Meghalaya's Abhay Negi slams fastest fifty in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy

Meghalaya's Abhay Negi slams fastest fifty in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy

Mumbai, Nov 17 (UNI) Meghalaya all-rounder Abhay Negi slammed the fastest fifty in the history of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Mizoram on Sunday.

Abhay scored a 14-ball half-century and broke the record of Robin Uthappa in India’s domestic T20 tournament.

With this fifty, Abhay Negi also equalled KL Rahul's record of fastest fifty in T20 cricket in India. Rahul had hit fastest fifty in IPL history in the match against Delhi Capitals in Mohali in 2018.

Rahul had taken 14 balls to smash fifty runs in a knock which included four sixes and six boundaries as Kings XI Punjab chased down the target of 167 with 6 wickets in hand to open their campaign with a resounding win.

Abhay was unbeaten on 50 runs in just 15 deliveries, with his knock studded with two fours and six sixes. Abhay’s knock helped Meghalaya post a mammoth total of 207 for 4 wickets in 20 overs with Ravi Teja scoring 53 not out.

Born in Uttarakhand, the 27-year-old has played for Meghalaya and Tripura. He made his first-class debut against Shillong in November last year and his T20 debut versus Bengal in Ranchi in January 2018.

Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh holds the record for fastest T20 half-century for any Indian. Yuvraj had set the record in 2007 during the T20 World Cup against England in Durban. His innings included six sixes in an over off pacer Stuart Broad.
