Lockie Ferguson’s record-breaking spell of achieving a three-fer without conceding a run


New Zealand’s decision to field first after winning the toss proved to be a masterstroke, as they quickly gained the upper hand against Papua New Guinea. Early in the powerplay, PNG’s top-order batsmen, Tony Ura and Assad Vala, were unable to contribute significantly and were dismissed early.

Despite Sese Bau and Charles Amini’s efforts to stabilize the innings with a 27-run partnership, the Kiwi bowlers, spearheaded by Lockie Ferguson, quickly regained control. Ferguson, in particular, made headlines with an exceptional and record-breaking bowling performance.

The 33-year-old Ferguson struck first in the fifth over with a superb full-length delivery to dismiss Vala. He continued his impressive form by removing Amini in the 12th over. In his final over, Ferguson’s devastating spell was highlighted by the dismissal of Chad Soper, a crucial breakthrough.

Remarkably, Ferguson bowled the maximum number of maiden overs in the match, not conceding a single run across his four overs while taking three vital wickets.

Both the New Zealand team and social media erupted in celebration, applauding Ferguson for his outstanding bowling display and recognizing his exceptional achievement on the field.
