Second hattrick at World Cup

6:17 am on 2 March 2011

Last night's Sri Lanka-Kenya match at the Cricket World Cup has produced the tournament's second hattrick in 24 hours.

The Sri Lankan speedster Lasith Malinga became the first bowler to take two hattricks at World Cups as he led his side to a nine-wicket win over Kenya.

The re's been a second hattrick in 24 hours at the Cricket World Cup, and Sri Lanka's

Malinga roared back to fitness after missing the first two games with a sore back to finish with a career best 6 wickets for 38 as Kenya were dismissed for 142, after they'd been 102-2 and Sri Lanka reached their target in less than 20 overs.

At the 2007 World Cup 2007, Malinga took four wickets in four balls against South Africa.
