Sunrisers Hyderabad yet again stunned the cricketing world with their blistering start in the game against Delhi Capitals on Saturday, April 20 in IPL 2024. Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma destroyed the Delhi bowlers with their brutal strokes. 

The first six overs of the innings saw 125 runs being scored which is the highest ever powerplay score in IPL history. None of the bowlers employed by Rishabh Pant were spared by the two SRH openers.

Travis Head, in particular, was severe on all the bowlers as he set the tone with a brutal assault against Khaleel Ahmed in the first over.
