Full List of Bowlers with Hat-trick in T20 World Cup History | Australia’s Pat Cummins joins the list | AUS vs BAN


AUS vs BAN: Australian pacer Pat Cummins has etched his name in the record books of the T20 World Cup after he became the latest entrant in the list of bowlers with a hat-trick in the T20 World Cup history. Cummins achieved this feat on June 21 during his side’s Super 8 fixture against Bangladesh at the Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua.

Pat Cummins produced a sensational effort over the course of two overs in his final spell against Bangladesh. The seasoned pacer picked up the scalp of Mahmudullah in the penultimate delivery of the 18th over and doubled it down with a wicket of Mahedi Hasan for a duck in the next delivery.

With two wickets in the final two deliveries of his 18th over, Cummins was set for a hattrick ball in his 20th over. He walked in for his last over and picked up the wicket of well-set Towhid Hridoy (40 runs in 28 deliveries) in the first ball of the over to complete his hat-trick.

Pat Cummins became the seventh bowler to pick up a T20 World Cup hat-trick and only second Australian after Brett Lee. Interestingly, Brett Lee’s hat-trick spell came in the 2007 T20 World Cup against the same opponent – Bangladesh.

The mighty Australians, meanwhile, restricted Bangladesh to a meagre total of 140 runs in 20 overs during their Super 8 fixture in Antigua. The sensational effort in bowling led by Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa, who scalped 2 wickets, helped Australia contain the opposition to a low total.

Towhid Hridoy, who became the last wicket for Pat Cummins to complete his hat-trick, remained the top scorer in the innings with 40 runs in just 28 deliveries. Skipper Shanto played a decent innings of 41 runs in 36 deliveries, which led Bangladesh to 140 runs.

In response, Australia has so far done exceedingly well. The openers provided a solid start with a partnership of 65 runs for the opening wicket. Travis Head fell at an individual score of 31 runs following which Mitchell Marsh was also dismissed for a mere 1 run.

However, David Warner and Glenn Maxwell have kept the scoreboard ticking with their sensational strokeplay. Warner is currently unbeaten at 53 runs in 35 deliveries, while Maxwell has hit 14 runs in 6 deliveries. Rain has, meanwhile, halted the play at a score of 100/2 in 11.2 overs.
