In today IPL match, Delhi Daredevils meets Kings XI Punjab at Chandigarh. Gambhir might be 36 years of age, but his footwork against spin was pristine and if he would have got a little bit of support from the other hand then the story would have been different.

After the match Agarwal heaped praise on Rahul and said his knock eased up the chase for Kings XI Punjab.

"When Yuvi (Yuvraj Singh) came to bat, he told me, 'I was anxious for a bit that you were going to break my 11-ball fifty record!' [Yuvraj had hit a half-century off 12 balls against England in the World T20 2007, which is the global record]" Rahul was quoted as saying by Wisden India. Rahul's (51 off 16b; 6x4, 4x6) assault on Mishra included three boundaries and two sixes.

Gambhir hit Axar Patel for 22 runs off 9 deliveries.

Rahul took just 14 balls to score his fifty and beat the previous record by one ball.

Later on in the same year, Rahul became the fastest batsman to score hundreds in all three global formats when he scored 110 runs against the West Indies.

Later, incoming batsman, Shreyas Iyer (11) and Vijay Shankar (13) failed to do too much with the bat and were dismissed by Axar Patel and Mohit Sharma respectively in quick succession.
