England pacer Chris Jordan came up with a sensational performance with the ball in the ongoing game against the United States of America (USA) in the T20 World Cup 2024. The Super 8 game of the tournament between the teams is underway at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. 

Chris Jordan etched his name in the record books as he became the first England bowler to take a hat trick in T20 Internationals. He achieved the feat in the 19th over of the innings as he removed Ali Khan, Nosthush Kenjige, and Saurabh Netravalkar.

Chris Jordan started the 19th over on high as he on the first ball removed Corey Anderson. He bowled a low full toss outside off to which the batter shuffled to try and loft it over long-on. He didn't get the necessary elevation and picked out the fielder in the deep and walked back to the pavilion after scoring 29 runs. 

But his best came from the third ball as he removed Ali Khan with a peach. The fast bowled a quick-length ball that was darted in. The batter stayed in the crease and played across the line, missing the ball that went on to hit the stumps. 

On the 4th ball of the over, Chris Jordan trapped Nosthush Kenjige in lbw. He bowled a 141.3kph ball that was full, quick and on the target. The batter missed the flick and was hit on the front pad. Although the USA player went for DRS, it looked plumb right from the moment it hit the ball. 

On the 5th ball of the over, Chris Jordan castled Saurabh Netravalkar with a 141 kmph delivery. He bowled a fuller ball to which the batter stayed leg-side to drive. He plays outside the line and gets beaten comprehensively on the inside edge as the ball crashes into the middle stump.

Unbelievable feeling ' Chris Jordan after taking a hat-trick 

Chris talked about his hat-trick against the USA, saying that it's an unbelievable feeling for him. He also talked about the team's efforts and stated that points matter to them. Speaking to broadcasters, he explained: 

"Unbelievable feeling (to take the hat trick), was good to restrict them. Getting it (hattrick) at a special place (Barbados - his birthplace) is always nice. Glad I was able to hit on the target. Just finished it off towards the end. 

"We summed up the conditions pretty well, we knew they would come hard at us in the powerplay, the USA have been playing well in the tournament. Rashid set up the game for us. Points first and foremost."
