Sunrisers Hyderabad posted the highest ever IPL total of 277 for 3 against Mumbai Indians before registering a 31-run victory in a powerful batting contest at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium that left bowlers on both sides perplexed. Left-handed SRH batsman Abhishek Sharma was also one of the hitters who shone on match day. Abhishek scored 63 runs off 23 balls with the help of 3 fours and 7 sixes. He reached his half-century in 16 balls, which is now the fastest by any SRH batter in IPL history.

Despite his superb knock, the former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singhwho also happens to be Abhishek’s idol and mentor, chastised the player for the way he was dismissed.

It was a short, quick ball from Piyush Chawal that saw Abhishek pull it in the air before The Plant Man completed the catch at mid-wicket.

“Waah sir Abhishek waah, great innings but what a splendid shot to get out! Laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahi maante! Special (slipper emoji) awaits you now @IamAbhiSharma4,” Yuvraj wrote on X.

Young left-handed batter Abhishek said the message from the team management was quite simple ‘go out and express yourself’ as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Mumbai Indians in an IPL match that saw records falling like bowling pins .

“To be honest, I didn’t realize it was the fastest fifty for SRH and for this year. I just wanted to go and express myself and after coming out I realized it was the fastest .I enjoyed it,” said ‘Man of the Match’ Sharma after the match.

“I think the message was pretty simple for all the hitters in the meeting we had before this game. ‘Everyone is going to speak up’. It’s a very positive message if you get it from your captain and from your coach. It’s really a support for all hitters.
