New Zealand cricket team's outstanding opener Colin Munro once again played the fastest innings of T20 cricket. Munro played an aggressive inning of 57 runs in 21 balls in the sixth match of the Champions Trophy against England and became the fastest turn in the history of his international T20 cricket.
Munro completed his fastest half-century in 18 balls. Munro entered the record books as he slammed his seventh T20I fifty in only 18 balls. The swashbuckling batsman also became the third batsman to score fourth fastest Twenty20 fifty equalling Australia's David Warner and Glenn Maxwell. Indian middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh leads the coveted list who scored a 12-ball fifty against England in the maiden T20I World Cup in 2007. With this feat, Munro also became the first player with three fifties in less than 20 balls in T20I cricket.

He also holds the eminence of hitting the quickest 50's in T20Is for New Zealand. He hit a 14-ball fifty against Sri Lanka in 2016, another fifty in 18-balls against West Indies in 2018 and his third, again an 18-ball half-century came on this Sunday against England.

Munro appeared unstoppable in New Zealand’s chase of 195-run goal in opposition to England within the sixth T20I at Hamilton. He used to be sooner or later disregarded on 57 off 21 balls hitting 3 fours and 7 sixes. Munro had made a blistering get started as he scored 29 runs in his first 10 deliveries.
