Australian pacer Pat Cummins marked a historic milestone during the ongoing T20 World Cup, clinching his first-ever hat-trick in the tournament against Bangladesh in the Super Eights match.

The 31-year-old dismissed Mahmudullah and Mahedi Hasan off the last two deliveries of the 18th over, before claiming Towhid Hridoy with the first ball of the final over. This extraordinary performance marked the seventh hat-trick in T20I World Cup history, and the first for Cummins in his T20I career.

On the back of Cummins' stellar 3/29 bowling figures, Australia secured a 28-run victory under the Duckworth-Lewis method at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. Cummins expressed his joy at joining fellow Australians Ashton Agar and Nathan Ellis in the T20 hat-trick club. He becomes only the second Australian after Brett Lee to reach this milestone in a T20 World Cup tournament.
