Haris Rauf scripts history with 100 T20I wickets

During Tuesday’s T20 World Cup match against Canada, Pakistan’s fast bowler Haris Rauf achieved a significant milestone. Despite recent criticism for his performances, Rauf regained form and took two wickets as Pakistan restricted Canada to 106/7 in 20 overs.

Rauf’s first wicket, Shreyas Movva, marked his entry into the list of players with 100 wickets in T20 Internationals (T20I). He became the third fastest to reach this milestone, following Rashid Khan and Wanindu Hasaranga. It took Rauf 71 matches to achieve this feat.

Additionally, Rauf became the second Pakistani player to accomplish this after spinner Shadab Khan.

Here’s the list of players and the number of matches it took them to claim 100 wickets in T20I:

  1. Rashid Khan (AFG) – 53 matches
  2. Wanindu Hasaranga (SL) – 63 matches
  3. Haris Rauf (PAK) – 71 matches
  4. Mark Adair (IRE) – 72 matches

Pakistan chose to bowl first and showcased their bowling prowess, limiting Canada to a modest total of 106. Despite their efforts, Canada only managed to score 106 runs.

In response, Pakistan’s batting was steady and assured. Captain Babar Azam played a crucial role with a run-a-ball innings, setting the stage for a comfortable chase. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan played a gritty and important innings, scoring a determined fifty to guide Pakistan to victory.
