Hat-tricks in ODI world cup matches are always special. India’s Chetan Sharma got the first Hat-trick in 1987 against New Zealand. Lasith Malinga is the only bowler who has taken hat-trick in World Cups two times. His first hat-trick was against South Africa in the 2007 world cup where he had taken 4 wickets in 4 consecutive deliveries. Malinga’s second hat-trick was against Kenya in the 2011 World Cup.
In cricket, a hat-trick means taking wickets on three consecutive deliveries. The history of cricket is more than a hundred years old, but there are very few bowlers who have got hat-tricks in world cricket. A hat-trick becomes more special when it is one of the Cricket World Cup Hat-tricks.

Chetan Sharma is the first bowler who has taken a hat-trick in a world cup match. He is the only bowler whose all three wickets were clean bowled in a match against New Zealand in the world cup in 1987.
The rarest of rare incidents in world cricket where Sri Lankan cricketer Lasith Malinga took 4 wickets in 4 consecutive delete deliveries. South Africa required 3 runs to win and they had 5 wickets in hand. A comfortable win was there But the curly-haired last Malinga had something else on his mind on that day. In the next 4 balls, he had taken 4 wickets and now the equation was South Africa 9 down and they still needed 3 runs to win. Somehow South Africa managed to win this match. But Malinga had engraved his name in world cricket history with this 4-ball 4-wicket hat-trick.
