The 21-year-old, whose rising to the most elevated levels of Indian cricket following a long time of titanic fight at the Mumbai maidaans has been real, left another super durable stamp of his situation with an essential achievement on Thursday. He was on by and large free for all for Rajasthan Royals against Kolkata Knight Riders in an IPL 2023 match in Kolkata and pounded the speediest ever 50 years all through the whole presence of the boss T20 contention.

The 21-year-old opener showed up at the 50-run mark in just 13 balls to break the record commonly held by KL Rahul and Pat Cummins. Both had scored half-many years in 14 balls. With RR seeking after a 150-run center against KKR, Jaiswal went hammer and utensils from the word go as he took the attack to the opposition. In the first over by KKR boss Nitish Rana, Jaiswal struck 26 runs (second commonly number of runs scored in the first over of an IPL innings) with the help of three fours and two sixes. He took a twofold on the fifth ball.

In the second gotten done with, despite RR losing the wicket of Jos Buttler, Jaiswal hit a four and a six. He didn't have to remain by extensive to show up at the 50 years mark. In the third over by Shardul Thakur, Jaiswal again hit three extra fours going before completing his 50 years in just 13 balls, with a lone on the fifth lump of the over.

"I'm respected and thankful, I'm putting forth a legitimate attempt. (On whether he accepts he missed 100 years) I think the net run rate was the primary thing to us, me and Sanju were simply checking out at finishing the game quickly."
