Only seven times 250+ has been scored in the IPL history.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has undeniably established itself as the most exciting T20 franchise tournament in the world. With the world’s best players plying their trade, the IPL is sure to produce fireworks and has predictably done so in the last 15 seasons.

The marquee T20 league has also seen some of the highest totals in the format’s history. With some highest totals on the horizon, many other records also get established on the way, putting those players on the map that otherwise might have found it difficult to get recognition fast.

Here we take a look at top five highest totals in IPL history:

5. Royal Challengers Bangalore – 263/5 vs PWI, IPL 2013:

Pune Warriors didn’t have a worse outing than the one dished out by Chris Gayle’s fireworks during IPL 2013. The Jamaican’s 175, headlined by 17 towering sixes, stands as the highest T20 score ever as it catapulted RCB to a behemoth 263 in 20 overs. While the West Indies’ left-hander undeniably demolished the opposition, AB de Villiers didn’t hold anything back either and hammered 31 off eight balls.

The Warriors fell like a pack of cards in pursuit of accomplishing the target. Steve Smith top-scored with 41, but RCB’s bowlers reigned supreme to ram home a 130-run win.

4. Sunrisers Hyderabad – 266/7 vs DC, IPL 2024:
