SRH shatter more batting records in yet another barrage of sixes

SRH Dominate Powerplay Once Again

SRH’s incredible total of 107/0 in the Powerplay is now the second-highest ever recorded in all T20 cricket, narrowly trailing their own record-setting 125/0 against DC earlier in the season. Notably, SRH becomes the first team to breach the 100-run mark in the Powerplay on two separate occasions.

Record-Breaking Disparity

The staggering difference of 80 runs between the Powerplay totals of the two teams – LSG’s 27/2 compared to SRH’s 107/0 – sets a new IPL record, surpassing the previous mark of 69 runs in a match between GT and RCB. LSG’s 27/2 represents their lowest-ever total in the batting Powerplay, while SRH’s 107/0 is the highest conceded by any team in the bowling Powerplay.

Travis Head’s Powerplay Prowess

Travis Head’s exceptional form within the Powerplay continues to rewrite the record books. With four 50+ scores in IPL 2024, he now holds the record for the most such scores in a single edition, second only to David Warner’s six overall. Head’s remarkable performances include knocks of 59 against MI, 52 against RCB, and 84 against DC earlier in the season.

Dynamic Duo Strikes Again

The partnership of Head and Abhishek Sharma continues to set new standards in IPL history. Head’s three fifties scored in fewer than 20 balls in IPL 2024 matches the record set by Jake Fraser-McGurk. Their 100-run partnership, achieved in just 34 balls, stands as the second fastest in IPL history, behind only their own 30-ball effort against DC. This partnership also boasts the second-highest run rate for a 100+ stand in IPL history.

Setting New Records

SRH’s blistering pace sees them achieving new milestones. Their total of 167/0 in 9.4 overs marks the highest ever halfway score in an uninterrupted IPL innings, surpassing their own record set earlier in the season. Additionally, their chase of 100+ targets with 62 balls to spare sets a new IPL record for the most balls remaining, and stands as the earliest a team has chased down a 150+ target in all T20s.

Surpassing Previous Records

IPL 2024 continues to see record-breaking sixes, with over 1000 already hit, following the trend set in 2022 and 2023. SRH leads the charge with 146 sixes in the tournament, surpassing CSK’s previous record of 145 in 2018. Abhishek Sharma leads the team with 35 maximums, closely followed by Travis Head and Heinrich Klaasen with 31 each, with Sunil Narine adding 32 to the tally.
