Shakib on the verge of creating history17 October 2021
BSS, Dhaka :
Bangladesh ace allrounder Shakib Al Hasan is on the verge of reaching another milestone as he needs just 10 wickets to be the highest wicket taker in Twenty20 World Cup history.
Shakib who joined Bangladesh team bubble on Saturday after his IPL commitments is at No. 7 at this moment with 30 wickets. But still he has the chance of being the No. 1 because none of the six cricketers above him are in the World Cup this time.
So if he could thrive with cherry, he can quickly rise to the top. Shakib's 30 wickets came in 25 matches at an average of 19.53 and with economy rate of 6.84.
The bowlers who are above Shakib Al Hasan at this moment is South Africa's Dale Steyn with 30 wickets in 23 matches, Pakistan's Umar Gul with 35 wickets in 24 matches, Sri Lanka's Ajantha Mendis with 35 scalps in 21 matches, Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal with 36 wickets in 23 matches, Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga with 38 wickets in 31 matches and Pakistan's Shaheed Afridi with 39 wickets in 34 matches.
