Malinga Set the Records for Making the Most Hat-Trick


The New Zealand team is on a tour of Sri Lanka these days. In the T20 series, New Zealand have won against Sri Lanka in 2 matches. The third match was on 6 September. Seeing the batting of Sri Lanka, it seemed that today New Zealand will win the ground. Sri Lanka had a very slack performance in the old matches, so this target looked easy. But when there is no confidence in the player who will be in the form of the game, this time too it happened.

Captain Malinga was in front of him in the third over of New Zealand’s innings in the match. Two balls were bowled and New Zealand’s score was 15 runs without any loss. Malinga struck his most perfect weapon on the third ball. At 140 speed, the yorker and immediately Munro’s leg stump was uprooted. Also, Malinga’s name got recorded in the history of T20 cricket. He became the first bowler to take 100 wickets, but Malinga’s miracle was still left. In the fourth ball, the ball hit the Rutherford pad and LBW was appealed, Malinga immediately took a review after the umpire refused, and the 3rd umpire gave the decision of the out. After this, the fifth ball sent new batsman De Grandhom back. In this way, Malinga got his name recorded in the record of taking the most hat-trick. Malinga has taken hat-trick 5 times.
