Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bowler Pat Cummins hit the Indian Premier League (IPL) fifty fastest on Wednesday, equaling KL Rahul’s all-time record since 2018. Cummins hit the 50-point mark with just 14 balls as he helped KKR snatch a win from the jaws of defeat. The 30-year-old was playing his first match of the current season after landing in India earlier this week after a turbulent tour of Pakistan.

Cummins joined Venkatesh Iyer at the crease when KKR looked in trouble and still needed 60 runs from the final six overs. The Aussie skipper came in and started hitting the ball from the start, making KKR 101-5 in 13.1 overs to win the game at the end of the 16th overs. Cummins finished the innings with an individual score of 56 from 15 balls as he finished the chase in style with a six on the last ball. Here’s how netizens are reacting to Cummins’ incredible feat with the bat.
