Sunrisers Hyderabad’s skipper, Pat Cummins, breathed a sign of relief after winning a run feast against the Mumbai Indians by 31 runs. After being invited to bat first, Sunrisers Hyderabad registered the highest IPL score ever in history, making 277/3.

Pat Cummins was excited after SRH registered their first victory of the season in front of a home crowd.

Cummins was all praise for Abhishek Sharma’s fearless approach in his innings.

In his post-match ceremony, Pat Cummins said, “That was insane. It’s one of those games. It felt like they were finding boundaries whenever they wanted. It was good to finish on the winning side. In IPL, we have played in front of big crowds, and to see Abhishek Sharma play with freedom was good to watch. You never played for 270. We wanted to play positively with the impact player and score aggressively.”
