IND vs WI 2nd ODI: Twitter erupts as Kuldeep Yadav becomes first Indian to take two ODI hat-tricks

Posted On

Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (3/52) became the first Indian bowler to take two ODI hat-tricks. The 25-year-old achieved the feat in the second game of the ongoing three-match ODI series against West Indies in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday.

He dismissed Shai Hope (78), Jason Holder (11) and Alzarri Joseph (0) in the 33rd over of second innings.

Kuldeep took his first hat-trick against Australia in 2017 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. He then claimed the wickets of Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins to steer India to victory.

So now, Kuldeep has joined the elite list of bowlers with two ODI hat-tricks. It includes Pakistan veterans Wasim Akram and Saqlain Mushtaq, former Sri Lanka left-arm pacer Chaminda Vaas and New Zealand pacer Trent Boult.
