    Yashasvi Jaiswal, the Rajasthan Royals opener, achieved the fastest fifty in an Indian Premier League match. He completed his half-century in just 13 balls against Kolkata Knight Rides at the Eden Gardens on Thursday. Jaiswal had already scored his maiden IPL hundred earlier in the tournament. He hit opposition skipper Nitish Rana for two sixes and three fours from the first over itself. Although his opening partner Jos Buttler was run out in the second over, Jaiswal continued his onslaught by hitting Harshit Rana and Shardul Thakur for five more fours to bring up his half-century in just 13 balls.

    Jaiswal bettered the records of KL Rahul and Pat Cummins who completed their fifties in 14 balls. Jaiswal blazed away to an unbeaten 47-ball 98 as Rajasthan Royals defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets. Kolkata Knight Riders scored 149 for eight after being asked to bat first. Venkatesh Iyer top-scored for KKR with 57 off 42 balls after openers Jason Roy (10) and Rahmanullah Gurbaz (18) could not convert their starts at the Eden Gardens, both falling to seasoned left-arm pacer Trent Boult.
