After losing the toss to Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad on March 27 scored the highest total in Indian Premier League (IPL) history, as they slammed 277 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. 

They also became the first team to score 150 runs in 10 overs in IPL. This all happened due to the explosive start by Travis Head (63) and Abhishek Sharma (63), followed by the Proteas duo Heinrich Klassen (80*) and Aiden Markram (41*)'s brilliant partnership.

Head completed his half-century in 18 balls, while Abhishek Sharma hit his half-century in 16 deliveries. Also, Klassen scored his half-century in just 23 deliveries.
