IPL 2022: Pat Cummins smashes joint-fastest half-century in league history; reaches fifty in merely 14 deliveries


Kolkata Knight Riders’ Pat Cummins equaled the record for the fastest half-century in the Indian Premier League history, slamming fifty off just 14 deliveries during the game against Mumbai Indians. Cummins equaled KL Rahul’s record from 2018 when the Indian batter had reached the feat against the Delhi Capitals.

Cummins’ incredible knock took Kolkata Knight Riders to a five-wicket victory, as the side chased down a 162-run target with four overs remaining. The Australian ended with an unbeaten score of 56 off just 15 deliveries, hitting four fours and six sixes. 

Interestingly, Cummins is making his maiden appearance in the current edition of the league, having missed the side’s opening three games due to international commitments. He came out of quarantine earlier this week, as he returned from Pakistan following the three-match Test series.

With the ball, Cummins took two wickets, conceding 49 runs in four overs.

Here’s the list of fastest half-centuries in IPL:

  • KL Rahul (against DC, 2018) – 14 balls
  • Pat Cummins (against MI, 2022) – 14 balls
  • Yusuf Pathan (against SRH, 2014) – 15 balls
  • Sunil Narine (against RCB, 2017) – 15 balls
