Marcus Stoinis made a record by hitting a half-century in 17 balls

Marcus Stoinis played a brilliant inning as soon as he came to the crease and scored a half-century in just 17 balls and with this he became the fastest batsman to score a T20 International half-century for Australia. He broke the record of David Warner and Glenn Maxwell in this matter. In 2010, Warner scored a half-century in 18 balls against the West Indies. Whereas Glenn Maxwell scored a half-century in just 18 balls against Pakistan in Mirpur in 2014. Apart from this, Maxwell scored a half-century against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 18 balls. However, Marcus Stoinis has now overtaken them.

If we talk about the fastest half-century in the T20 World Cup, then this record is in the name of Yuvraj Singh. In the first T20 World Cup played in 2007, he made a half-century in just 12 balls. This was the same match in which he had hit six sixes in an over.
