Six wickets in an over is not a dream anymore

Every bowler comes with a wish of a hat-trick in a match but Aussie bloke Aled Corey has gone a step ahead from hat-trick and pulled off something one couldn’t imagine. Six deliveries and six wickets - the dream for almost all bowlers of the cricketing world have been bowled and there’s no other way to make a perfect over now.

In a match of Ballarat Cricket Association fourth-team fixture, the club cricketer Aled Corey achieved the rare feat while playing for Golden Point Cricket Club vs East Ballarat. Corey was wicketless in his first eight overs but the crowd witnessed suddenly a completely changed scenario by the time he started bowling the ninth of his overs.

In ninth over, his first three wickets came out through a catch at first slip, a caught behind by the wicketkeeper and a leg-before-wicket to complete his hat-trick, however, hat-trick celebrations has hardly died down when he achieved extraordinary second hat-trick in the same over. Be delivering his fourth delivery, he clean bowled his last three victims and became the first player to complete the double hat-trick in any match ever. Corey conceded only 20 runs in nine overs and Ballarat bundled out for just 40, reported by BBC.

Representing the Golden Point Cricket Club since 14 years, Aled Corey first appeared to cricket when he was 9 years old. For the rest of his life, Aussie star will be telling his family, friends and his people the great story after achieving this almost remarkable feat in his life.

 “I was shocked and overwhelmed. I still cannot believe it. I'm very happy. My dad was present at the time and saw the whole thing. He was very happy and proud of me”, Corey expressed his excitement after achieving the landmark.

"A couple of times I've been pretty close to a hat-trick, probably three or four times in my life, but I've never been lucky enough to get that third one. I’m still in a bit shock,” Corey added.
