Kolkata: Having watched with awe Yusuf Pathan's fireworks that enabled his side finish second in the round robin stage of the Indian Premier League, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir on Saturday admitted he had not see such an innings before.

Pathan (72 of 22 balls) plundered seven massive sixes and five fours as he slammed the fastest IPL fifty to propel the Knight Riders to a four-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad with 34 balls to spare.

Replying to the visitors 160/7, the hosts needed to overhaul the total within 15.2 overs, but thanks to Pathan's blazing knock, they reached 161/6 in only 14.2 overs at the Eden Gardens.
