Twitter erupts as KL Rahul slams fastest half-century in IPL history

KL Rahul smashed the fastest fifty in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday.

Opening the batting for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) against Delhi Daredevils, Rahul began his assault right from ball one. In the very first over of the second innings, Rahul whacked Trent Boult for a huge six and from thereon he looked in imperious form as boundaries and sixes flowed from his willow.

After taking 16 runs of Boult’s first over, Rahul milked Mohammed Shami for 12 runs. However, his assault on Amit Mishra was brutal as the leg-spinner was taken apart for 24 runs in one over.

In his brutal 51 runs knock which came off just 16 balls, Rahul slammed six fours and four sixes. Incidentally, three of those fours and two sixes came in Mishra’s over. He was finally dismissed for 51 by Chris Morris.
