In Cricket, is there any hat-trick wickets taken by as a team except the individual person's hat-trick?


With in a over in continuous three balls as wickets - mixed of run out, caught, bowled, stumped, LBW, hit wicket and handling the ball.


On any over's last two balls as wickets and next over's first ball as wicket- mixed of run out, caught, bowled, stumped, LBW, hit wicket and handling the ball.

I didn't find any reference in the internet. If any one aware of that, please share the reference link.

I don't think you looked very hard ;-) A simple Google for "cricket hat trick run outs" led to this rec.sport.cricket thread and the Ireland vs Netherlands match in the 2011 World Cup which had four run outs in consecutive balls in the last four balls of the innings:

49.3 AF Buurman run out 26 (49m 30b 4x4 0x6)

49.4 PM Seelaar run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6)

49.5 Adeel Raja run out 0 (1m 0b 0x4 0x6)

49.6 Mudassar Bukhari run out 11 (22m 8b 0x4 1x6)

Given that, it doesn't seem too unlikely there are going to be quite a lot of these incidents out there.


Such an incident of a team hat-trick happened in the final of the 2016 Big Bash League. Melbourne Stars who were batting first, lost 3 wickets in the last 3 balls of the innings. Here is the match report of the final.

  • Adam Zampa was the first to be the run out from a direct hit on the stumps.
  • Evan Gulbis was caught out off the next ball.
  • Daniel Worrall was run-out off the last ball by the wicket-keeper.

The team picked up 3 wickets, although Clint McKay was only credited with the one in the middle. Here is a video of the three wickets taken in three successive balls.


In 2016 T20 world cup this happen to India, during the group match against Bangladesh.

here is the link of that match
