Although international cricket in recent times has been dominated by batsmen, there has been a phase wherein the bowlers dominated the sport. In this article, we will have a look at five cricketers who clinched a hat-trick on their debut in international cricket.

In recent times, it looks as if the bowlers have lost the spark that their predecessors used to carry along with themselves. If we look at the 80s and 90s, pacers like Malcolm Marshal, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Glen McGrath had ruled the world of cricket with their pace and skill.

But, in modern cricket, there are hardly any pacers left who have had the reputation of being a deadly and fearsome bowler globally.

One probable reason behind this might also be the rules and regulations favouring the batsmen in the modern-day scenario. Fans too, usually remember the records made by the batsmen. But there is one record that every bowler wants to achieve.

Australia’s legendary fast bowler Damien Fleming created history by clinching a hat-trick on his Test debut in 1994. Fleming clinched this hat-trick against Pakistan on away soil. He troubled the Pakistan batsmen to a great extent with his pace and swing.

His first wicket in the hat-trick was of Aamir Sohail. He then sent back Inzamam-Ul-Haq back to the pavilion. Fleming picked his hat-trick by getting rid of Salim Malik.
