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.
