Pat Cummins Hits Joint Fastest Fifty

Pat Cummins scored the fastest fifty in IPL history as Kolkata Knight Riders registered a blistering 5-wicket win over Mumbai Indians in IPL 2022 on Wednesday. Venkatesh Iyer also played an innings of 50 runs. With this win, KKR’s team has become number-1 in the points table. This is Mumbai’s third consecutive defeat.

Cummins, who scored 56 off 15 balls, completed 50 runs in 14 balls and equaled KL Rahul’s 4-year-old record. Rahul played for Punjab in the 2018 IPL and scored a fifty in 14 balls against Delhi. The record of fastest fifty in T20 cricket is in the name of Yuvraj Singh of India. Yuvraj scored a half-century in just 12 balls against England in the 2007 World Cup. Yuvi had hit 6 sixes in an over of Stuart Broad in that innings.
