Only ten times 250+ has been scored in the IPL.

There was a time when a target of 250 runs in an ODI game was considered a big total. But the time has changed, and 250 runs are scored in 20 overs. Especially in the Indian Premier League (IPL), some of the highest T20 totals are registered. The IPL has changed the dynamics of cricket.

The highest total in franchise cricket history is registered in the IPL, and the highest second innings score in all T20s was registered in the IPL. Before 2024, only twice 250+ totals were scored in the IPL, but in the IPL 2024 edition, eight times 250+ was scored by teams. But have you ever wondered which team has crossed the 250-run mark most times in the history of the IPL? Let’s find out.

Here is the list of Teams with most 250+ totals in IPL history

6. Delhi Capitals – 1 Time
