SRH vs MI: Travis Head smashed an 18-ball half-century for Sunrisers Hyderabad


Mumbai Indians won the toss and decided to bowl first. During the SRH vs MI match in IPL 2024 in Hyderabad, Sunrisers Hyderabad broke multiple records while scoring the highest run in an IPL inning. They scored 277 runs against Mumbai Indians to break the most runs in an IPL inning record. They surpassed RCB's record of 263 created against Pune Warriors India in 2013.

Travis Head struck one of the fastest half-centuries this season. He played a 24-ball 62-run inning to set up the platform for the upcoming batters. Youngster Abhishek Sharma scored his fifty in just 16 balls to surpass Travis Head's record of 18 balls. Sharma hit 7 sixes and 3 fours and went back to the dugout, scoring 63 runs in just 23 deliveries.

Heinrich Klassen and Aiden Markaram then took the responsibility and added 116 runs for the fourth wicket. Both the South African batters tore apart the Mumbai Indians bowling unit. Klassen completed his fifty in just 23 balls and then remained unbeaten on 80 from 34 balls with 7 huge sixes. Meanwhile, Markaram played more of an anchor role with his 42 from 28 balls as Sunrisers Hyderabad put 277 runs on the scoreboard.

For MI, debutant Kwena Maphaka went for 66 in his four overs while Hardik Pandya, the new skipper conceded 46 runs in his four overs. Gerald Coetzee who bowled superbly on his debut gave away 57 runs in his four overs against SRH. Sunrisers crossed the 250 mark in the 19th over and only if it was not for Jasprit Bumrah's 36 runs in four overs, SRH could have gotten past the 300-run mark as well.

Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma provided Mumbai Indians with a sensational start, scoring 50+ runs in the first three overs. Ishan looked sharp in this game and hit 4 sixes to help Mumbai get a perfect start to their record chase. He scored 34 runs in 13 deliveries before Shahbaz Ahmed dismissed him. Former skipper Rohit Sharma started brilliantly but couldn't extend his inning and got out on 26 after facing only 12 deliveries. The SRH skipper, Pat Cummins picked up Rohit's wicket, providing his side with the second breakthrough inside the powerplay.

Naman Dhir and Tilak Varma then constructed a partnership and continued to rip apart the SRH bowlers. Both batters helped the side put up 150+ on the scoreboard inside the first 10 overs. Naman Dhir did the same as he did against GT. He struck 2 sixes and 2 boundaries to score 30 runs off just 14 deliveries. On the other side, Tilak Varma played a sensational knock of 64 off just 34 deliveries, hitting 6 sixes in his inning. But, it was Pat Cummins who struck again and sent Tilak to the dugout to take the driving seat of the match.

Hardik Pandya once again disappointed the fans with his performance, scoring only 24 runs after facing 20 deliveries which is a lot in this type of run chase. But, Tim David and Romario Shepherd fought till the end but couldn't take the team to victory. David struck 42 runs in just 22 deliveries, hitting 3 huge sixes and 2 fours while Shepherd played an unbeaten cameo of 16 runs off just 6 deliveries. Mumbai fell short by 31 runs and Hyderabad registered their first victory of the season.

The pitch completely helped the batters but Pat Cummins showed why he is one of the best captains in the World Cricket right now. He rotated his bowlers perfectly and clinched the victory. Bhuvneshwar Kumar once again went expensive as he conceded 53 runs in his 4-over spell. Unadkat was also expensive but took 2 important wickets in the right moments.



Mayank Markande and Shahbaz Ahmed also couldn't add much to the bowling unit as the Mumbai batters tore them apart but it was Pat Cummins' captaincy that took the game away from Hardik's hands. The World Cup winner conceded only 35 runs in his 4-over spell and picked up the wickets of Rohit and Tilak. When the bowlers were going expensive, he rotated them brilliantly and won the 2 points at home.
