Match 30 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) witnessed the SunRisers Hyderabad visit bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on April 15.

High-flying SunRisers posted yet another mammoth total for their opponents courtesy of a spectacular batting display by Aussie batter Travis Head on the night.

Travis Head Scores 4th Fastest IPL Century

Put to bat first, SRH openers Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head went in and chose to attack from the very start. While Abhishek Sharma had to depart with a 22-ball 34, it was Travis Head who left the RCB bowlers gasping for air.

Head’s love for batting on Indian soil is pretty evident as the Aussie went on to score the 4th fastest IPL hundred on the night, completing it in just 39 deliveries. Head’s knock was also the fastest-ever hundred by an SRH batter. His 41-ball 102 set the stage for SRH to produce another massive total on the night.

With the score at 165/2 in just 12.3 overs, it was a chance for Heinrich Klaasen and Aiden Markram to build on the strong start and fire Hyderabad even further ahead.

The away fans got what they expected of the explosive Proteas batter as he went on to complete his half-century in just 23 balls. As if Travis’s knock wasn’t enough for the visitors, Klaasen went on to whip up another storm in Bengaluru as his 31-ball 67 helped SunRisers Hyderabad post a mammoth total of 287/3, breaking their own record for the highest total ever in IPL history.
