This Day, That Year: Chetan Sharma Became First Bowler To Take World Cup Hat-Trick In 1987

On October 31, 1987, former India paceman Chetan Sharma became the first bowler to take a hat-trick in the one day internationals.

In a match against New Zealand in Nagpur, Sharma removed Ken Rutherford, Ian Smith and Ewen Chatfield as the Black Caps collapsed to 182/8 from a reasonably well-placed position.

New Zealand eventually managed only 221/9 off their 50 overs.

India got home with plenty to spare thanks to aggressive knocks from openers Krishnamachari Srikkanth and Sunil Gavaskar, who smashed a hundred.

India, the then defending champions, reached the semi-finals before losing to Australia.

A few years later, in January 1991, Kapil Dev became the second Indian to take a hat-trick during the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens.

The talented left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, returned to the same iconic venue after 26 years to become the third Indian to take a hat-trick.

Kuldeep, while bowling his eighth over, dismissed Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins off successive deliveries in the 33rd over of the Australian innings to derail their chase of 253 in the second ODI at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
