Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) slammed a long-time record held by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Pat Cummins-led side now has the most sixes by the team in the single edition of the league. 

SRH achieved the feat in the game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The match between the two teams took place on Wednesday (8th May) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. 

SRH displayed a brutal display and hammered the opposition by 10 wickets to make their case strong for the playoffs of the IPL 2024. On the birthday of their skipper Pat Cummins, the team came up with a sensational performance at their home ground. 

They were asked to field first and they bowled sensationally well. SRH restricted Lucknow Super Giants to just 165 runs and it seemed that it would be a cracker of a game. But the opening batters made a mockery of the opposition’s bowling lineup.
