BBL - Perth Scorchers v Brisbane Heat

Andrew Tye becomes the fastest bowler to claim 300 T20 wickets

Perth Scorchers fast bowler Andrew Tye picked up his 300th T20 wicket during the Big Bash League (BBL) final against the Brisbane Heat at the Perth Stadium on Saturday, February 4.

Tye achieved the feat when he dismissed James Bazley in the 20th over of the first innings. It was a low full-toss delivery on the off-stump that the batter tried to heave it to the leg-side, only to hole it out to the mid-wicket fielder.


With the wicket, the senior Australian pacer became the fastest to take 300 T20 wickets. He leapfrogged Rashid Khan, who achieved the milestone in 213 games.

Tye, on the other hand, reached the landmark in 211 games, two short of the star Afghan leg-spinner.

Fastest to take 300 Wickets in T20s. Faster than Rashid khan : Andrew Tye.

The Western Australian cricketer has been exceptional in the shortest format of the game since making his debut in 2014. He is a T20 globetrotter, having also played in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Last year, he was part of the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and featured in three games, picking up two wickets. Overall, Tye has taken 42 wickets, including three four-wicket hauls and a fifer, in 30 IPL games.
