MUMBAI: Pat Cummins was an unlikely star with the bat as he smashed a joint fastest 14-ball IPL fifty to power Kolkata Knight Riders to a stunning victory over Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.
The Australian Test skipper joined Venkatesh Iyer with Kolkata on 101-5 while chasing 162 and tore into the Mumbai attack with his 56 off 15 balls as the two-time champions reached their target with four overs and five wickets to spare.

Iyer, a left-hand batsman, had the best seat in the house as Cummins hit six sixes including the winning hit over the fence in a 35-run Daniel Sams over.

Cummins’ effort equalled KL Rahul‘s 50 off 14 balls for Kings XI Punjab — now Punjab Kings — in 2018 as Mumbai slipped to their third loss in as many matches.
