Malinga becomes leading wicket-taker in T20Is

Veteran Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga has gone past former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s tally of 98 wickets to become the leading wicket-taker in T20 internationals.
On Sunday, Malinga took two wickets for 23 runs in his four overs during the first T20I against New Zealand, taking his wickets’ tally to 99 and leave behind Afridi who had taken 99 matches to scalp 98 wickets.
The right-arm pacer bowled Colin Munro in the first over of the New Zealand chase to take his tally to 98 wickets. He then cleaned up Colin de Grandhomme, for 44 to achieve the feat in the 74th T20I match of his illustrious career.
