New Zealand’s Tim Southee became the leading wicket-taker in Twenty20 internationals during the T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 match against Australia in Sydney on Saturday.
Southee surpassed Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan’s tally of 122 wickets in his 101st match with the scalp of David Warner with his first ball during Australia’s 201-run chase.
The 33-year-old also became New Zealand’s joint-leading wicket-taker in T20 World Cup, equalling Nathan McCullum with his 23rd wicket.
Southee is also New Zealand’s most successful pacer across all formats, with 669* wickets from 337 matches. During the 2021 T20 World Cup, where New Zealand finished runner-up, Southee became the third bowler after Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga and Shakib to notch up 100-plus wickets in all formats of the game.
