Aussies day out! After Travis Head fireworks, Jake Fraser-McGurk smashes fastest 50 of IPL 2024

This is just the third IPL match Fraser-McGurk is playing, having scored 75 runs in his past two innings.

It’s good to be an Aussie today (April 20), unless you are a bowler. In a match where 22 sixes were hit in the first inning of the DC vs SRH match, Out of all the big hitters in the match, it was Jake Fraser-McGurk who smashed the most sixes (7), as he made the fastest 50 of the IPL 2024 season.

Fascinatingly, it was another Australian whose record he broke. Travis Head had scored a 16-ball fifty earlier in the match. But, for Fraser-McGurk, it was a challenge that he accepted. Chasing 267, the 22-year-old entered after David Warner was dismissed. 

Fastest 50s in IPL 2024

He then hit 12 boundaries (5 fours and 7 sixes) and reached the half-century in just 15 balls. His 15-ball fifty is the fastest fifty by a Delhi Capitals player in the history of the IPL and the 3rd fastest IPL fifty of all time.
