Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has once again etched their name in history, surpassing their own record for the highest team total in the IPL's 17-year history. In a breathtaking display of batting prowess against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, SRH amassed a staggering 287/3 in 20 overs, setting a new benchmark in T20 franchise cricket.

Travis Head led the charge for SRH with a scintillating century, reaching his milestone in just 39 deliveries, making it the fourth fastest century in IPL history. Head's onslaught, coupled with a stellar performance by opener Abhishek Sharma, propelled SRH to their monumental total, leaving the RCB bowlers reeling.
