XtraTime Web Desk: For the first time Indian Premier League saw the class of Indian U19 sensation Prithvi Shaw on Friday after he played knock of 62 runs from just 44 deliveries to help his side Delhi Daredevils register a comfortable 55-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi last night.

Prithvi at the age of 18 years and 169 days scored his maiden half century in IPL during his second game and not only that with the half century coincidentally he also becomes joint-youngest cricketer to score a fifty in IPL. Prithvi equals the record with another Indian, Sanju Samson. Sanju who is currently playing for Rajasthan Royals, scored 63 from just 41 deliveries against Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore during a league game in 2013 IPL. He also was 18 years and 169 days of age at that time.

Rishab Pant, who is also the teammate of Prithvi Shaw in Delhi Daredevils is second in the list as his first IPL fifty came at the age of 18 years and 212 days last year.

The cricket fanatics know that breaking records is nothing new for breaking the records. In the last U19 World Cup he matched record of the title win with Mohammad Kaif (2002), Virat Kohli (2008) and Unmukt Chand (2012). Not only that, he also scored 261 runs in the tournament with five fifties.
