The IPL has lots of records for T20 half-centuries. Here will look over the latest records available.

The record has only been broken on three occasions after the first IPL tournament on 2009. It has been matched a few times at 17 balls and this seemed to be as high as it would go at first. Could we ever see a 13 ball IPL 50? We certainly hope so!
Did you know? David Warner was the first captain to hit a 50 in IPL 2015. He was named captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the start of the 2015 series and wasted no time getting a half-century on the board in the first match of the tournament. He finished the tournament as the top batsman with the Orange Cap hitting 7 half-centuries from 14 innings. You can see the scorecard for the match here.
