Yuzvendra Chahal overtook pacer Jasprit Bumrah to become the leading wicket-taker for India in T20Is during the first T20I against Sri Lanka at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow on Thursday. The leg-spinner picked up his 67th wicket in his 53rd T20I to reclaim the crown. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is third on the list with 61 wickets from 51 games. Chahal surpassed Bumrah by removing Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka, who holed out to Bhuvneshwar Kumar at backward point while trying to execute a revere-sweep.
