Ishan Kishan registered the joint second-fastest half-century of Vivo IPL 2018 for Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 41 of the tournament. Kishan came to bat in the 9th over after the dismissal of Suryakumar Yadav. He completed his second half-century of the season, in just 17 balls, in the 14th over of the innings. Kishan smashed Kuldeep Yadav for 4 consecutive sixes to bring up his 50.

Rohit Sharma was the focus of the night at his favourite ground, but Kishan stole the show away from him, smashing 62 off 21 with 5 fours and 6 sixes. Sunil Narine eventually got rid of him in the 15th over, but the damage was already done. Kishan also recorded the joint-fastest 50 in MI history, along with Kieron Pollard. Kishan and Pollard also share the record the fastest IPL fifty against Kolkata Knight Riders, while the record for the fastest IPL fifty at Eden Gardens still rests with Yusuf Pathan (15 balls).
