Kiwi batsman made 50 world record. New Zealand batsman Colin Munro has made the world record by making the fastest fifty in the sixth match of the tri-series against England. Munro completed his half-century in just 18 balls. In Munro’s innings, he scored 7 sixes and three fours. However, New Zealand lost by two runs in the thrilling match, and Munro’s innings turned to water again.
Earlier, England first scored a huge target of 195 runs in front of New Zealand, in reply to New Zealand’s side, Munro (57) and Martin Guptill (62) were struggling. The last ball of the exciting match required a four off the square in which New Zealand batsmen did not succeed after the ball was on Colin de Grantham wicket.
Along with that, 30-year-old Munro became the first batsman to name three 18s or less, with three half-centuries. Before that, he had scored 14 against Sri Lanka in 2016 and 18 balls against the West Indies in 2018. Monroe is the second fastest fifty of T20 International in 14 balls. Yuvraj Singh’s name is the record of putting half-century (against England in 2007) in 12 balls. Munro was bought by Delhi Daredevils for 1.9 crores in the IPL-2011 auction.
