Pat Cummins’ 3/29 against Bangladesh was instrumental in Australia’s win in their Super 8 match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Australian pacer Pat Cummins became the first bowler to take a hat-trick in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2024 tournament. The lanky speedster achieved this applaudable feat against Bangladesh in their Super 8 encounter on Thursday night in Antigua.

Cummins’ hat-trick was spread across the 18th and 20th overs of Bangladesh’s innings at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua. He had bowled two wicketless overs in his first spell but then returned to scalp a hat-trick that denied Bangladesh a strong finish.

On the fifth ball of the 18th over, Cummins bowled Mahmudullah, the veteran Bangladeshi right-hander chopping a back-of-length delivery onto his stumps. On the next ball, he sent down a bouncer to Mahedi Hasan, who upper-cut it straight to the deep third-man fielder.

On the first ball of the 20th over, he bowled a slower delivery outside the off-stump to Towhid Hridoy. Hridoy tried going over short fine leg but because of the lack of pace on the delivery, he ended up scooping to Hazlewood at short fine leg.
