Hat-tricks are a very rare occurrence in cricket, let alone the T20 World Cup. Taking three wickets on three consecutive deliveries is no joke and a very difficult task to pull off. Despite the difficulties, there are still a number of legendary bowlers that have managed to achieve the feat in the T20 World Cups.

In the nine editions of the T20 World Cup so far, a total of eight hat-tricks have been taken by seven bowlers from different nations participating in the tournament. Pat Cummins is the only bowler to pick up two hat-tricks in the history of the tournament.

Bowlers with T20 World Cup hat trick

In the nine editions of the T20 World Cup so far, a total of eight hat-tricks have been taken by seven bowlers from different nations participating in the tournament. Pat Cummins is the only bowler to pick up two hat-tricks in the history of the tournament.

The first ever hat-trick was taken in the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. Following this it took fourteen long years until 2021 for fans to witness another hat-trick in the prestigious tournament. Ireland’s Curtis Campher took a brilliant hat-trick against Netherlands in the 2021 T20 World Cup in UAE.

The likes of Wanindu Hasaranga and Kagiso Rabada also took a hat trick in the same T20 World Cup edition. In 2022, UAE’s spinner Karthik Meiyappan and Ireland’s pacer Josh Little achieved the rare feat of taking a hat trick.
