South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada on Saturday became the fourth cricketer to take a hat-trick in the T20 World Cup.
Rabada achieved the feat against England in the ongoing T20 World Cup on Saturday.The South African pacer dimissed Chris Woakes, Eoin Morgan and Chris Jordan as England batters looked for boundaries since the side needed 14 runs in the last over.
Rabada did not jave a great day. He had been hit for three consecutive sixes in the 15th over of the innings and had leaked runs in abundance. However, with England requiring 14 off the last over, he was given the charge of bowling the crucial over. And he did not disappoint.
