Ayush Badoni, 22, made an immediate impact in his Indian Premier League debut against Gujarat Titans at Wankhede Stadium with a magnificent half-century. Badoni stepped out to bat at number 6 for the Lucknow Super Giants when things were not going well for his team. Lucknow lost four wickets for just 29 runs, and Badoni teamed up with Deepak Hooda to rescue his team from a dire scenario.
To assist his team reach 158/6 in 20 overs, the young batter hammered 54 runs off 41 balls, including three sixes and four fours. Varun Aaron, who was looking for another maximum to add to his total, bowled him in the penultimate over of the innings.

He was removed by Varun Aaron in the penultimate over of the innings as he attempted to add to his team’s score with another maximum. Badoni stated he wasn’t thinking about his half-century on his debut after playing a sensible knock.
Badoni stated he wasn’t thinking about his half-century when he made his debut and only discovered it after attaining the milestone. “I wasn’t thinking about my fifty because I wasn’t looking at the score. I simply wanted to play my own game. I didn’t understand I got a fifty until I got there,” Badoni told reporters.
The young hitter went on to say that he was worried going into the contest, but that the first boundary gave him confidence.
“Last night, I couldn’t sleep because I was so nervous. I gained confidence after crossing the first boundary. The ball was originally cutting, but after six overs, it became flat. I believe we have a respectable total on the board,” he says.
