Vivrant, who played a fine stroke of 69 points, surpassed Asnodkar’s mark of 60 playing against the mighty Mumbai (MI) Indians at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, who scored 58* in his opening innings in 2008, is third on the list followed by Devdutt Padikkal who scored 56 points in the 2020 edition in Dubai.
The 23-year-old showed an amazing display of skill, determination and composure. With a masterful blend of elegant strokes and powerful strokes, the debutant Vivrant achieved a splendid half-century. His fine stroke of 69 came off 47 balls and included 9 exquisite boundaries and 2 big sixes.
The crowd was stunned as Vivrant’s mace produced a symphony of borders and towering sixes. This stunning achievement marks the beginning of what promises to be a glorious career for the young cricket prodigy.
Vivrant, who was doing great, eventually fell victim to MI pacer Akash Madwal. Vivrant put up a fine opening stand of 140 runs off Mayank Agarwal off only 83 balls.
Vivrant fell victim to a well executed drop ball from Madhwal. The delivery proved too much for him to handle as he attempted a shot-and-shoot but found himself in an unfavorable position. The result was a lead, sending the ball skyward. Nehal Wadhera positioned mid wicket deep he took an easy catch to end Vivrant’s innings.
