Rashid Khan needed 44 games to get his 100th strike, shattering Mitchell Starc of Australia’s prior record of 52 games. He then became the swiftest spinner in T20I history to capture 50 strikes in June 2018. During the first T20I against Bangladesh, he attained the benchmark in 2 years and 220 days.
