2017 IPL Season 10 - Sunil Narine(KKR) Scored Half Century in 15 Balls Against RCB @ Bengaluru,Equals The Fastest Half Century Scored in IPL in 15 Balls by Yusuf Pathan Sunday May 07,2017

Kolkata Knight Riders opener Sunil Narine joined teammate Yusuf Pathan on the fastest Indian Premier League half-century record list on Sunday May 07,2017

Sunil  Narine reached the half century mark off 15 deliveries against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. His knock was dotted with six fours and four sixes. 

Yusuf Pathan's knock had come in 2014, also off 15 deliveries, against Sunrisers Hyderabad

On Sunday, Narine and Lynn made a mockery of the Bangalore bowlers as they took them to the cleaners.
 Sunil Narinealso broke the record of Chris Lynn(KKR) who scored 50 in 19 balls against Gujarat Lions this season.

Sunil Narine was finally caught by Kedar Jadhav off an Aniket Choudhury delivery and he departed for 54
"I haven't seen such a partnership. Unbelievable effort. You don't expect people to get 105 in 6 overs... It was a team decision to send Narine up the order because he would hardly bat at No. 6 or No. 7. We also though it would make it easy on Lynn to take his time at the other end on his return," said Gautam Gambhir after the match. 

Narine himself was surprised with his knock. "I'm surprised too. Lynn just said keep your eyes on the ball... I try to keep it simple. I'll hopefully get used to the expectations but it really was a team effort," he said.
