Lasith Malinga the Srilankan speedster has overtaken Shahid Afridi to be the highest wicket taker in T20 cricket international. He has now 99 wickets in 74 matches and has overtaken the record of 98 wickets by Shahid Afridi. He has achieved the milestone after dismissing Colin de Grandhomme in the 1st T20 game between Srilanka and NewZealand. He needs 1 more wicket to make it 100, will he do that in this tournament? We have to wait and watch. TheNewsCrunch congratulates Malinga on this achievement.
Here is the official Tweet from ICC on Malinga’s achievement.
The leading wicket-taker in T20I history!
