WATCH: Sunil Narine hits fastest IPL half-century against RCB

Posted On

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) opener Sunil Narine slammed the fastest Indian Premier League (IPL) half-century against a hapless Royal Challengers Bangalore bowling attack at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium on Sunday.

Chasing a target of 159, Narine exploded in the fourth over of the KKR innings and took his countryman Samuel Badree to the cleaners by hitting boundaries at will.

3 huge sixes and a four in the first 4 balls of Badree set the tone for Narine’s rest of the innings. In the next over, Narine again slammed four boundaries and one huge six off the bowling of Sreenath Aravind to notch up his half-century off just 15 deliveries.


Narine now joins Yusuf Pathan at the top of the pile as far as fastest fifty in the IPL history. Yusuf too slammed a half-century off 15 deliveries against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2014.
