Unheard of: Future cricket star takes six wickets in a row
Bedford Cricket Club could be nurturing the next Ellyse Perry with a 14-year-old girl taking six wickets from six balls in last weekend’s match.
Fast bowler Abby Howes took the six consecutive wickets across two overs in a match against Coolbinia. She told Oliver Peterson, “it was amazing.”
Her father Daniel said there has been heated discussion over what to call her achievement. Four wickets is known as a “double hat trick” but this one had people stumped.
“This one is a quad hat-trick”, he said.
“Well that was the popular opinion on Facebook anyway.”
