Cricket - List Of Fastest Fifty in ODI

One Day Internationals
A One Day International (ODI) is a form of limited overs cricket, played between two teams with international status, in which each team faces a fixed number of overs, and now a days it is fifty over per side, earlier it used to be 60 overs per side.

The international one-day game is a late twentieth-century development. The first ODI was played on 5 January 1971 between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. When the first three days of the third Test were washed out officials decided to abandon the match and, instead, play a one-off one day game consisting of 40 eight-ball overs per side. Australia won the game by 5 wickets.

That's the small history of how the one day international game evolved. From then, the game has improved vastly along with the aggression of the batsman to score run against the bowler.

Here are listed the five fastest half centurions(50 runs) in one day internationals

Sanath Jayasurya : He scored the fastest ever fifty in a ODI and he took just 17 balls to get to this. He achieved this milestone against Pakistan in Singapore during the year 1996.

Mark Boucher : Wicket keeper batsman from South Africa, bats lower down the order either at 5th down or 6th down, but an aggressive and calculated shot selector. He has scored this against Kenya, taking 19 balls to score half century. He is the only batsman to have achieved this glory in his home condition (Cape Town) during the season of 2001.
