Chris Jordan Creates History with First T20I Hat-Trick for England in T20 World Cup 2024

In a thrilling display of seam bowling, Chris Jordan became the first Englishman to record a T20I hat-trick during the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 match against the United States. Jordan’s remarkable achievement came in the 19th over of the US innings, propelling England to a dominant position in the match.

The United States, who were aiming for a competitive total, crumbled under the pressure of Jordan’s precise bowling. The sequence of events began with the dismissal of Corey Anderson, followed by a dot ball. Jordan then cleaned up Ali Khan, trapped Nosthush Kenjige leg-before, and castled Saurabh Netravalkar to complete his hat-trick. The US team experienced a dramatic collapse, losing five wickets in just six deliveries, plummeting from 115 for five to being all out for the same score.

Jordan’s hat-trick is the third of the ongoing T20 World Cup, following two consecutive hat-tricks by Australia’s Pat Cummins against Bangladesh and Afghanistan in the Super 8s. This is a rare occurrence in T20 World Cup history, with only the 2021 edition in the United Arab Emirates previously witnessing three hat-tricks.

List of hat-tricks in Men’s T20 World Cups:

  • Brett Lee (AUS) vs BAN, Cape Town, 2007
  • Curtis Campher (IRE) vs NED, Abu Dhabi, 2021
  • Wanindu Hasaranga (SL) vs SA, Sharjah, 2021
  • Kagiso Rabada (SA) vs ENG, Sharjah, 2021
  • Karthik Meiyappan (UAE) vs SL, Geelong, 2022
  • Joshua Little (IRE) vs NZ, Adelaide, 2022
  • Pat Cummins (AUS) vs BAN, North Sound, 2024
  • Pat Cummins (AUS) vs AFG, Kingstown, 2024
  • Chris Jordan (ENG) vs USA, Bridgetown, 2024

The United States’ batting line-up, which showed promise earlier in the innings, succumbed to the pressure exerted by Jordan’s accuracy and skill. The collapse was only the third instance in men’s T20I history where five wickets fell at the same score. This match will be remembered not just for Jordan’s hat-trick but also for the United States’ dramatic implosion.

Chris Jordan, reflecting on his achievement, expressed his delight at creating history for England. “It’s a special feeling to achieve a hat-trick, especially in a World Cup. I’m glad I could contribute to the team’s success,” he said.

England, buoyed by Jordan’s performance, now looks to carry this momentum forward in the tournament. The T20 World Cup 2024 has already seen several memorable moments, and Jordan’s hat-trick adds another chapter to its growing legacy.
