Pat Cummins Makes History with T20 World Cup Hat Trick Against Bangladesh

Pat Cummins Makes History with T20 World Cup Hat Trick

Australian cricket star Pat Cummins has etched his name into the T20 record books with a sensational hat trick during a crucial World Cup match against Bangladesh. Cummins became only the second Australian to achieve this milestone in a T20 World Cup, following in the footsteps of Brett Lee who accomplished the feat in 2007, also against Bangladesh.

Cummins spearheaded the Australian bowling attack, restricting Bangladesh to 8/140 in their opening Super 8 stage clash on Friday. The Test skipper’s hat trick began by clean bowling Mahmudullah. He then dismissed Mahedi Hasan with the next delivery, as Hasan’s shot went straight to Adam Zampa in the outfield. Cummins completed his hat trick with the first ball of the final over, when Towhid Hridoy’s ramp shot landed in Josh Hazlewood’s hands.

This achievement makes Cummins the seventh bowler to secure a hat trick in a T20 World Cup match.

Australia’s innings began with a bang, as Mitchell Starc clean bowled opener Tanzid Hasan with a superb inswinging yorker. Despite a brief recovery from Bangladesh, the spin duo of Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell quickly dismantled the top order, reducing Bangladesh from 1/58 to 4/84. Zampa now stands second on the tournament’s wickets leaderboard with 11, trailing Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqi who has taken 15.

1:40 PM – Travis Head Falls to Poor Shot Selection

Travis Head’s return to the crease was short-lived, as he was clean bowled by Bangladesh spinner Rishad Hossain. Head’s attempt to play a cross-bat shot resulted in the ball skidding under his bat and hitting the middle stump, giving Bangladesh their first wicket of the innings.

1:15 PM – Rain Delays Play

Just as Australia seemed poised to secure a swift victory, rain interrupted play after 6.2 overs, with the Aussies comfortably placed at 0/64. David Warner was on 32 runs from 18 balls, while Head had scored 31 from 20.

12:55 PM – Head and Warner Dominate

Australian openers Travis Head and David Warner aggressively attacked the Bangladesh bowlers, quickly putting 36 runs on the board within four overs. Both batsmen had scored 18 runs each, including one six and two fours.

12:45 PM – Warner’s Early Lifeline

David Warner received an early reprieve when a tough catch was dropped by a Bangladesh fielder at point. Warner’s strong cut shot was mishandled, allowing him to continue his innings.

Pat Cummins’ historic hat trick and the overall team performance set a strong tone for Australia in the T20 World Cup, making them a formidable contender as the tournament progresses.
