Last Updated: May 12, 2023 at 12:02 PM

The 56th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 took place between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. It is fair to say that the game was all about young Yashasvi Jaiswal as he batted exceptionally well and won the game for his side.

According to Yashasvi Jaiswal’s innings, the target of 150 was made to look like just 50. He went full force in the first over scoring 26 runs to take his side off the fliers.

If this was not enough he went on to score the fastest fifty in the history of the league. Yashasvi Jaiswal achieved this feat in just 13 balls. He was well supported by skipper Sanju Samson, who kept striking him to keep the momentum going.

The way Yashasvi Jaiswal batted, a century was on the cards for him. But due to the low target, he could not reach his ton. But RR skipper Sanju Samsam made every effort to see the young batsman reach his hundred.

With just 3 runs needed, it looked like KKR spinner Suyash Sharma deliberately lofted the ball down the ground. But Sanju Samson somehow managed to defend by putting the bat on him. He then indicated to Jaiswal to hit the first ball of the next over for a six. The youngster though could not manage the maximum but ended the game with a boundary.
