Anuradha Doddaballapur Double Hat Trick
Women’s cricket returns to the field with the T20 series in Germany and Austria. Girls cricket got a history in this series. Seen for the first time – four wickets in four balls. German captain Anuradha Doddaballapur has achieved what is known as double hat trick in cricket terms.
Doddabalapur returned four of the hosts’ four balls in a row on Friday at the Siberian Cricket Center in Lower Austria. This is the 19th hat-trick in women’s cricket in T20.
There are three hat-tricks in women’s cricket in Tests and 11 in ODIs.
In the first ODI of the series against the West Indies in 2013, South Africa’s Dan Von Knickerbocker took four wickets, including a hat-trick off five balls.
Doddabalapur’s 133-run victory on the day of the five-match series, Germany is leading 4-0. The team won the toss and elected to bat and scored 198 runs without losing a wicket in Christina Goff’s century.
Gough remained unbeaten on 101 off 13 balls with 60 balls to spare. Janet Ronald, who scored a century in the second match of the series, made 6 runs off 60 balls. Austria scored 71 runs for the loss of 9 wickets.
Doddabalapur took 5 wickets for 1 run in 3 overs. The medium-pacer started the hunt by returning JA Stiglitz in the 15th over. Kazansi, Anisha Nukala and Priya Sabu were bowled in the next three deliveries.
In international cricket, there are only three wickets in four balls. Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga has scored a double hat-trick once in ODIs and T20s. Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has done it once in T20
