Nida Dar, a bowling all-rounder from Pakistan, has taken 126 wickets in 123 innings to become the greatest wicket-taker in Women’s Twenty20 International cricket. On February 21 in Cape Town, during a World Cup match against England, Dar accomplished this remarkable achievement.
Heather Knight was decapitated by Dar, who claimed the valuable scalp. In the absence of usual captain and all-rounder Bismah Maroof, she was in charge of the Pakistani team.
England scored 213/5 in the allowed 20 overs while batting first, opening the door for the side to win by an enormous margin of 114 runs. Despite the unsatisfactory outcome of the match, Dar was able to establish a personal best.
The 34-year-old Anisa Mohammed is second on the coveted list of top wicket-takers, trailing only Megan Schutt and Ellyse Perry of Australia. Both Australian players have taken 122 wickets in 137 and 94 T20 Internationals, respectively.
Deepti Sharma of India is seventh on the list with 101 wickets.
