Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) continue to break records for fun in the 2024 edition of the IPL as they have surpassed their feat of smashing the highest total of tournament history 17 days later at M Chinnaswamy Stadium against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) on Monday, April 15. Sunrisers scored a total of 287 runs in their innings, which is the highest-ever in IPL and second highest in T20 history just behind Nepal's 314 in the Asian Games in Hangzhou last year against Mongolia.

Travis Head was the star of the show for the Sunrisers as he smashed his maiden T20 century, off just 39 balls, which is the fourth fastest in IPL history after Chris Gayle (30), Yusuf Pathan (37) and David Miller (38). Head just kept going after the RCB bowlers as if it was his last day of playing cricket. The pitch was a belter and he, followed by Heinrich Klaasen just didn't stop. Sunrisers smashed the highest number of sixes by a team in an innings (22) in the IPL and Abdul Samad with 37* off 10 provided the finishing touches. The less said about the bowling figures for RCB, the better.
