(Reuters) - Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday broke the record for the highest Indian Premier League total for the second time this season by scoring 287-3 against Royal Challengers Bengaluru.

It was the second highest total in a men's T20, only behind Nepal's 314-3 against Mongolia last year, and the highest in a franchise tournament.

The combined total of 549 runs was the highest ever scored in a T20 match as Royal Challengers lost by 25 runs.

Hyderabad surpassed the 277-3 posted against Mumbai Indians last month as Travis Head hit 102 off 41 balls.

Hyderabad, currently fourth in the standings with eight points, will take on Delhi Capitals on Saturday.
