During a Canadian armed services cricket match between the 9th Brigade of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces and the Canadian ASC at St. Omer, France in the summer of 1917, J. Leake returned the outstanding bowling analysis of 10 wickets for 0 runs.

The first recorded occasion of a bowler taking all the wickets in an innings in a Canadian cricket match occurred in 1848 when slow under-arm bowler H.J. (Harry) Maddock captured 10 wickets for the Toronto Cricket Club against the Rifle Brigade. Maddock returned figures of 10 for 16 and old reports indicate that all ten batsmen were clean bowled.

In the summer of 1905, T.W. Dyson captured 20 wickets for 46 runs for the Mimico Asylum Cricket Club against the Gordon Mackay Cricket Club during a 12-a-side match at Toronto. His figures were 9 wickets in the first innings and all 11 wickets in the second innings during which he performed the hat-trick.

The record of most wickets taken with consecutive balls in Canadian cricket appears to be held by F.M.

Fred Pellatt was the brother of the famous financier Sir Henry M. Pellatt the builder of Casa Loma in Toronto.

The first recorded hat-trick by a Canadian bowler in international play occurred at Toronto in September 1895 when paceman J.M. (Jack) Laing clean bowled J.W. Sharp, S. Goodman and L.K. Mallinkdrodt of the United States with successive deliveries at the Rosedale Cricket Club.
