In this match, there was a storm of Gayle at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium and the Pune Warriors were caught in the middle. On this fateful night of April 23, 2013, Chris Gayle left Pune and records fell at every step. He scored 175*, which till date is the highest individual score in IPL and T20 cricket. Gayle hit 13 fours and 17 huge sixes in the fastest century in IPL, while AB de Villiers scored 31 runs in just 8 balls to help RCB reach 263/5, the highest team score in IPL history. This is also RCB's highest score in IPL.
Pune could not even close in their reply and were restricted to 133/9 in their 20 overs. It is no surprise that Gayle was named player of the match for his record. RCB's 263/5 is comfortably the highest score in IPL
Royal Challengers Bangalore have had some of the fiercest batsmen in world cricket over the years. It comes as no surprise that the second highest team score in the IPL also belongs to the Bengaluru-based franchise. This came against the now defunct Gujarat Lions in IPL 2016. Gayle fell early on the spot but Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers decided to treat the Bengaluru crowd. The duo shared a record-breaking 229-run partnership for the second wicket, helping RCB post 248/3 in 20 overs.
While Kohli finished on 109 off 55 balls, his innings laced with five fours and eight sixes, de Villiers tonked 129* off 55 balls. The target proved to be too steep for Gujarat who were restricted to 104 in 18.4 overs. De Villiers was named Player of the Match for his stellar show.
Chennai Super Kings, the three-time IPL champions are also not too far behind when it comes to the highest score in the cash-rich league. Back in IPL 2010, Chennai Super Kings, riding on a breathtaking 127 from M Vijay amassed a colossal 246/5 against Rajasthan Royals at MA Chidambaram Stadium. This remains the third highest score in IPL.
However, unlike other games on this list, this one went down to the wire. Naman Ojha came out all guns blazing in the chase scorching his way to a 55-ball 94 alongside Shane Watson’s 25-ball 60. Rajasthan Royals were in the game all through but ran out of steam in the end as they went down by 22 runs. This game remains one of the most high-scoring encounters in IPL history.
Kings XI Punjab or Punjab Kings do not have the best of bowling attacks. It is imperative that over the years they have gone for runs aplenty. In May 2018, Punjab were up against the might of Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunil Narine. Batting first, the men in purple led by Narine’s 36-ball 75 smashed 245/6 in their 20 overs. The target was always going to be colossal to chase down and while Punjab did get close they could only manage 214/8. The wrath of Narine proved too much for Punjab to handle on the day.
Chennai Super Kings were on a hot streak in the opening year of the IPL. They had a fine combination of aggressive batsmen and players who can accumulate runs at will. In just the second game of the IPL, in 2008, the world and Punjab Kings got to know why CSK will be one of the toughest sides to beat in the competition. Michael Hussey creamed 116 off just 54 balls laced with eight fours and nine sixes while Suresh Raina and. S Badrinath provided the final touches. CSK raced to 240/5 in their 20 overs the fifth highest team score in IPL,leaving Punjab shell-shocked.
James Hopes provided Punjab with the hope slamming 71 off 33 balls but the target was too steep. Eventually, Punjab could only muster 207/4. Hussey was the unanimous choice for the Player of the Match
