Hyderabad show record-highest 125 runs in powerplay

Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma came up with devastating hits around the ground as Sunrisers Hyderabad recorded the highest 125 runs in the powerpaly in a T20 match history against Delhi Capitals in Indian Premier League (IPL) at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Saturday.

Being asked to bat, they surpassed 105-0 by Kolkata Knight Riders who held the record since 2017.
The men in orange also reached three figures in the quickest time in the history of the format, in five overs — beating South Africa who achieved it in 5.3 overs against West Indies last year.

Australia’s Head did the most damage with 80 runs after bringing up his fifty off 16 balls at the end of third over, while Abhishek contributed with 40 runs off 10 balls.

The duo struck 11 sixes and 13 fours in the Powerplay, where the field restrictions are maximum.
