1. Royal Challengers Bangalore – 263/5, 2013

It was an event worth mentioning in the history of cricket when RCB bagged another record of the highest team total in IPL history. And no team has broken their record yet. 

This memorable event happened back in 2013 when RCB was playing against Pune Warriors India. PWI upon winning the toss elected RCB to bat first, and the rest is history. RCB scored a massive 263 with the help of their power hitters Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. 

2. Royal Challengers Bangalore – 248/3, 2016

The next on our list is RCB once again. Though RCB is yet to win their maiden IPL title, they have the highest number of Individual and team records. Also, the team is famous for its power-packed squad, including Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, and AB de Villiers. 

RCB made this record in 2016 while they were playing in their home ground Bengaluru against Gujrat Lions. The powerful duo of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers helped score a massive 248 at the loss of 3 wickets only. And their this partnership also marked its name in the list of strongest partnerships in IPL history. 

3. Chennai Super Kings – 246/5, 2010

Dhoni-led CSK is the most dangerous team in the IPL league. They have the highest winning rate and they’re the only team to never miss the playoffs except in 2020. Also, CSK is the second team with the most IPL trophies. 

The team managed to list themselves as the best team in IPL history with their massive 246 against Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2010. Murali Vijay was the Man of the Match for his highest score of 127 on just 56 deliveries. 

4. Kolkata Knight Riders – 245/6, 2018

KKR’s skipper Dinesh Karthik played the best match strategy in the year 2018. He borrowed the idea of former captain Gautam Gambhir and let the powerful duo, Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn open the match against Kings XI Punjab. Sunil and Gautam were the most fearful duo of their era. 

It was the best season for Sunil and he scored 75 off 36 in that match. Every other batsman that followed him added a little more to the score and KKR piled up a massive 245/6. But, points for showing sportsmanship and never giving hope goes to KL Rahul, Aaron Finch, and Ravichandran Ashwin, who tried really hard and made it to the 214 runs in 20 overs. But unfortunately, that was not enough to win the match.

5. Chennai Super Kings – 240/5, 2008

Chennai Super Kings marked themselves as one of the strongest teams in IPL since the beginning of the league. And their massive 240/5 against Kings XI Punjab is the proof of it. 

It was the second match of the inaugural season and there’s was already too much drama for the spectators. Mohali stadium witnessed an unbelievable single-handed 116* off 54 deliveries by Mr Cricket, Michael Hussey. The massive target of 240 shattered KXIP’s morale and they could only reach 207 runs.

 6. Royal Challengers Bangalore – 235/1, 2015

Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, witnessed their team stumbling in front of the most powerful trio of IPL history. The match was in RCB’s favor from the very beginning, when they won the toss and decided to bat first. 

Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Chris Gayle finished the 20 overs scoring a target of 235 at the loss of a single wicket. I couldn’t chase this massive run score and could reach 196 only. 

7. Mumbai Indians – 235/9, 2021

Recently, Mumbai Indians made the highest score in IPL 2021. It is when MI was playing against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second phase of IPL in Abu Dhabi. MI won the toss and decided to bat first. 

Scores by Ishan Kishan and Surayakumar Yadav helped MI pile up a total of 235 at the loss of 9 wickets. Jason Holder of the SRH was the highest wicket-taker of the game. 

8. Kings XI Punjab – 232/2, 2011

It is for the first time that Punjab Kings appeared in the list of top ten highest team totals. They scored the highest team total while playing against RCB in 2011. Adam Gilchrist’s memorable 106* off 55 deliveries helped PBKS make a total of 232 at the loss of 2 wickets only. 

It was Kings’ day as their bowling lineup was too strong for the RCB hitters restricting them to a team total of 121 only. Even the RCB’s powerful opener Chris Gayle failed to score a single run that day. 

9. Kolkata Knight Riders – 232/2, 2019

KKR appeared once again on the list of the highest score in IPL. But, this time against MI and in their home ground Kolkata. Andre Russell was the highest run-getter of the match with 80 runs over 40 balls. 

KKR scored a massive 232 at the loss of 2 wickets only. While MI while chasing the target could only reach up to 198 in the limited-overs. And Hardik Pandya among the squad was the only one who crossed 50.

10. Delhi Daredevils – 231/4, 2011

Last but not least on our list is Delhi Capitals, previously known as Delhi Daredevils. The devils scored the highest team total while playing against Kings XI Punjab in Delhi. While in return the Kings could only make 202*.
