Batting first, SRH posted a mammoth total of 212/6, courtesy of David Warner (81).
In reply, KXIP stumbled against the spin of Rashid Khan.
Here're the records broken.
SRH register their second highest score in power-play
SRH's top order put up another strong show as they scored their highest power-play total of 2019.
They scored 77 runs, which is only two runs short of their record of 79, scored against Kolkata Knight Riders in 2017.
Interestingly, out of their top five power-play scores, three have come this year, while all have come playing in Hyderabad.
David Warner scripts another half-century
SRH opener David Warner continued his run scoring form in the ongoing IPL, as he equaled his own record of the most half-centuries in a season.
Warner has so far scored nine half-centuries this IPL, while he had done the same during the 2016 edition.
The list is led by Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli, who scored 11 half-centuries during the 2016 season.

How did the match pan out?
KXIP skipper Ravichandran Ashwin won the toss and elected to field first.
However, the decision turned out to be a nightmare as Warner played a boisterous knock of 81 that propelled SRH to a total of 212/6.
In reply, it was SRH's charismatic spinner Rashid, whose lethal spell of 3/21 inflicted damage to KXIP's batting line-up, as SRH raced away with a win.
