IPL: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians clash creates T20 cricket history with highest-ever match aggregate | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Hyderabad witnessed a historic day as Sunrisers Hyderabad clinched a thrilling victory over Mumbai Indians by 31 runs in a high-scoring encounter at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Wednesday.
Batting first, Sunrisers embarked on a record-breaking spree, posting an astounding 277/3 in their allotted 20 overs. This remarkable total shattered the IPL record for the highest-ever team total, previously held by Royal Challengers Bangalore (263/5 vs Pune Warriors India) in 2013.

In reply, Mumbai Indians launched a valiant pursuit but fell short, accumulating 246/5 in their 20 overs. Nonetheless, their total became the highest second-innings score in IPL history.

The combined total of 523 runs marked a new milestone in T20 cricket, becoming the highest match aggregate ever recorded, surpassing the previous record set in a T20I between South Africa and West Indies.
It was the first time the match aggregate crossed the 500-run mark in IPL history.
Sunrisers’ formidable batting lineup, led by Heinrich Klaasen (80* off 34), Abhishek Sharma (63 off 23), and Travis Head (62 off 24), propelled them to their historic total. Aiden Markram’s contribution of 42 off 28 balls added to Mumbai Indians’ woes.

Despite a spirited effort from Mumbai’s Tilak Varma (64 off 34) and Tim David (42* off 22), Sunrisers’ monumental total proved insurmountable. While Mumbai’s batters showed resilience, the task ultimately proved too formidable as Sunrisers emerged victorious in a match that will be remembered for its record-breaking feats.
Highest match aggregate in a men’s T20 match:
523 – SRH vs MI, Hyderabad, IPL 2024
517 – SA vs WI, Centurion, 2023
515 – QG vs MS, Rawalpindi, PSL 2023
506 – Surrey vs Middlesex, The Oval, T20 Blast 2023
