Bangladesh premier all-rounder Shakib al Hasan has become the second player to bag 400 wickets and score more than 5000 runs in T20.

Shakib earned the feat during the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) when he dismissed Mahmudullah Riyad, who was caught at the cover by Dwyane Bravo.

The only other player to have reached double in T20 is West Indies DJ Bravo, who took 555 wickets in 514 matches and scored 6672 runs. While Shakib recorded 400 wickets with 5610 runs in 353 matches.

Imran Tahir is at number two in the list of wicket-takers. The leg-spinner has taken 435 wickets in 344 matches. Sunil Narine has taken 425 wickets in 383 matches at number three. Rashid Khan, who is at number four has taken 420 wickets in 300 matches.

Shakib made his debut in 2006 with Bangladesh's first T20I against Zimbabwe. The left-arm spinner took the wicket of Shaun Williams in that match.

Apart from playing for the Bangladesh team, Shakib has donned the jersey of several franchises in the Indian T20 League and Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

The southpaw also took part in Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Big Bash.
