Yashaswi Jaiswal, the left-handed batsman from Rajasthan Royals holds the record for scoring the fastest fifty in the history of Indian Premier League History. He managed to score his record half-century in just 13 balls with the help of 7 fours and 3 sixes. The southpaw scored his fastest fifty in the IPL 2023 game.
Current Lucknow SuperGiants skipper KL Rahul holds the record for scoring the 2nd fastest half-century in IPL history.
Rahul achieved the feat while playing for the Punjab Kings against Delhi Capitals during the 2018 season. The stylish opener hammered 6 fours and 4 sixes to bring up his half-century in a mere 14 deliveries. He eventually made 51 off 16 deliveries.
4 years later, KKR seamer Pat Cummins joined Rahul as he smashed a whirlwind 14-ball half-century against the Mumbai Indians.
At the 3rd spot is former Indian basher Yusuf Pathan, who knocked off a 15-ball fifty against SRH during a 2014 fixture. Pathan smashed 5 fours and 7 monstrous sixes to finish with 72 (off 22 deliveries), handing his side a four-wicket win.
Another KKR stalwart in the form of Sunil Narine has smashed a 15-ball fifty in the IPL. Narine did that against RCB during the 2017 edition.
Suresh Raina and Ishan Kishan are next on the list with 16-ball half-centuries. Raina achieved it during his majestic 25-ball 87 against the Punjab Kings in Qualifier 02 of the 2014 season.
Kishan, on the other hand, joined the party during the 2021 season when he smoked a 32-ball 84 against the SunRisers Hyderabad.
