Colombo - Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi claimed his 300th wicket in one-day internationals during his team's Cricket World Cup Group A match against Sri Lanka on Saturday.

Afridi picked up the wicket of Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara to achieve the feat in his 314th ODI. He became the 11th bowler in the world to have 300 or more wickets.

Sangakkara holed out to Ahmed Shehzad at mid on after scoring 49 runs and was also Afridi's third wicket of the innings.

Sri Lanka offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan holds the world record with 522 wickets. Pakistan's Wasim Akram (502) and Waqar Younis (416) are at second and third place respectively.
