Fastest 50 in IPL

 

The IPL is held every year in March, April, and May and lasts roughly seven weeks. The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a franchise-based tournament with eight teams, each representing a different Indian region. An auction was conducted when the tournament was first established to decide the cities on which the teams will be located, as well as the owners of each team.

The suspension of the IPL 2021 has sparked a lot of debate over the BCCI's next step in regards to the rescheduling of the Indian Premier League 2021. If the IPL 2021 is resurrected during this window, it will only be after the end of the T20 World Cup, which will take place between October 18 and November 15. The BCCI, on the other hand, has yet to have any confirmation on the tournament's final start date.

The IPL is a style in which the game will shift dramatically in a matter of overs, making it impossible for teams to rebound if they fall behind too much. A batsman will also shift gears at a breakneck pace, leaving the opposition with little chance of controlling the flood of runs. Here is the discussion on fastest 50 in IPL:

Fastest fifties in IPL history: Covid-19

Indian opener KL Rahul holds the record for scoring 50 runs in the fewest number of balls. In an IPL 2018 game against the Delhi side, he scored a half-century in just 14 deliveries. Rahul scored 51 runs off 16 balls in this innings, including six fours and four sixes. Punjab won the match by 6 wickets after chasing down the 167-run mark in 18.5 overs. Karun Nair also added to the team's victory with a 50-run knock of 33 balls that included five fours and two sixes. Yusuf Pathan and Sunil Narine shared the record for fastest fifty in IPL, which Rahul smashed.

Yusuf Pathan played one of the most spectacular and had the fastest fifty inT20 innings of all time in the IPL 2014 match. The Kolkata Knight Riders were seeking 161 runs in the match and wanted to do so in 15.2 overs to finish second in the points table and have a chance to play in the tournament final. During his innings, Yusuf shattered 72 runs off just 22 balls and hit 50 runs in just 15 balls. Yusuf's incredible hitting helped KKR reach the target in 14.2 overs, putting them in second place.

KKR was chasing 159 runs in the IPL 2017 game, and Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine totally destroyed the RCB pace attack of bowling. In just six overs, they put up a 100-run partnership. Narine scored his half-century in just 15 deliveries, which was the joint-fastest at the time. KKR won the match by 6 wickets after chasing down the necessary total in 15.1 overs.

If the all-time non-hundred IPL innings of players are mentioned, Suresh Raina's incredible knock in the IPL 2014 qualifier could come in first. CSK were chasing a massive total of 227 runs in this vital match to secure a spot in the final. CSK had a great start, scoring 100 runs on the powerplay to place KXIP on the back foot. Raina was responsible for 87 of the 100 runs. However, on the first ball of the seventh over, he was run out, putting his team's dreams in jeopardy. Raina slammed a fifty in just 16 bats, hitting a total of 12 fours and six sixes. In their 20 overs, CSK could only manage 202/7, losing by 24 runs.

In terms of hitting IPL fastest 50, there are eight players tied for fifth place, with all of them touching the target in 17 balls. Chris Gayle, who smashed 175 runs off 66 balls against Pune Warriors in an IPL 2013 contest, has the highest score of them all. Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Adam Gilchrist, Nicholas Pooran, Chris Morris, and Sunil Narine are among the other players on the list.
