Rashid Khan broke Sri Lankan Lasith Malinga's long-standing record to become the fastest
bowler to pick 100 wickets in Twenty-20 international cricket.

Scorecard | Highlights | News

The Afghanistan leg-spinner reached this milestone, in the 53rd match, by dismissing veteran Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez in their Super 12 match of ICC T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai on Friday (October 29).

Former Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga had held the previous record by completing his
century in 76 matches ahead of New Zealand seamer Tim Southee (82 matches) and Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan (83 matches).

They are also the only four bowlers to bag 100 wickets in the shortest format of international cricket.

Rashid Khan now holds the rare double record of being the fastest bowler to pick 100 wickets
in One Day Internationals and Twenty 20 Internationals. He achieved the feat in the 50-over format in his 44th match in 2018.

Bangladesh’s slow left-arm orthodox bowler, Shakib Al Hasan holds the record for most wickets in T20Is, overtaking Malings during the ongoing T20 World Cup.
