A Malaysian pacer Syazrul Idrus on Wednesday became the first man to register a seven-wicket haul in a T20I match. The 32-year-old cricketer achieved this feat against China in Kuala Lumpur during the opening game of T20 World Cup Asia B Qualifier on July 26.
With this feat, the Malaysian pacer broke Nigerian Peter Aho’s record for the best bowling figures in a men’s T20Is. Aho picked up 6 for 5 against Sierra Leone in 2021. However, India’s Deepak Chahar has the joint-third best record for his 6 for 7 against Bangladesh, which he achieved in 2019 alongside Dinesh Nakrani.
The Malaysia pacer finished registering figures of 7/8 in his four-over spell which involved a maiden over.
