Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan became the fastest bowler to reach the 100-T20I wicket milestone when the right-handed league spinner took two wickets in the Pakistan-Afghanistan match on Friday.

Spinner achieved this milestone when he took the wicket of Pakistan’s Muhammad Hafeez in Dubai while playing his 53rd T20 International.

He surpassed Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga to become the fastest bowler to do so. Malanga did this feat in 76 T20s, Rashid did it in 23 T20 matches less than the Sri Lankan bowler.

Rashid is only the fourth bowler to take 100 T20I wickets so far. Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan tops the chart with 117 wickets.

Lasith Malinga is second with 107 wickets while New Zealand’s Tim Southee has 100 T20 wickets.

The Afghan cricketer was named ICC’s T20I Player of the Decade last year for his outstanding performance in the shortest format of the game.
