View Full Version : Sidebottom hat-trick stun New Zealand

29.6 Sidebottom to Fleming, OUT, gone! Cook's pulled off another good catch diving away to his left at gully as Fleming drove uppishly, attempting another extra cover drive, but he wasn't to the pitch of the ball. Good, low catch by Cook
SP Fleming c Cook b Sidebottom 66 (88b 7x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

31.1 Sidebottom to Sinclair, OUT, this is a quite memorable catch from Cook. Another one! Sinclair drove at a wideish delivery, the ball flying high to Cook's left at tremendous pace. He took off and snaffled it with two hands at full stretch - an absolute corker
MS Sinclair c Cook b Sidebottom 2 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

31.2 Sidebottom to Oram, OUT, GONE! Trapped in front. Oram's feet were concreted to the crease and he was absolutely plumb - and that's Sidebottom's fifth wicket and his hat-trick. This game is turning, and how!
JDP Oram b Sidebottom 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England mob Sidebottom who's taken five wickets - and has taken a hat-trick, which has almost gone unnoticed, as he took a wicket with his sixth ball of his last over. And he could get four-in-four now...

Here goes the list of test hat-tricks

yup, and they say that test cricket is boring. Hoping for an england win. wohoo go england.

So, England got a realistic chance to win the test now. Vettori is the lone campaigner for the hosts.

this honestly reminds me of the first test btwn SA and Bangladesh. Bangla gets their score. then limit SA to something less. in the 2nd innings the hosts fall apart. If england win this game, sidebottom should def be MOM.

England scored at a rate of 2 runs per over in their first innings. I do not think they can score 270 plus on fifth day if they bat anything like how they saw devils in the pitch on the second and third days of the match.

England are going to lose.

Good player Sidebottom, not as physically talented as say a Harmison...but Sidebottom has guts.

Just looking at the list...Alok Kapali...now there's a blast from the past.

Wasim Akram, the only one with two test hatricks.
Didn't know that.

TJ Matthews (Aus) accomplished two hattricks in a single day against South Africa.

But Wasim Akram has 2 in tests and 2 in one dayers
