  1. Chetan Sharma – He became the first Indian bowler to pick a hat-trick in international cricket. He achieved the feat during the 24th match of the Reliance World Cup between India and New Zealand at Nagpur. Captain of New Zealand, Jeff Crowe, won the toss and chose to bat. The Kiwis lost wickets at regular intervals. Chetan Sharma made matters worse by dismissing Ken Rutherford, Ian Smith and Ewen Chatfield, reducing New Zealand to 182-8.
  2. Harbhajan Singh – He became the first Indian bowler to pick a hat-trick in Test cricket. He achieved the feat during the second Test of Australia’s tour of India in 2001 at Kolkata, a match predominantly remembered for VVS Laxman’s 281. Australian captain, Steve Waugh, won the toss and elected to bat. Australia were looking comfortable at 251-4, but, this was the time when Harbhajan dismissed Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne in succession.
  3. Irfan Pathan – He bagged a Test match hat-trick in the first over of a Test match. Pakistan captain, Younis Khan, won the toss and chose to bat at Karachi. Pakistan lost Salman Butt, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf on the last three balls of the first over to be reduced to 0-3.
