Shakib only player to the double of 100 wickets and 1K runs in T20Is
Shakib Al Hasan became the only player to have scalped 100 wickets and score more than 1000 runs in T20Is when he scalped the wicket of Australia's Ashton Turner during Bangladesh's fifth and final T20I against the Aussies at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today.
Shakib reached the milestone in the 12th over of the game when he had Turner cut a turning away delivery straight to the fielder at cover. With that wicket, he also became only the second player and first Bangladeshi to scalp 100 wickets in T20Is.
Shakib, playing in his 84th T20I, has already scored 1718 runs at an average slightly above 23.
The only other player to have reached the 100-wicket milestone in T20Is is Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga, who took 107 wickets in 84 matches.
South Africa's George Giffen (1896) was the first to 100 wickets and 1000 runs in Tests and England's Ian Botham (1985) was the first to do it in ODIs.
