Aussie star Megan Schutt has become the first woman to take two hat-tricks in international cricket.

Schutt became the first Australian woman to take a hat-trick in ODI cricket on Wednesday, snaring three wickets from the final three balls of the West Indies’ innings.

It gave her two hat-tricks in international cricket - the first woman to achieve that incredible feat.

Her first came in a T20 against India in 2018, which she completed over two overs.

"It was good to actually take it all in the one over," Schutt told cricket.com.au.

"It's kind of luck of the draw, it was the last over of the innings so you're either getting hit for six or getting wickets.”

Schutt is just the seventh Australian - male or female - to take a hat-trick in a one-dayer.

Aussies keep winning streak alive

The Aussies chased down the Windies’ total of 181 in the 32nd over, giving them a 3-0 clean sweep and a 15th-straight ODI win.

Meg Lanning (58 not out) and Alyssa Healy (61) starred with the bat as Australia won by eight wickets.
