In cricket, there are 4 wickets in 4 consecutive deliveries. Cricket is the origin of hat tricks. 4 is a double hat trick. Because 1, 2 and 3 are hat tricks and 2, 3 and 4 are different hat tricks. Jason Holder recently wrote his name in history books after becoming the first West Indies bowler to record a hat-trick on the T20I and the fourth Windy’s bowler to record a 5fer on the T20I. With a total of 15 wickets in his name, Jason Holder has also become the player with most wickets by the bilateral T20I series bowlers. This brings us to remember the other double hat-tricks. On that note, let us look at the players with double hat trick in T20I cricket history.
Players with double hat-trick in t20i
1. Lasith Malinga
In the third and final T20I of the series, Sri Lanka batted first. They only managed 125-8 in their 20 overs. Malinga took it upon himself to produce an inspired session of fast bowling. Scaring the opposition within the first three overs, despite his team already having lost the series.
After pushing opener Colin Munro onto the back foot with a bouncer moments before, he castled him with his trademark yorker. With this wicket, he became the first guy to reach 100 T20I wickets.
The scoreboard read WWWW when Malinga trapped the seasoned Ross Taylor with another yorker, adhering to the same formula of full and straight.
The double-hat-trick was a repetition of his performance against South Africa in the 50-over World Cup’s Super Eight match in 2007. Also, he became the first and only bowler to accomplish the record in both limited-over formats.
He wasn’t done yet: in the following over, he induced an outside edge off Tim Seifert, which was safely pouched by Danushka Gunathilaka at first slip, making him only the fifth bowler in T20I history to record two five-wicket hauls.
2. Rashid Khan
Rashid, the world’s number one T20I bowler, won the last five wickets of the match at Dehradun and finished on May 27. He also challenged Kevin O’Brien’s scalp with a final ball of 15 overs and started 17 overs with wickets three times in a row. Rashid is also the first Afghan bowler to record hat-trick on the T20I cricket. He also finished a three-way streak against Ireland with 11 wickets. And then Afghanistan won the final with 32 runs. Also, all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, who is on the rebel list, was selected as the best player in 81 out of 36 broadcasts.
3. Curtis Campher
Irish Curtis Campher made history with a double hat-trick on Monday. In the T20 World Cup qualifying with the Netherlands, he also took four wickets with four balls. Also, his incredible performance put Ireland in the driver’s seat in the first inning. After the Netherlands chose the bat, Camper recorded more than 10 hat tricks. Colin Ackerman was his first victim and was late for his second childbirth. Ryan Ten Doshate was also pinched forward with the next ball. Camper also fired Scott Edwards to complete the hat-trick. Also, he took four out of four after betraying Roerov van der Melwe.

4. Jason Holder
The West Indies defeated England by 17 runs in the fifth T20I of England’s recent visit of the Caribbean. Winning the series 3-2. In a series finale, England batters Sam Billings and Chris Jordan were also facing a tough challenge of scoring 20 runs. This was off the last Jason Holder over while chasing a 180-run total. Holder had earlier given up 25 runs in two overs. Also including sending back England’s stand-in skipper Moeen Ali (14). He not only won the game for his team, but also set a number of personal records. Following that, the 30-year-old picked up his first T20I five-wicket haul after a double hat-trick (four wickets off four balls). Holder bowled a career-best 2.5-0-27-5 to dismiss Jordan (7), Billings (41), Adil Rashid (0), and Saqib Mahmood (0). Becoming the first West Indian bowler to rack up a T20I hat-trick.
