In the history of Twenty20 cricket, Rashid Khan is only the second player to ever accomplish this feat

On Monday, the 24-year-old Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan added another feather to his already distinguished career. Khan is regarded as one of the finest bowlers in the Twenty20 format, and he added this feather to his already illustrious career.

Rashid, who is now competing in the South African Twenty20 League for MI Cape Town, recently became only the second bowler in the history of the sport to achieve the milestone of taking 500 wickets in the game’s shortest format.

During the encounter against Pretoria Capitals, Rashid accomplished the feat by removing Clyde Fortuin from the game in the 14th over.

Dwayne Bravo, an all-rounder for the West Indies, is the only other cricket player to have taken 500 wickets in Twenty20 matches. As of right now, Bravo has taken 614 wickets in his career.

Rashid has established himself as a formidable player in Twenty20 competitions all around the world in addition to being an indispensable member of the Afghanistan cricket team for a significant amount of time.

The spinner finished the game against MI Cape Town with the best bowling numbers among his teammates: three wickets for sixteen runs in four overs.

Rashid was on the edge of making history, and he was able to bamboozle Fortuin with an exceptional delivery throughout their conversation. The batsman managed to get out by edging the ball against his stumps as the ball shifted slightly while it was in the air.

However, despite the spinner’s best efforts, the Capitals were able to pull ahead and win the match by a score of 52 runs.

Will Jacks took the initiative for the Capitals by scoring a half century off of just 19 balls. Despite the fact that seven wickets were lost in the final 13 overs, Kusal Mendis and Theunis de Bruyn played fast knocks to bring their team’s total up to 182.

In the MI Cape Town innings, Dewald Brevis appeared to be in excellent form; however, Wayne Parnell and Anrich Nortje took three wickets apiece, which proved to be the decisive cause in the team’s loss of a significant amount of ground.
