Pacer Mustafizur Rahman has become the second Bangladeshi bowler to reach 100 wickets in Twenty20 internationals.

His 100th scalp in his 81st match of the format came in the Tigers’ third T20I against England on Tuesday when the Fizz removed Dawid Malan, who gave a simple catch to wicketkeeper Liton Das.

Mustafiz is the sixth bowler to achieve this feat in international cricket, second for Bangladesh behind Shakib Al Hasan, who currently has 130 wickets.

Mustafiz made his debut against Pakistan in 2015, where he had picked up two wickets for 20 runs.
