Shaheen Afridi breaks the record of Jasprit Bumrah in T20 Cricket

Nowadays, Shaheen Shah Afridi is one of the world's best pacers. Since his debut in international cricket in 2018, he has become Pakistan's go-to bowler.

Since then, in every format of the game, he had never looked back and bought his name. Jasprit Bumrah, the youngest rapid bowler to reach the 100 T20 wicket milestone, recently overtook Afridi Indian pacer.


The record moment has come when Afridi got Chris Lynn's best at the start of the match against the Multan Sultans.

Bumrah made her debut when she was 19, and at the age of 23 years and 57 days, she achieved her hallmark. On the other hand, Afridi has a big lead over his Indian rival who at the age of 20 years and 326 days reached the 100 T20 Wicket milestone.

Overall, Rashid Khan in Afghanistan is the leader in 100 wicket-taking youngest bowlers. To date, the T20 prodigy has 344 scalps to its name and count, at the age of 22 years and 160 days.

The T20 debut of Afridi came when he represented Lahore Qalandars in PSL 4 in February 2018. A month later he made his first T20I debut against the visiting side of the West Indies on the national side of Pakistan.


He was selected for the Asia Cup team in August 2018 where he made his ODI debut in September against Afghanistan. Shortly after, he was the key component for Pakistan bowling.

In 15 Tests, 22 ODIs, and 21 T20Is, Afridi has represented Pakistan and has 117 international wickets on its behalf.
