Pat Cummins Makes History with Hat-Trick in ICC T20 WC Match


Star pacer Pat Cummins made history on Thursday in Antigua by becoming the second Australian and seventh overall to claim a hat-trick in an ICC Men’s T20 World Cup match.

Cummins achieved this milestone during Australia’s Super 8 clash against Bangladesh at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. The Australian speedster took three wickets across two consecutive overs. He secured two wickets with the final deliveries of his third over and completed the hat-trick with the first ball of his last over, dismissing Towhid Hridoy caught at short fine leg.

The 31-year-old pacer now stands alongside compatriot Brett Lee as the only Australian bowlers to have taken a hat-trick in a Men’s T20 World Cup. Lee achieved his hat-trick against Bangladesh in 2007. Cummins joins an elite group of players who have taken a hat-trick in a Men’s T20 World Cup, including Brett Lee (2007), Curtis Campher (2021), Wanindu Hasaranga (2021), Kagiso Rabada (2021), Karthik Meiyappan (2022), and Josh Little (2022).
