Cricket is an exciting sport, and one of the game’s most exciting moments is when a player scores a half-century. When a batsman scores 50 runs or more in a single inning, the score is referred to as a half-century or a fifty. Even though it is a fantastic accomplishment for any player, there have been situations in which a batsman has hit a fifty in a blazingly quick amount of time.
Let’s look at the Top 5 Fastest Fifty in IPL History –
In the 14th game of the 2022 IPL season, Pat Cummins set an IPL record. While playing for Kolkata Knight Riders, he blasted a half-century against Mumbai Indians (MI) in just 14 balls.
Indian opener KL Rahul ties the record for scoring 50 runs in the fewest balls. In the IPL 2018 match against the Delhi team, he reached the half-century mark in just 14 balls.
Yusuf Pathan and Sunil Narine had shared the IPL record for the fastest fifty, which Rahul smashed. Yusuf Pathan played one of the greatest T20 innings ever during the IPL 2014 match.
In the current 2023 season, Nicholas Pooran smashed the top 5th fastest fifty in the IPL history (10-04-2023). Pooran smashed 15-ball half ton to bring the target closer after RCB smashed 212 in their first innings.
