4 bowlers have taken wickets in 4 consecutive balls in T20Is, one bowler has taken wickets in WC 2024

New Delhi. Taking three wickets in three consecutive balls i.e. ‘hat-trick’ is a great achievement in cricket. It has been 147 years since the start of Test cricket and 53 years since the start of ODI cricket, but the number of bowlers who have done this wonder is limited to 100. As for T20Is, despite being over 19 years since its inception, the format has so far recorded 61 hat-tricks. Lasith Malinga of Sri Lanka, Tim Southee of New Zealand, Mark Pavlovic of Serbia and Pat Cummins of Australia have achieved this feat twice each.

The number of hat-tricks in T20Is is more than that of Tests and ODIs because of the fast pace of the game in this format. In T20 cricket, the batsman bats fast and takes a lot of risk to speed up the score. In such a situation, the chances of his getting out also increase. This is the reason that apart from hat-trick in this format, some bowlers have also done the miracle of taking wickets in 4 consecutive balls. So far in T20 Internationals, four players – Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan, Ireland’s Curtis Kampfer and West Indies’ Jason Holder – have taken wickets in 4 consecutive balls. Kemper did this feat in the T20 World Cup 2021.
