Five Highest Scores in IPL

The Indian Premier League is synonymous with explosive batting, boundary-clearing sixes, and high-scoring encounters.

Since its inception in 2008, the tournament has witnessed some incredible batting displays, pushing the boundaries of what's considered a good total in T20 cricket. Let's delve into the top 5 highest scores registered in IPL history, highlighting the teams and the players who orchestrated these batting blitzkriegs.

These top 5 scores showcase the ever-evolving nature of batting in the IPL. With innovative batting techniques, powerful strokes, and smaller grounds, high-scoring encounters are becoming a hallmark of the tournament.

It will be intriguing to see if these records are challenged in the upcoming seasons, pushing the boundaries of T20 cricket even further.

1) Sunrisers Hyderabad: 287/3 vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (IPL 2024)

Taking the top spot with a phenomenal score of 287/3 is Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a match played on April 15th, 2024, in Bengaluru. This record-breaking feat shattered the previous record, also held by SRH.

The Orange Army's batting masterclass was spearheaded by the opening duo of Abhishek Sharma (124) and Kane Williamson (87).

Their blistering partnership of 215 runs laid the foundation for the mammoth total. Rahul Tripathi (47*) provided the finishing flourish, ensuring SRH posted an almost unassailable target, which RCB eventually fell short of.

2) Sunrisers Hyderabad: 277/3 vs Mumbai Indians (IPL 2024)

SRH seems to have found a particular liking for high scores in IPL 2024. They make a second appearance on this list with a score of 277/3 against Mumbai Indians (MI) on March 27th, 2024, in Hyderabad.

This match showcased another dominant opening partnership, with Abhishek Sharma (112) and Priyam Garg (96) wreaking havoc on the MI bowling attack. The duo put on a 207-run stand, effectively taking the game away from the five-time champions.

Nicholas Pooran (48*) ensured SRH continued the momentum, propelling them to the second-highest total in IPL history.

3) Kolkata Knight Riders: 272/7 vs Delhi Capitals (IPL 2024)

Breaking the monopoly of SRH in this list is Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) with their score of 272/7 against Delhi Capitals (DC) on April 3rd, 2024, in Visakhapatnam. KKR displayed a team batting effort, with contributions from almost every batsman.

The innings were anchored by a steady knock from Nitish Rana (83), while Venkatesh Iyer (54) and Andre Russell (48*) provided the big hitting towards the end. This score, the third-highest ever, proved too much for DC to chase down.

4) Sunrisers Hyderabad: 266/7 vs Delhi Capitals (IPL 2024)

Yes, you read that right! SRH makes a third appearance on this list, a testament to their exceptional batting form in IPL 2024.

This time, they piled up 266/7 against DC in Delhi on April 20th, 2024. Openers Abhishek Sharma (78) and Kane Williamson (62) once again provided a solid foundation. The middle order, comprising Rahul Tripathi (42) and Nicholas Pooran (40), kept the momentum going.

Despite a valiant effort from DC's Rishabh Pant (78), SRH managed to secure another convincing victory.

5) Royal Challengers Bangalore: 263/5 vs Gujarat Lions (IPL 2016)

The only team other than SRH in the top 5 for highest scores is Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). They achieved this feat with a score of 263/5 against Gujarat Lions (GL) in 2016.

This match played on April 24th in Rajkot, witnessed a masterclass from the legendary Chris Gayle. The “Universe Boss” smashed an unbeaten 175 off just 66 balls, peppering the boundary with 13 fours and 17 sixes.

This inning remains the highest individual score in IPL history and played a pivotal role in RCB's emphatic win.
