McKay trapped Kevin Pietersen for 5, then enticed edges to the slip cordon from Jonathan Trott and Joe Root to reduce England to 8-3 at Sophia Gardens on Saturday. As it turned out later, his hat-trick was not enough for Australia as England chased down the 228-run target with three wickets in hand, thanks to an unbeaten 65 by Jos Buttler.

He became only the fifth Australian to take three wickets in successive balls in ODIs, and the 34th player in the history of the format.
