WATCH : Umpire pouring salt on RCB’s wounds enroute to SRH’s record total of 287


Sunrisers Hyderabad executed a well-thought-out strategy at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, aiming to dismantle the Royal Challengers Bengaluru bowling attack, and their efforts yielded significant rewards.

Travis Head kickstarted the onslaught with a rapid 39-ball century, followed by Heinrich Klaasen’s explosive innings of 69 runs from just 31 deliveries, bringing the visitors close to breaching the 277-run mark, a record previously held by SRH against Mumbai Indians earlier in the season.

However, RCB had other plans, swiftly dismissing both set batsmen within three deliveries, only to be thwarted by the umpires’ decision.

After Klaasen’s dismissal, Aiden Markram miscued a Yash Dayal full-toss in the 18th over, resulting in a diving catch by Reece Topley at short third-man. The team gathered for celebrations, but their joy was short-lived as a loud siren interrupted, signaling a no-ball.

Markram remained unbeaten on 32 off 17 deliveries, and Abdul Samad’s breathtaking 10-ball 37 helped SRH comfortably surpass their previous score, posting 287/3 on the scoreboard.

The innings witnessed a total of 22 sixes and 19 boundaries, with no bowler managing to maintain an economy rate below 10, causing a buzz of excitement among cricket fans on Twitter.
