South African spinner makes history with T20 World Cup hat-trick

Adison Landsman of South Africa’s U19 Women’s team wrote herself into the record books with a superb and match-defining hat-trick on the third day of the ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup 2023.


The leg-spinning all-rounder stepped up to bowl the 15th over of the second innings against Scotland, with the run rate climbing but the chase still alive in what had been a tight encounter in Benoni.

But the 18-year-old put South Africa on the verge of a superb win, their first of the tournament, with three wickets in three balls to leave the Scots reeling on 60/8.

Madison Landsman picks up first-ever hat-trick in U19 Women’s T20 World Cup history
Madison Landsman became the first-ever player to register a hat-trick in ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup history during South Africa’s Group D clash against Scotland.
A flighted delivery with the second ball of the over tempted Maryam Faisal into a big shot, but she was deceived in the air and a top edge looped up to give keeper Karabo Meso a simple catch.

Niamh Muir was lured into a drive off the next delivery, spooning the ball into the covers where captain Oluhle Siyo clung on to the catch at the second attempt.

And, with expectation rising and the field closing in, Landsman stepped up for the hat-trick ball with a chance to make history. The spinner gave it plenty of flight and again lured the batter into a poor choice of shot, with Orla Montgomery looking for the big heave and completely missing the ball, which clattered into off-stump.
