In 1858, while playing for the All-England 11, English cricketer HH Stephenson took three consecutive wickets in a match against Hallam in Sheffield.
As was customary at the time, fans had a collection for Stephenson and then bought him a hat to honour his unique feat.
The 'hat-trick' as it became known, was soon adopted by many other sports.
At the end of the 1859 English cricket season, Stephenson was one of the 12 players who took part in cricket's first-ever overseas tour - visiting the United States and Canada.
Stephenson also captained England in 1861-62 on the first ever Australian tour. He is the first player featured on a mural in the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) pavilion showing many of the famous cricketers who have played on that ground.
