Australia stalwart Pat Cummins is usually known for his bowling prowess but there are numerous instances to recount when he played decent batting innings for his national team. In 2022, he hit the headlines for his unprecedented knock for KKR against MI at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium. 

Following a decent target of 162, Knight Riders were five down at a score of 101 in 13.1 overs. Cummins, who went to bat at number seven, flexed his muscles against Tymal Mills, Jasprit Bumrah, and Daniel Sams. In his compatriot Sams’ over, Cummins smashed 35 runs and ended the game comfortably in his team’s favour. 

With KKR registering an extraordinary five-wicket triumph, Cummins became the Player of the Match for his all-round performance (unbeaten 56 off 15 and 2/49 in four overs). The Aussie hit his fifty in just 14 deliveries and equalled KL Rahul’s record for the fastest IPL half-century which came against Delhi Capitals in 2018. In 2023, Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Yashasvi Jaiswal shattered the record of both players with his 13-ball fifty against KKR at Eden Gardens.
