Hyderabad again break IPL record for highest total

MEXICO CITY: Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday broke the record for the highest Indian Premier League total for the second time this season by scoring 287-3 against Royal Challengers Bengaluru.

It was the second highest total in a men's T20, only behind Nepal's 314-3 against Mongolia last year, and the highest in a franchise tournament.

The combined total of 549 runs was the highest ever scored in a T20 match as Royal Challengers lost by 25 runs.

Hyderabad surpassed the 277-3 posted against Mumbai Indians last month as Travis Head hit 102 off 41 balls.

Hyderabad, currently fourth in the standings with eight points, will take on Delhi Capitals on Saturday. Reuters
