“350 wickets in T20s… Alhumdulila another milestone, really thankful to [the] Almighty for his blessings,” Tanvir said on Twitter.
The 35-year-old currently sits in sixth place on the list of all-time wicket-takers in Twenty20 cricket.
He is only four wickets away from surpassing Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who has 354 wickets, and entering the top five.
