Rabada was named Man of the Match after taking three wickets to help South Africa beat New Zealand by eight wickets in a stunning comeback, having been bowled out for just 92 runs in their previous game against India.

He said: “It’s an amazing feeling to be part of this team and these guys have been great throughout this tournament.”

Rabada’s hat-trick was the first in a World Cup match, beating Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis’ feat against England in 1992. It was also his second career hat-trick and fifth overall for South Africa in ODIs (one each against Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh).

In terms of World Cups alone, Rabada becomes only the third player after Australia legspinner Shane Warne (three) and India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (two) who have taken two hattricks during their careers at ICC tournaments — though he has yet to do so at any tournament outside those hosted by Cricket West Indies Ltd., whose governing body has been renamed from West Indies Cricket Board.*

South Africa’s Lungi Ngidi became the first bowler in ODI history to take a hat-trick during a World Cup match, as he dismissed Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and Tim Southee in four balls within 17 minutes of play World Cup hat-trick.

The left-arm fast bowler was called into action after Bangladesh had posted 304 for 3 at Lord’s on Tuesday (June 4). The conditions were favourable for seam bowling but Ngidi took full advantage of it by dismissing New Zealand’s top three batsmen with relative ease.

After removing opener Guptill for 2 runs off his first ball with an inswinger which trapped him plumb in front of middle stump, Ngidi got rid of Munro by trapping him lbw off an outswinger next ball. The third wicket fell when Southee played around one that came back sharply off the pitch, hitting his pads before ricocheting onto his stumps

He had taken two wickets from seven deliveries when he removed opener Guptill with a scrambled seam delivery that nipped back into the stumps. Rabada then took former world champions Munro and Southee for ducks in quick succession.
