidarbha to 99 for 9 in 13 overs in Thiruvananthapuram.
The match was reduced to 13 overs per side and Rajasthan had earlier managed 105/8 in this crucial Group B encounter.
Chahar's heroics guided Rajasthan to a crucial win.
How did Chahar claim the hat-trick against Vidarbha?
Chahar claimed all his four wickets in the final over of Vidarbha's innings.
He got the wicket of Rushabh Rathod (3) in the first ball of the 13th over.
The 27-year-old then accounted for the wickets of Darshan Nalkande, Shrikant Wagh and Akshay Wadkar off the final three deliveries that had a wide ball in between.
This was brilliant stuff from the pace bowler.

He has already claimed 14 scalps for Team India in seven T20Is so far.
