Shakib becomes highest wicket-taker in T20Is

Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has touched a unique milestone in his first match in the T20 World Cup. He became the highest wicket-taker in Men's T20Is international with the wicket of Michael Leask.

Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga was the highest wicket-taker in international Twenty20 cricket with 107 wickets in 84 matches. Before this match, Shakib had 106 wickets from 88 matches.

Shakib sat next to Malinga after Richie Barrington was caught by Afif Hossain in the second ball of his third over. And he took only 2 balls to sit on the throne of the highest wicket-taker.

Michael Leask was caught by Liton Das in the fourth ball of the same over. With this, Shakib became the single highest wicket taker in international T20 cricket.
