Mustafizur Rahman became the quickest Bangladeshi to 50 T20I wickets during their fourth match of the tri-nation series against Zimbabwe at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong Wednesday.

Stuck on 49 before the game, the Fizz bagged two wickets in his 33rd T20I appearance, surpassing captain Shakib al Hasan, who had taken 50 wickets in 42 matches.

These two are the only Bangladeshis with more than 50 T20I wickets to their name.

Meanwhile, Shakib has the opportunity to become only the fourth cricketer in history to take 350 wickets in T20s when Bangladesh take on Afghanistan in their last double round robin clash in the port city Saturday.

The West Indies’ Sunil Narine (376), Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga (385) and the Windies’ Dwayne Bravo (490) are ahead of Shakib in the list.

Shakib has 349 T20 wickets in 295 innings.
