Shakib Al Hasan News: Bangladesh’s star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has surpassed former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi to become the highest wicket-taker in the history of T20 World Cup. Shakib achieved this feat by dismissing Pathum Nisanka in the Super 12 match against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Shakib had taken 39 wickets in 28 matches of the T20 World Cup before this match. Shakib, who took four for nine against Oman, first dismissed Afridi by dismissing Nisanka and then took his 41st wicket in Avishka Fernando. Afridi took 39 wickets in 34 matches. Shakib also tops the list of highest wicket-takers in T20 Internationals.
