Wanindu Hasaranga joins elite T20I list with massive career milestone

Date:

 Sri Lankan spin sensation Wanindu Hasaranga became just the second Sri Lankan to take 100 T20I wickets.

Hasaranga breached the 100-wicket barrier in T20Is, becoming the eleventh player overall and second Sri Lankan bowler after Lasith Malinga to reach the milestone.

The leg-spinner, who is currently the captain of the T20I side, achieved the feat during the second T20I against Afghanistan in Dambulla.

Hasaranga has taken more wickets than any other bowler in men’s T20Is since his debut in 2019, an ICC report said.

Malinga is the only other Sri Lankan bowler to take more than 100 T20I wickets. While Malinga achieved the milestone in his 76th T20I, Hasaranga did so in his 63rd.

This makes him the second-fastest to 100 T20I wickets after Rashid Khan, who achieved the same in 53 matches in 2021.

Hasaranga, who finished with figures of 2/19 in his four overs in Dambulla on Monday, now has 101 wickets in 63 T20Is at an average of 15.36 and an economy rate of 6.78.

Sri Lanka beat Afghanistan in the second T20I to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
