51 off just 13 deliveries
Posted May 14, 2023 in IPL.
Yashasvi Jaiswal, a player for the Rajasthan Royals, has been performing exceptionally well in the IPL 2023. During a match against the Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, he set a new record by scoring the fastest 50 in IPL history, achieving this feat in just 13 balls. This surpassed the previous record held by KL Rahul and Pat Cummins, who both reached 50 in 14 balls while playing for Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders, respectively. Although Jaiswal’s 13-ball 50 is the quickest in IPL history, it ranks as the second-fastest 50 in the T20 format. The record for the fastest 50 in T20s is held by former Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, who achieved it in 12 balls against England in 2007.
|Yashasvi Jaiswal||13||Rajasthan Royals v Kolkata Knight Riders||Kolkata|
|KL Rahul||14||Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals||Mohali|

|YK Pathan||15||Kolkata Knight Riders v Sunrisers Hyderabad||Kolkata|
|SP Narine||15||Kolkata Knight Riders v Royal Challengers Bangalore||Bangalore|
|Nicholas Pooran||15||Lucknow Super Giants v Royal Challengers Bangalore|
Jaiswal eventually fell short of his second IPL hundred by just 2 runs. Needing 3 to win and him being on 94, the left-handed batter required a maximum but he only managed to play a sweep shot to collect a four. Skipper Sanju Samson also played an excellent cameo of 48 runs with the Royals beating the home side by 9 wickets and move ahead in the points table.
