Shadab Khan, the stand-in captain of Pakistan, made history on Monday by taking the 100th wicket in a Twenty20 match against Afghanistan in Sharjah.
Khan became the first Pakistani bowler to achieve this historic milestone with three wickets under his belt, receiving widespread accolades on social media.
Khan’s achievement places him in an exclusive club of only seven bowlers worldwide who have taken 100 T20I wickets, including Tim Southee, Shakib Al Hasan, Rashid Khan, Ish Sodhi, Lasith Malinga, and Mustafizur Rehman.
It’s important to note that Nida Dar, an all-rounder for Pakistan’s women’s side, has 100 wickets in T20 international cricket.
A series sweep over Afghanistan in Sharjah has been avoided thanks to Pakistan’s victory in the third T20I. Pakistan put on a strong showing after dropping the first two games, holding their opponents to a total of 183 runs while smashing them by 66 runs to win the series 2-1.
The team’s impressive showing demonstrated their skill and determination, and fans are undoubtedly eager to see what they will accomplish in the future.
