Dwayne Bravo creates history, becomes the first player to achieve this incredible feat in T20 cricket
Cricket is a batsman's game and most of the rules favour the batter, but there are some bowlers who dominate this sport. One such bowler is West Indies star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo. The 38-year-old is one of the best all-rounders that the game has seen and, at this age, he is still giving tough competition to other players.
It is very hard for the batsman to pick him because of his change-ups and slower ones. That is why he is a specialist in the death overs. He is currently representing Northern Superchargers in the ongoing second edition of The Hundred in England.
Bravo has now registered his name in the record books as he has become the first ever bowler to take 600 T20 wickets. He achieved this milestone against the Oval Invincibles on August 11. He took the wicket of England's all-rounder, Sam Curran, to create history. Earlier, he dismissed Rilee Rossouw as his 599th scalp.

While Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan is next on the list, he has picked up 466 wickets in his T20 career in 339 games. Bravo is one of the most popular names when it comes to T20 leagues across the globe and has played for over 25 different teams in his career.
In his international career for West Indies, he has taken 78 wickets in 91 games and the remaining 522 wickets have come in playing for franchise and domestic cricket. He is the leading wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League as well, with 183 scalps in 161 games.
The 38-year-old has already signed for the new UAE T20 league. The league revealed their next set of some big names from around the world on Thursday. The likes of Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Dwayne Bravo, Ollie Pope, Dasun Shanaka, and Fazalhaq Farooqi feature in the marquee list of the UAE T20 league.
