SRH put the RCB bowlers to the sword at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Monday, 15 April. SRH smashed the highest-ever total in the history of the Indian Premier League, scoring 287 runs on Monday. Travis Head, Heinrich Klaasen and then later Abdul Samad were the stars of the show as SRH made merry on the flat batting track.

SRH's demolition of the RCB comes just days after the team smashed the record for the highest-ever total hit in the tournament. Against MI on 27 March, SRH had hit 277 runs, but that record barely lasted 20 days. The Pat Cummins side were sent to bat first by RCB captain Faf du Plessis, but the move did not pan out well as the SRH batters dominated from start to end.

Travis Head led the charge from the very start of the innings hitting a rapid century off just 39 balls. After Head's departure for 102 off 41 balls, Heinrich Klaasen took the onus

on himself and continued his rich vein of form. Klaasen hit 67 off 31 to set SRH up for a massive score at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Klaasen lost his wicket in the final ball of the 17th over but then it was Abdul Samad and Aiden Markram who thrashed the RCB side to bring up their highest-ever total in the history of the tournament.

SRH's 287/3 is the second highest total ever hit in the history of T20 cricket. The current record for the highest total in T20 cricket is held by Nepal, who slammed 314/3 against Mongolia in the 2023 Asian Games. No RCB bowlers were spared on the day as the SRH batters slammed 22 sixes in total. Off-spinner Will Jacks came out with the best economy of 10.67 after conceding 32 runs off his 3 overs. Reece Topley and Vijay Kumar Vyshak were worst bowlers on the night, conceding 68 and 64 runs respectively.
