Cricket : Afridi becomes highest wicket-taker in T20 internationals

DUBAI  – The superstar of national cricket team and captain of the Twenty20 team Shahid Afridi has named another big record of grabbing most T20 international wickets after the recent England and Pakistan match played in Dubai.

England who had not only won the second T20 but had also secured the whole series by 2-0.

During the match, the star player Afridi co-incidentally broke the record of his team mate and long term bowling partner Saeed Ajmal after dismissing England s James Vince. He has 86 wickets in 86 T20I games and could reach 100 until he retires after the World T20 in few months.

However, all three bowlers in the list of highest wicket-takers in the T20 International are from Pakistan.

The all-rounder also has the record for the most sixes in International Cricket and held the record forthe fastest century in the One-Day International (ODI) Cricket for 17 years. He can be the first player to reach 100 wickets in T20.

There are five Pakistanis in top 13 as Muhammad Hafeez is on the 10th spot with 46 wickets and Sohail Tanvir is on 13th with 45 and needs only few more wickets to reach top 10, which might happen in the third T20 game of the series against England.
