Shakib becomes highest wicket-taker in T20Is

Shakib Al Hasan, the ace all-rounder of the game of cricket, has become the highest wicket-taker in T20 internationals.

During today's second T20I between Bangladesh and Ireland at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, he achieved the record by taking five wickets.

Shakib surpassed New Zealand's Tim Southee to move to the top of the list for most T20I wickets when he scalped the wicket of George Dockrell in the sixth over.

The Bangladeshi bowling sensation has already bagged a fifer in the game, his T20I wickets tally reaching 136 in 114 matches. Southee, second in the list, has 134 wickets in 107 T20Is.
