Fastest 50 of IPL: The Australian Test captain raced his way to a third T20 half-century in a winning cause tonight.

During the 14th match of the ongoing 15th season of the Indian Premier League between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians in Pune, Kolkata Knight Riders beat Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets to reach the top of the points table with three victories under their belt.

Chasing a 162-run target on a trickier surface, Kolkata were reduced to 101/5 needing 61 runs to win 41 deliveries. Still the favourites primarily due to their all-rounders, no one would’ve thought of them sealing the chase within the next 17 balls.

Playing his first match of the season, Australia Test captain Pat Cummins not just scored but thumped the opposition with his third T20 half-century. Batting ahead of Sunil Narine at No. 7, Cummins hit four fours and six sixes to score 56* (15) at an unbelievable strike rate of 373.33.

Facing fast bowler Tymal Mills, Cummins hit the second and third deliveries he faced for a six and four respectively to get going. In the following over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah, Cummins hit another six and four to bring down the equation to KKR needing 35 runs off 30 balls.

Cummins then assaulted a fellow Australian in Daniel Sams to hit the remaining 35 runs in the 16th over. Cummins, who had scored a couple of half-centuries for Knight Riders in the past, equaled Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul’s record of fastest IPL half-century.

A hard-hitting innings, among the best played in the history of the IPL, Cummins allured astonishing reactions from one and all including former India batter Virender Sehwag. Taking to his social media platform Twitter handle, Sehwag hilariously tweeted about how Cummins snatched a victory from the opposition’s jaws.
