ICC T20 World Cup: Tim Southee becomes the highest-wicket taker in T20 Internationals

New Zealand pacer Tim Southee now becomes the highest wicket taker for the T20 format as Southee dominates the list in the the shortest format of international cricket.

Tim Southee completed this achievement while playing a crucial game against Sri Lanka in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022, where Sri Lanka faced a maiden-wicket over in the very first over of the New Zealand’s bowling innings where Southee silenced the Sri Lankan crowds.


The second player who climbs up the list with Southee for the most wickets in T20 Internationals, is Shakib Al Hasan and Rashid Khan. While Shakib is just one wicket away from Southee, whereas Rashid is 7 wickets away, being the third highest wicket-taker in the same list.
