Kuldeep in elite club
Kuldeep claimed his first against Australia at Kolkata's Eden Gardens in 2017 to join India's ODI hat-trick club that includes Chetan Sharma, Kapil Dev and Shami. However no Indian bowler has taken more than one hat-trick across formats.
Kuldeep also joins international bowlers Lasith Malinga (Sri Lanka), Wasim Akram (Pakistan), Chaminda Vaas (Sri Lanka), Saqlain Mushtaq (Pakistan) and Trent Boult (New Zealand) to pick up more than one hat-trick in ODIs.
While Malinga leads the list with three ODI hat-tricks, all the others have picked up two in the 50-over format. Kuldeep, 25, who has a hat-trick in U19 cricket, has taken 99 wickets in 55 ODIs since his debut in 2017.
