|L Rahul created a new record of scoring the fastest half-century in the Indian Premier League and guess who he credited after the match? None other than 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle.
Rahul's 14-ball fifty saw Kings XI Punjab open their IPL 2018 campaign with a resounding win against Delhi Daredevils in Mohali on Sunday. And it came as no surprise that Rahul took inspiration from the big-hitting West Indies, who was left out of the playing XI.
"I have realized over the years playing with you (while being part of the RCB squad),and I have spoken to you over the last couple of years about how to pace the innings and you always keep telling about getting into good positions and then http://www.authenticsandiegopadresshop.com/Chase-Headley-Jersey body reacts. That's http://www.ramsfootballofficialproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_TYRUNN_WALKER_JERSEY.html all I was trying to do and I'm really happy that it came off today," Rahul added.
Chasing 167, KXIP owed their sensational start to Rahul, who hammered six fours and four sixes. He eventually perished for a 16-ball 51 but KXIP were so far ahead in the game that even after slowing down in the middle overs the team was matching up with the required run rate. They eventually reached the target with 7 balls to spare.
Rahul is no stranger to records in the shorter formats. He had scored a hundred on ODI debut against Zimbabwe in 2016. A few months later, he Authentic Rodger Saffold Jersey became one of Logan Couture Womens Jersey only three Indian batsmen to score a T20 International hundreds.

But on Sunday he did not even realise that he had scored the fastest fifty and only got to know about the record when Yuvraj Singh reminded him about it after joining him in the middle during the run chase.
"It is great to have records under your belt. Yes, I didn't really realize that I had got a record, I had got to fifty because, like I said, I was just waiting for the ball to leave the bowler's hand and strike it. So once I got there and everyone started clapping I realized I got Authentic Ryan Murray Jersey to fifty," the 25-year-old explained his delayed reaction and acknowledgement on reaching his half-century.
Gayle himself was mighty pleased with what he saw from the dugout and congratulated the Karnataka opener on the record.
"Fastest fifty, you seemed a bit surprised when you saw everyone was clapping, like you didn't realise that you actually reached fifty, but you hit the fastest fifty in the IPL history. That's a great record and zI think you will have many more to score in this format," the 38-year-old Jamaican said.
Left out of India's ODI and T20I squads for the South Africa tour, Rahul was itching to make a statement. He could not assert himself in Sri Lanka during the Nidahas Trophy but he was determined to do exactly that in the IPL. wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys
