Despite playing just five first-class matches for Services in the 1963-64 season, Joginder Rao carved a permanent niche in the game's history with a hat-trick on debut and and two hat-tricks in the same innings in the next match. He was the only bowler apart from Albert Trott to manage two hat-tricks in the same game and remains the only cricketer in first-class history to have taken three hat-tricks in his first two games.
