Australian pacer Pat Cummins scored a hat-trick against Bangladesh todayAFP

Brett Lee’s hat-trick 17 years ago included Shakib Al Hasan, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Alak Kapali. Pat Cummins’ hat-trick names today – Mahmudullah, Mehdi Hasan and Tawhid Hriday. Both the hat-tricks were in the Australia-Bangladesh World T20 match. The first of these was in the first edition of the 2007 T20 World Cup. The latest is in the ongoing T20 World Cup. More precisely in the last match. Both hat-tricks by two Australian pacers.

Cummins took a hat-trick with wickets in the last two balls of the 18th over and the first ball of the 20th over against Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup in Antigua today in the Super Eight. This is the first hat-trick in the Australian pacer’s international career. Cummins became the fourth Australian to take a hat-trick in T20 Internationals. In this edition, three of the four hat-tricks by Australian bowlers have come against Bangladesh.

Former Australian pacer Lee scored a hat-trick against Bangladesh in the 2007 T20 World Cup in Cape Town. It is the first hat-trick in the history of international T20. After 13 years, Australian left-arm spinner Ashton Agar scored a hat-trick against South Africa in the first T20 of the series in Johannesburg in 2020.

The following year, pacer Nathan Ellis scored a hat-trick in the third match of the T20 series against Bangladesh in Mirpur. Cummins was added to that list today. In other words, Australian bowlers have to wait 13 long years to get the second hat-trick after getting the first hat-trick in international T20. After that, two more hat-tricks were seen by the Australian bowlers.

Cummins’ hat-trick is the 59th in T20 Internationals. But this edition also has the feat of taking 4 wickets in 4 balls. This feat is held by Rashid Khan, Lasith Malinga, Curtis Kampfer and Jason Holder. Cummins’ hat-trick is seventh in the T20 World Cup. Surprisingly, after Lee’s hat-trick in the 2007 World Cup, he did not see a hat-trick in the next five World Cups. The next six hat-tricks came in 2021, 2022 and this World Cup. Among them, three hat-tricks were seen in the 2021 T20 World Cup. Kampfer scored a hat-trick in the Ireland-Netherlands match, Wanindu Hasaranga in the Sri Lanka-South Africa match and Kagiso Rabada scored a hat-trick in the South Africa-England match.
