A hat-trick in cricket is referred to when a bowler has taken three wickets in consecutive deliveries, dismissing three different batsmen with three consecutive balls bowled. It is a relatively rare event in One Day International (ODI) cricket with only 25 occurrences in over 2,800 matches since the first ODI, between Australia and England on 5 January 1971. The first ODI hat-trick was taken by Jalal-ud-Din of Pakistan, playing against Australia at Niaz Stadium in September 1982; the most recent was taken by Andrew Flintoff of England, playing against West Indies at Beausejour Stadium in April 2009.

Pakistani bowlers hold the record for the most ODI hat-tricks taken by a team with eight, including two hat-tricks taken by Wasim Akram and Saqlain Mushtaq. The only other bowler to have taken multiple hat-tricks is Chaminda Vaas of Sri Lanka. Hat-tricks are dominated by fast bowlers with Saqlain the only spinner to have taken an ODI hat-trick. Five hat-tricks have occurred in World Cup matches, the most important form of ODI cricket. The last was during the 2007 World Cup where Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga took four wickets in four balls against South Africa, the first person in international cricket to achieve this.

Pakistanis Wasim Akram and Mohammad Sami have both achieved hat-tricks in ODI and Test cricket. Brett Lee is the only cricketer to have taken a hat-trick in ODI and Twenty20 International cricket.
