Shivam Dube, in particular, was fantastic and scored 50 off just 21 balls. He hit two fours and five sixes in his breathtaking inning.

Shivam Dube has scored the joint-third quickest fifty for CSK in IPL history. The southpaw took just 20 balls to get to his half-century and dismantled the KKR bowlers with some terrific hitting.

With his 50, Dube also equalled the CSK captain MS Dhoni, who scored a 20-ball fifty against Mumbai Indians in 2012.

Ajinkya Rahane, who remained unbeaten on 71 runs off just 29 balls n Sunday, also scored a 19-ball fifty earlier this season against Mumbai Indians.

Former India player Suresh Raina holds the record for scoring the quickest half-century for CSK. He scored a 14-ball fifty against Punjab Kings in the IPL 2014.
