Another landmark 🚩 for @rashidkhan_19

Adding his name to the elite panel, Rashid became the fourth bowler after Dwayne Bravo (553 wickets), Sunil Narine (425 wickets), Imran Tahir (420 wickets) to enter the 400-wicket club.
Earlier, Rashid had also become the quickest bowler to register 100 wickets in T20Is in the ongoing T20 World Cup.
Rashid also holds the record for most T20 scalps in a calendar year, having picked a staggering 96 wickets in 2018.
Rashid is only the fourth man, after Tim Southee, Shakib Al Hasan and Lasith Malinga, to achieve the milestone of 100 wickets in T20Is.
Rashid picked his 100th wicket in only his 53rd match, surpassing Sri Lankan pace legend Lasith Malinga’s previous record of reaching the landmark in his 76th game.
