Brace (sports)


Brace (sports)

A brace is the act of taking two wickets with two successive deliveries of the ball. The term brace is not very commonly used, especially compared to a hat-trick, and after a bowler has taken two wickets in a row, it is more common to say that they are "On a Hat-Trick".

This term is also sometimes used in football when a player scores twice in one game.
