Rashid Khan became the fourth player in T20 cricket to pick 400 wickets, when he achieved the feat in Afghanistan's Super 12 match against New Zealand in the T20 World Cup in Abu Dhabi.

Khan dismissed Martin Guptill to get to the landmark. He tossed up a wrong 'un, only for Guptill to fall bait to it and go for a slog and miss it. The leg-spinner's first T20 was in 2015 when he played against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo. He had dismissed Sikandar Raza for his first victim in the format.

Khan joins Imran Tahir (420), Sunil Narine (425) and Dwayne Bravo (553) in the list and is the youngest of the lot. With about at least a decade of career to go, Khan looks primed to scale all heights of T20 cricket.
