A hat-trick is a bowler's ultimate magic trick – three wickets in three balls, leaving batsmen and spectators in awe. This scene unfolded in the Super Eight game between England vs. USA match at Barbados, where Chris Jordan's splendid hat-trick shattered USA's hopes of setting a competitive total.

‌The USA got off to a shaky start after losing the toss with star batter Andries Gous falling early in the powerplay. However, a 34-run partnership between Nitish Kumar and Steven Taylor steadied the innings briefly taking them to 48/2 before Taylor's departure in the fifth over. Despite efforts to rebuild, the USA's middle order struggled to form substantial partnerships. Corey Anderson and Harmeet Singh provided a glimmer of hope, guiding their team to 101/5 by the 17th over. Yet, their plans were shattered by Chris Jordan's remarkable hat-trick in the 19th over.

Local hero Jordan enjoyed a career-defining moment when he dismissed Anderson with the first ball of the over. Following a dot ball, he continued his onslaught as Ali Khan fell to a length delivery that dismantled his off stump. In the next ball, Nosthush Kenjige misjudged the length with his front pad trapped plumb in front with the DRS confirming it crashing into the middle stump. The climax came as Saurabh Netravalkar, clueless against Jordan's full-length delivery, saw his stumps uprooted and sealing the hat-trick.

Born in Barbados, Jordan's joy was evident as he celebrated wildly, his achievement resonating throughout the Twitterverse and social media platforms.
