The Australian speedster stunned Western Australia in the first innings with a skittling hat-trick to clean up the tail. The 27-year-old fired in three successive yorkers to claim the wickets of Jason Behrendorff, David Moody and Simon Mackin as the visitors folded to 176.
Starc repeated his first innings heroics with another hat-trick to clean up the West Australian tail once again and win the match for New South Wales.
Starc’s ridiculous Groundhog Day feat claimed a rare piece of history, becoming the first man in Australian first-class cricket to take two hat-tricks in one game.
Here’s the video of Mitchell Starc’s 2nd hat-trick:
Incredible! Twin hat-tricks for @mstarc56 in the Sheffield Shield!
