The third match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is taking place between Ireland and Netherlands at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Opting to bat the first Netherlands didn’t have a great start to their innings as they scored only 25 runs in the mandatory 6 overplay and lost two wickets as well.

Watch: Curtis Campher HATTRICK in T20 World Cup 2021

After scoring 25 runs in the power play, the Netherlands cricket team’s batsman started to counter-attack and it almost looked like the duo of Max ODowd and Colin Ackermann would steady the innings for their team.

However, Curtis Campher, who bowled the 10th over turned the course of the game and became the first bowler ever to take a hat-trick in the ICC T20 World Cup. If this was not enough the pacer joined the likes of Lasith Malinga and Rashid khan and became only the third bowler to take four wickets in four balls in T20Is.

Campher’s hattrick started with a bit of luck as Colin Ackermann was caught down the leg side by wicketkeeper Neil Rock. He then trapped Ryan ten Doeschate in LBW and followed it with a wicket of Scott Edwards in a similar way to complete his hattrick. The right-arm pacer then jolted Netherland with the wicket of Roelof van der Merwe, who threw his hands at the ball and dragged it back to the stumps.

While the wickets kept tumbling at the other end, Max ODowd is looking strong and carved his way through half-century. The right-handed batsman opened the innings for his team and looked like the most settled batsman.

However, just when it looked, Max ODowd would take his team to a respectable total, the right-handed batsman was caught by Harry Tector off Mark Adair at the boundary for 51 runs.
