Shadab Khan is enjoying a fantastic season in the PSL 7. He collected 14 wickets in the opening round of the event, including his maiden five-wicket haul. This won him the Fazal Mehmood hat, which Shadab has kept thus far, as well as 200 T20 wickets.

Shadab Khan currently has the most wickets of any spinner in a single PSL season. Shadab Khan, who has 17 wickets in the present PSL 7, has surpassed Umer Khan, who got 15 dismissals in the previous season.

With the tournament’s second round only beginning, Islamabad United’s captain has the opportunity to smash even more records. He is now the third-highest wicket-taker in PSL history, after only Wahab Riaz’s 98 and Hasan Ali’s 78. Hassan Ali now holds the record for most wickets in a single edition of the Pakistan Super League, but given Shadab Khan’s incredible success, the bar does not appear to be too high for the star spinner.
