Hatrick on 3 overs
by varun laisu on Jul 17, 2009 12:52 PM

While all hat-tricks are rare and prized, some examples are particularly extraordinary. On 2 December 1988, Merv Hughes, playing for Australia, dismissing Curtly Ambrose with the last ball of his penultimate over and Patrick Patterson with the first ball of his next over, wrapping up the West Indies first innings. When Hughes returned to bowl in the West Indies second innings, he trapped Gordon Greenidge lbw with his first ball, completing a hat-trick over two different innings and becoming the only player in Test cricket history to achieve the three wickets of a hat-trick in three different overs

Rajneesh is wrong, a hatrick can indeed span over 2 matches. Just to quote an example, our very own Javagal Srinath got rid of 2 South African batsmen in Ahmedabad test in 1996 and those happened to be the last 2 deliveries of the match. Next match in Kolkatta, he was on a hatrick on the first ball he bowled but couldnt achieve it

u haven't proven rajneesh wrong by this silly instance.

if srinath had claimed such a hat-trick then we would had agreed that rajneesh is wrong.

but according to the example you quoted, i don't think anyone in the world, except you, thought that srinath was on a hat-trick.

absolutely baseless allegation dude.

Ashish is right
When Srinath was bowling the first ball of the next match @ Eden Gardens there was a display showing "Srinath on a Hat-Trick"

mr rajneesh is absolutely correct about the hat-trick rule.

just because the message was displayed on the ground doesn't mean the rule has changed.

Walsh had a hat trick to his name which was spread over two innings of a Test against Australia.

Actually, the rule is simple. If a bowler takes three wickets with his three consecutive balls in test cricket spanning for even three test matches it is a hattrick.
