Indian cricket is famously known for its batting as many Indian batsmen have registered many records in international cricket history. There are some Indian batsmen who are famous to regularly perform fast batting, especially in the limited-overs cricket.
While we have seen many fastest ODI fifties, which mostly happened in less than 25 balls, some Indian batsmen are also in this list.
Here we are talking about the top five fastest ODI fifties by the Indian batsmen.
Yuvraj Singh – 22 balls (against Bangladesh in 2004)
The former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was a stylish left-handed batsman who played many pivotal roles with the bat for his national team during his best period. Here we are talking about Yuvraj’s fastest ODI fifty which was against Bangladesh at Dhaka on 27th December 2004.
In this series-decider game, the visitors batted first and got good starts. While the top-orders played successful knocks, Yuvraj finished that very well. Coming to bat at no.6 in the 42nd over of that first innings, Yuvraj completed his half-century in just 22 balls and scored 69 runs off 32 balls (8 fours and 3 sixes).
India won that match by 91 runs and clinched that three-match ODI series by the 2-1 margin. In this ODI, while they scored 348/5 (50 overs), the hosts were restricted to 257/9 (50 overs).
