Highest Scores by SRH

Although Sunrisers Hyderabad only came into existence as an IPL team from the 2013 season, they have put on many a memorable batting performance and troubled many a bowling attack.

David Warner, Kane Williamson, and Co. have had a good time of it since the franchise came into existence, as this list of Highest Team Totals in IPL matches will demonstrate:

Top 5 Highest Scores by SRH in IPL


#5. 207/4 v Royal Challengers Bangalore (2017)

Highest Scores by SRH

At number five on this list of highest scores by SRH in IPL history is their total of 207/4 which they scored against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Hyderabad in 2017. Batting first, SRH got over the early loss of David Warner and set a healthy pace throughout the innings thanks to contributions from the top order. Shikhar Dhawan scored 40 while Moises Henriques and Yuvraj Singh bagged half-centuries. Yuvraj top-scored with 62 off just 27 balls, an innings that would win him the man of the match award. In the absence of regular captain Virat Kohli, RCB could only muster a paltry 172, eventually losing by 35 runs.

#4. 208/7 v Royal Challengers Bangalore (2016)

Highest Scores by SRH

Moving up on this list of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 5 highest team totals in IPL matches, and we have yet another high-scoring innings against the same opposition as the previous entry! However, unlike the match mentioned previously, Virat Kohli did feature this time, and almost guided his team to a win! This time it was Dhawan who departed first while Warner would go on to post a score of 69 in just 38 deliveries.

Yuvraj also chipped in with 38, while Ben Cutting added 39 handy runs lower down the order as the Sunrisers posted 208/7. The RCB chase seemed to be going great guns as openers Kohli and Chris Gayle raced to 114 in double quick time, only for a middle-order collapse to restrict them to 200/7 in their 20 overs and hand SRH a 7-run win.

#3. 209/3 v Kolkata Knight Riders (2017)

Highest Scores by SRH

At number 3 on this list of highest scores by SRH in IPL games, we have their mammoth effort against KKR in 2017. The Sunrisers went on the offensive right from ball one, as David Warner likes to do, and reached 139 before the first wicket fell. Out of that 139, Shikhar Dhawan had scored just 29 runs off 30 balls, with his captain Warner going great guns at the other end. The Aussie opener brought up a memorable ton off just 43 balls and ended up scoring 126.

Kane Williamson added 40 runs to take the total to 209 in their 20 overs. Despite the best efforts of Robin Uthappa in the KKR side, who top-scored with 53, the opposition could only manage 161/7 in their innings, and SRH ran out victors by 48 runs.

The top two totals on this list of highest team totals by SRH in IPL matches come from the most recent edition of the tournament.

David Warner, batting without his regular opening partner Jonny Bairstow (who had gone off to play for England) plundered 81 off 56 balls, while Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, and Mohammad Nabi played supporting roles. In reply, KL Rahul scored 79 off 56 balls but did not receive much support from his teammates as Kings XI were held to 167/8.

david warner against rcb

Jonny Bairstow and David Warner combined to form the most destructive opening pair in the 2019 edition of the IPL, and the two combined for the top spot on this list of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 5 highest scores in IPL matches. The Royal Challengers Bangalore were the unlucky opposition yet again, as Warner and Jonny Bairstow slammed centuries in an opening partnership of 185. While Bairstow departed for 114 off 56 balls, Warner remained unbeaten on 100 off 55. The RCB batting effort was just as dismal as their bowling, as they were skittled out for just 113 in 19.5 overs. Mohammad Nabi starred with 4/11 in his 4 overs, while Sandeep Sharma took 3/19 in a memorable 118-run win.
