In the game of cricket, when a bowler takes 3 wickets in three consecutive balls, it is a hat-trick. It is very difficult for bowlers to take hat tricks. But taking a double hat-trick is more difficult than that. When a bowler takes 4 wickets in 4 consecutive balls then it is called a double hat-trick. There is also a bowler who has taken four consecutive wickets in 4 balls. This amazing bowler has done this not once but twice. Let's know who is that bowler.
That bowler is none other than former Sri Lankan bowler Lasith Malinga. Lasith Malinga has retired from international cricket. Malinga first did this feat in the 2007 ICC World Cup. In the match played against South Africa, Lasith Malinga took 4 wickets in consecutive balls. After this, Malinga took 4 wickets in 4 consecutive balls in the T20 match played against New Zealand at Pallekal in 2019.
Malinga dismissed Colin Munro, Hamish Rutherford, Colin de Grandhomme, and Ross Taylor in 4 consecutive balls. Apart from him, no bowler in the world has been able to do this feat. Lasith Malinga was one of the best bowlers in the world. He took 100 or more wickets in all three formats of cricket, Test, ODI, and T20. Although now Lasith Malinga does not play cricket.
