The 16th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season witnessed the emergence of a youngster who mesmerised the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) fans and cricket fans in general with attacking strokeplay and became the youngest player to register a fifty-plus score in their maiden IPL innings.

Angkrish is one of the 23 players in the history of the tournament who have registered a fifty-plus score in their maiden IPL innings. The 18-year and 304-day-old player is the seventh youngest overall to register a fifty in the tournament.

The right-handed batter looked in sublime touch during the course of his 54-run knock. He annihilated Delhi Capitals' bowling attack alongside Sunil Narine and aggregated his runs at a lightning strike rate of 200.

He exhibited his boundary-hitting prowess to the fullest and struck five fours and three maximums. His knock helped Sunil Narine (85 off 39 balls) to carry on at his pace without worrying too much about the run rate.
