Individual milestones are often considered secondary in a team sport but the fruitful result of relentless hard work and skillful execution often makes an individual joyous. Pat Cummins went through a similar moment when he snapped the first hattrick of the 2024 T20 World Cup against Bangladesh.

Winning the toss and electing to field first panned out well for the Australian side as the pacers and spinners regulated the phases brilliantly to keep the Bangladesh side at bay. However, Towhid Hridoy soaked pressure and tried to counterpunch the mighty Aussies by smacking back-to-back sixes against Marcus Stoinis in the 17th over before Pat Cummins returned for a couple of overs, picked up a hat-trick and restricted the Asian side to 140/8 in 20 overs. 

Having extracted five runs off the first four balls in the 18th over, Cummins banged in a short ball outside the stumps that Mahmadullah chopped onto the stumps in an attempt to pull. In the next ball, he pitched the white cherry on a similar line but Sheikh Mahedi Hasan ended up with an uppercut straight into the hands of Adam Zampa at third man. The red-ball skipper returned for his fourth over and removed an on-song Towhid Hridoy with a slower bumper as the batter intended to shuffle across the line and ramp it straight to short fine leg, thereby completing the hat-trick. 

Cummins was seen ecstatic with this achievement and the Twitterverse abuzzed about it.
