Germany’s Indian-origin female cricketer and captain Anuradha Doddaballapur, a right-arm medium pacer, created history on Friday by notching up four wickets of as many deliveries as they beat Austria by 137 runs in the 4th T20I of their Austrian tour.
This is the first time in Women’s T20I cricket that a bowler has taken four wickets from four consecutive deliveries.
Anuradha has her roots in the Indian state of Karnataka.

Anuradha however wasn’t finished and Harjot Dhaliwal to complete her five-wicket haul. She finished with figures 1/5 and rewrote the history books as the first bowler to take four wickets of four consecutive deliveries.
Her teammate Anne Bierwisch also notched up a hat-trick in the previous T20I on August 13 against Austria.
