Shakib Al Hasan breaks Lasith Malinga’s record to Become Highest Wicket-Taker in T20Is.


Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has created history on Sunday and becomes the highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals. Shakib claimed two wickets against Scotland in the T20 World Cup clash and pipped Lasith Malinga’s tally of 107 wickets

Shakib now has 108 scalps from 89 T20Is which makes him the only cricketer to have a double of 100 wickets and 1000 plus runs in this format.

Shakib, the greatest ever cricketer from his country, finished with figures of 2/17 in four overs and in the process surpassed the Sri Lankan great’s tally of T20 International wickets. Third on the list is New Zealand’s Tim Southee, who has 99 wickets to his name.
