With a few of the biggest names in the game representing 8 franchise teams, the IPL has consistently produced memorable and exciting moments for fans globally. Elevated run totals aren’t usual in the IPL. It’s considered a poor effort if teams fail to score more than 200 runs on particular grounds. 

But at times teams take it to the next level and register enormous totals that should be the score of an ODI game. A couple of the most famous grounds, M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and Eden Garden Stadium in Kolkata are legendary for being batting havens and a graveyard for bowlers. Several teams have even chased down targets over 200 runs in such stadiums.

Leading 6 Biggest Scoreboards in IPL History 

  1. Sunrisers Hyderabad (277/3) – the team’s batsmen on 27 March 2024 smashed one of the longest-held records held by RCB by scoring 277 for the loss of just a mere 3 wickets. The team’s batsmen Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, and Travis Head rephrased IPL history by outshining RCB’s longstanding record for the highest total in the tournament’s history. RCB held this record for over a decade until Klaasen’s eruptive performance in the concluding over of the innings secured the record for the Sunrisers. Travis, Klaasen, and Abhishek scored 50s with their strike rate going over 200. 
  1. Royal Challengers Banglore (263/5) – in 2013, on April 23, the beloved IPL franchise RCB scored a colossal run total of 263 at the loss of a mere 5 wickets. The team’s star player Chris Gayle solely contributed 175 runs and stayed not out. That is thought of as a respectable team score in IPL. A couple of balls more and Gayle would have broked a double century in T20 cricket. Other RCB players such as Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Tillakaratne Dilshan played second fiddle as Gayle perpetuated his name in the history books. 
  1. Lucknow Super Giants (257/5) – this team almost overtook RCB’s near-undestroyable record when they scored 257 runs in 20 overs, losing just 5 wickets. LSG batted initially against PBK and every player entered the pitch and started hitting boundaries. Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis were the MVPs, scoring 45 off 10 and 72 off 40, respectively. PBKs also batted well and could have won on any other day but fell short by 56 runs even after attaining 201 runs. 
  1. Royal Challengers Banglore (248/3) – it’s an infrequent scenario when 2 players score a century in the same T20 match. RCB achieved this back in 2016 against the Gujarat Lions. AB de Villiers scored 129 runs in 52 balls, while Virat Kohli scored 109 runs in 55 deliveries. Gujarat Lions were limited to 104 runs in twenty overs. 
  1. Chennai Super Kings (246/5) – CSK and RR played in a traditional match back in 2010. CSK scored 246 runs batting initially with 5 wickets to spar. RR also played excellently but could just manage to reach 223 runs. CSK’s Murali Vijay was the MVP of the match, scoring 127 runs in 56 deliveries. 
  1. Kolkata Knight Riders (245/6) – Kings XI Punjab were in another elevated-scoring but exciting match when KKR registered an enormous 245 run total in 20 overs. The man of the match was Sunil Narine. The West Indies all-rounder opened for Kolkata and scored 75 runs off 26 balls. Punjab put up a fight, with captain Ravichandran Ashwin and his team doing their best but all in vain. KKR triumphed by 31 runs.
