Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar commended the explosive batting display by Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) openers, Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head, after their spectacular performance led to a massive victory over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Match 57 of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Highest total in the first 10 overs of an IPL match

In a game that will be remembered for its sheer dominance, the pair completed a chase of 166 runs in just 9.4 overs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. Their unbroken partnership set a new precedent for opening stands in the IPL, with Travis smashing 89 runs off just 30 balls, including 8 sixes and 8 fours. This whirlwind knock earned him the ‘Player of the Match’ award.

Sharma complemented Head perfectly, scoring 75 not out off 28 balls, adorned with 8 fours and 6 sixes. Their efforts not only led to SRH’s victory but also established a new record for the highest total in the first 10 overs of an IPL match, demonstrating the team’s record-breaking capabilities.

Sachin Tendulkar’s prediction

Reacting to the duo’s performance, Tendulkar expressed his admiration on X (formerly Twitter), stating, “A destructive opening partnership would be an understatement tonight. Had these boys batted first, they would’ve scored 300!”

Earlier, LSG managed to post a competitive 165/4, thanks to a strong 99-run partnership between Nicholas Pooran and Ayush Badoni. However, their effort was eclipsed by the sheer batting prowess displayed by Head and Sharma, who seem to consistently rewrite the record books with their performances.

This stellar victory not only boosted SRH’s morale but also served as a perfect birthday present for captain Pat Cummins, propelling the team back into the top three of the IPL 2024 points table as they gear up for the playoffs.

The exceptional skill and strategy demonstrated by SRH in this match underlined their potential as formidable contenders for the IPL title, leaving fans and cricket pundits in awe of their capacity to turn games around with remarkable ease.
