Bangladesh left-arm bowler Mustafizur Rahman joined five other international bowlers who have taken 100 T20I wickets.

To become the second Bangladeshi after Shakib Al Hasan and the fourth-fastest overall, he took the wicket of Dawid Malan to reach the milestone. He is the third pacer on the list, by the way.

Mustafiz is participating in his 81st T20I game. In 33 games, he took his first 50 T20I wickets, but it took him 48 more to reach the century mark.

In his debut game in 2015, Shahid Afridi became his first T20I wicket.

With 134 wickets in 107 games, Tim Southee of New Zealand currently holds the record for most wickets in T20I cricket. In 112 games, Shakib is only four wickets behind him.
