SRH vs MI: Abhishek Sharma’s record-setting fifty gets standing ovation from Kavya Maran | See pics

Sunrisers Hyderabad sent numerous records tumbling on Wednesday during a face-off against Mumbai Indians. The Kavya Maran-owned team smashed 277 for three — the highest total in IPL history — with both Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma setting successive ‘fastest fifty’ records. The internet was also left riveted by CEO Maran’s delight while watching the match unfold.

Travis Head (62 off 24) and Abhishek Sharma (63 off 23) came up with a sensational display of power-hitting, that saw the latter snatching the franchise record for fastest fifty from the Australian within minutes.

Heinrich Klaasen (80 not out off 34 balls) provided the fireworks in the end to help SRH break an 11-year-old record. The previous highest total in IPL was 263 for five achieved by Royal Challengers Bangalore back in 2013.
