IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant smashes the fastest IPL fifty against Mumbai Indians

Posted On

Rishabh Pant smashed the fastest fifty against Mumbai Indians in IPL history when he reached the milestone off just 18 balls. He walked in to bat at number 5 for Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday and took on a strong Mumbai attack only the way he could.

Pant’s unbeaten knock of 78 came in just 27 balls and was laced with 7 sixes and seven fours as Delhi scored 213 for 6 in 20 overs.

Earlier, the record for the fastest fifty against Mumbai Indians was held by Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni. In 2012, Dhoni had scored a fifty off 20 balls against the Mumbai side.

Meanwhile, Pant’s innings against Mumbai will surely hold him in good stead for a World Cup birth. The Indian team still hasn’t sorted its middle order out and a couple of more such knocks from the Delhi lad could seal a spot for him in Virat Kohli’s team.
