Rashid Khan Becomes the Fastest Player to Take 500 Wickets in T20 Cricket History

Rashid Khan completed 500 T20 wickets making him the youngest and the fastest player in history to do so.

Rashid Khan completed 500 T20 wickets at the young age of 24, making him the youngest and the fastest player in history to do so. Only two players in history (Rashid included) have reached this milestone. In the game’s shortest format, the cricketing superstar from Afghanistan has joined Dwayne Bravo in the exclusive club of players with 500 wickets.

During a match between MI Cape Town and Pretoria Capitals at the lovely Newlands Stadium in the ongoing South Africa T20 League (SA T20), Rashid reached the milestone. Rashid, who is captaining MI Cape Town in the league’s inaugural season, bowled an outstanding spell in which he claimed three wickets while only allowing 16 runs to be scored.

He reached the milestone by dismissing Cylde Fortuin, who scored just 11 runs in 14 innings. The Capitals put up an impressive score of 182 despite Rashid’s incredible spell, which saw him dismiss Kusal Mendis and Rilee Rossouw as well. Will Jacks gave the visitors a strong start with a stunning 62-ball batting performance.

Speaking of Rashid, he is undoubtedly a cricketer who has blazed new trails and helped to establish Afghanistan as a competitive nation. He has dominated club and international cricket all over the world thanks to his outstanding T20 stats. He is a strong candidate to be the best T20 player of all time even at this young age.
