History was created in the World Cup
Chetan Sharma was the first bowler to take a hat-trick in the ICC World Cup. He achieved this feat on 31 October 1987 against New Zealand in Nagpur. Chetan bowled Kiwi batsmen Ken Rutherford, Ian Smith and Ewen Chatfield in three consecutive balls in this match. Chetan’s height was not much, but he had the ability to dodge big batters with his bowling. He sent Pakistan’s batsman Mohsin Khan to the pavilion in the very first over of his first Test match. He became the third bowler to take a wicket in the very first over in the Test.
