Shoaib Malik is approaching the title record of West Indian legends
Pakistan's veteran middle-tier batsman, Shoaib Malik, is one of the most sought-after players in the T20 franchise cricket leagues around the world. The experienced all-rounder is one of the most successful T20 players in the world and has an outstanding record in the shortest game format.
Malik added another T20 title as he played an influential role in the Jaffna Kings' title win in the recently concluded Lanka Premier League (LPL). The Jaffna Kings were able to maintain their title when they defeated the Galle Gladiators with 23 runs in the final.
Jaffna won both editions of the tournament thanks to its high profile squad that included Wahab Riaz, Wanindu Hasaranga and Thisara Perera.
This was Malik's 14th title in T20 cricket, the third highest in the world. Only West Indian modern legends Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard, who won 16 and 15 titles respectively, have won more T20 titles than Malik.
