Pat Cummins T20 World Cup

People often regard cricket as one of the easy games to master and play around the world. However, some aspects of the game are easier only from the outside. One such feat is taking a hattrick of wickets while bowling. Taking a hattrick requires a bowler to dismiss three batters on consecutive three deliveries in his overs, a feat that is a rare sight in cricket. Australia’s Pat Cummins managed to accomplish the feat, taking three wickets in his consecutive overs as he became the first bowler to take a hattrick in this year’s T20 World Cup.

Pat Cummins became only the second Aussie bowler in World Cup history to pick up a hattrick, following Brett Lee’s heroics against Bangladesh back in the inaugural edition of the World Cup in 2007.

Here are all the other players who have joined the elusive group over the years –
