SRH vs MI clash: Hardik Pandya booed again, SRH create IPL history with 277/3; Travis Head's smashing record gives déjà vu

It has been a sensational game of cricket. An absolute marvel at Hyderabad but it was SRH that played exceptionally well and won the match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad made 277-3 for the highest-ever Indian Premier League total as Heinrich Klassen, Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head helped SRH create history against Mumbai Indians at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Well and once again Hardik was criticised.

And it looks like MI's new captain Hardik Pandya's misery is far from getting over. After facing the ire of the on-field crowd during GT vs MI match. The newly appointed Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Hardik Pandya was booed again by the Hyderabad crowd during MI's second game of the season against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, March 27.

The incident happened after he won the toss and his name was announced for him to step forward. He was massively booed by the crowd. Despite trolling Hardik kept his cool throughout at the toss.

SRH creates history in IPL

It was raining sixes with 18 hits over the fence in 20 overs of Hyderabad's innings as the South African pair of Klaasen and Aiden Markram, who hit 42, posted an unbeaten stand of 116.

Memes erupted on social media on Hardik Pandya after SunRisers Hyderabad smashed 277

From jokes about Hardik Pandya's captaincy to highlighting Travis Head's being a beast and Hardik missing the World Cup Travis is just giving him what happened on November 19, 2023.

Captain Hardik Pandya was also criticised during the SunRisers Hyderabad innings for holding back Jasprti Bumrah, their best bowler. Bumrah walked into the attack in the 4th over, by which Head found his range, taking the team total to 40 for 0.

Bumrah bowled only one over until the 13th over of the innings and by then SunRisers had gone past 170, thanks to some sensational big-hitting from Head and young Abhishek Sharma, who smashed 7 sixes for his 23-ball 63.

After bringing him on board, MI even appointed the all-rounder as the captain of the time replacing their five-time winning skipper Rohit Sharma which irked MI fans who felt that Rohit hadn't been treated right by the franchise.
