Starc Supremacy: Two Hattricks In One Game

November 9, 2017 2:20 pm
Australian toe crusher Mitchell Starc has been a phenomenon in his own deeds. The Sydney Strike bowler became the first man to take two hat-tricks in the same first-class game in Australia. The Starc Supremacy hit ominous form ahead of the Ashes Test series against England. The left-arm paceman became only the eighth player in first-class cricket history. And also he has become the first in 39 years to achieve the feat. He spearheaded New South Wales to victory over Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield.

The Starc Supremacy & his hattrick:

Having removed Jason Behrendorff, David Moody and Simon Mackin in WA’s first innings to complete his first career hat-trick, Starc then got both Behrendorff and Moody again off the final two deliveries of his 15th over. Jono Wells then edged Starc on the first ball of his next over to Australia and NSW captain Steve Smith at first slip to end the match.

Starc finished with the match figures of seven for 97 in NSW’s 171-run victory. He also took a career-best 8-73 for NSW against South Australia under lights at Adelaide Oval. He simply looks in ominous touch ahead of the Test series.

Australia takes on England in the first of five Ashes Test matches in Brisbane, starting on November 23. Australian leg-spinner Jimmy Matthews remains the only player to take two hat-tricks in a Test match after he did it against South Africa in Manchester in 1912.
