Sydney, Nov 7 (Cricketnmore) Left-arm quick Mitchell Starc on Tuesday became the first bowler in nearly four decades and only the second Australian to claim two hat-tricks in the same first-class match.

Playing for New South Wales, Starc brushed up his preparations for the upcoming Ashes series, when he blasted out Western Australia's last three batsmen to help his side to a 171-run win at the Hurstville Oval here on Tuesday, according to an espncricinfo report.
