Kagiso Rabada became the first South Africa bowler and fourth overall to take a hat-trick in the ICC T20 World Cup. After the first hat-trick by Brett lee in 2007, the rest came in the ongoing tournament.
Defending just 14 runs off 6 balls, Rabada got rid of Chris Woakes, Eoin Morgan and Chris Jordan to complete the landmark. He took the wickets on the first three deliveries of the over.
He conceded just 3 runs from the over and led his team to win by 10 runs.
Earlier, Curtis Campher and Wanindu Hasaranga completed their hat-tricks in the UAE.
