Dubai, Oct 18: The Netherlands won the toss and chose to bat first in Match 3 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. But the Dutch got off to a disastrous start with opener Ben Cooper run out from his first ball faced and just the third delivery of the innings.
A massive misunderstanding between Cooper and fellow opener Max O’Dowd left Simi Singh with the simple task of throwing it to bowler Paul Stirling to whip off the bails.
Campher picked up Colin Ackermann, Ryan ten Doeschate, Scott Edwards and Roelof van der Merwe in four consecutive balls in his second over and the tenth of the innings to put Ireland firmly in control and leave the Dutch 52/6.
Campher becomes the third man in T20I history to take four in four, and the first to do so in a T20 World Cup match. Only Rashid Khan and Lasith Malinga have also managed the feat, both in 2019.
