Here is the list of players with fastest fifties in IPL history

  • Nicholas Pooran slammed fastest fifty of IPL 2020 against SRH on Thursday.

  • The record of fastest fifty in the history of IPL is currently with KL Rahul.

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) top-order batsman Nicholas Pooran starred with the bat during an IPL clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday (October 08).

The West Indies power-hitter raced to his fifty off just 17 balls, and it was the fastest in IPL 2020. His exhibition of hitting was breathtaking, and it was highlighted in one over bowled by Abdul Samad in which Pooran smashed four massive sixes and scored 28 runs in total. However, Pooran’s knock went in vain as KXIP lost the game by 69 runs.

Pooran joins Gayle and Gilchrist in the elite list

Meanwhile, Pooran has entered an elite club of players who have scored the fastest fifty in IPL history. Pooran’s knock put him level with Chris Gayle, Hardik Pandya, Adam Gilchrist, Ishan Kishan, Sunil Narine and Chris Morris for scoring a fifty off just 17 balls.

The record of fastest fifty in the history of IPL is with KL Rahul. The current KXIP skipper blasted a half-century off just 14 balls against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 2018 edition of the IPL. Rahul hit a total of four sixes and six boundaries to get to 51.

Hard-hitting batsman Yusuf Pathan is at the second spot as he scored a quick-fire fifty off just 15 balls against SRH in IPL 2014.
