Over the years, several teams have regularly managed to cross the magical 200-run mark in their IPL innings. We take a look at the top 5 sides with the highest number of 200+ scores in the league’s history.

What is a Good Score in T20 Cricket

In T20 cricket, generally anything over 160-170 runs is considered a strong total. However, the best teams set their sights even higher – on the magic figure of 200 runs.

A score of 200 in a T20 match is akin to 300-350 in ODIs. It gives the batting side an immense psychological boost and puts pressure on the opposition. Sometimes even 350 in ODIs can be chased down, but 200 runs in T20s is a much stiffer challenge.

Which IPL Teams Have Most 200+ Scores

Over the years, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings, and Kolkata Knight Riders have been the best at regularly breaching the 200-run barrier. Between them, these 5 franchises account for almost 60% of all 200 plus scores notched up in the lucrative league.

5. Kolkata Knight Riders – 19 Times

With attacking batsmen like Andre Russell over the years, Kolkata Knight Riders have scored 200 runs 19 times in IPL history. They set the ball rolling in the very first match when Brendon McCullum blasted 175 runs from 66 balls against RCB. Even in the 2022 season, KKR still managed to score over 200 runs a remarkable 3 times.

4. Punjab Kings – 21 Times

The batting firepower of Punjab Kings has enabled them to cross the magical 200-run mark 21 times. With the likes of KL Rahul formerly leading them, this tally is only expected to grow in coming years. The addition of power hitters like Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow adds even more firepower to their batting unit.

3. Mumbai Indians – 22 Times

Boasting an enviable pool of talent, defending champions Mumbai Indians may appear at only third position with 22 scores above 200 runs. But over the years, they have shown an ability to adapt their game and make a deep run in the tournament without necessarily amassing huge 200+ totals in every match. Their all-round balance helps them chase stiff targets with ease as well.

2. Royal Challengers Bangalore – 24 Times

With two of the greatest batsmen of the modern era – Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers – having plied their trade for Royal Challengers Bangalore over the years, it is hardly a surprise that RCB leads the 200 plus scores tally with 24 such mammoth totals.

In fact, RCB is the only team to have scored 200 in five consecutive innings, achieving the feat in the 2016 edition. With the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik adding even more firepower now, expect many more 200+ explosions from RCB’s batting arsenal.

1. Chennai Super Kings – 28 Times

Even though they did not feature for two seasons due to a ban, Chennai Super Kings top this list with 28 times scores above 200 runs. With the likes of captain cool MS Dhoni, batting superstar Suresh Raina, mighty Shane Watson, and classy Faf du Plessis in their ranks over the years, CSK has amassed the highest number of 200 plus scores in IPL history.

In the 2022 IPL season, they scored over 200 runs 4 times in 14 matches. As long as MS Dhoni is at the helm, expect CSK to keep blasting their way into the record books and breach 200 runs many more times in the coming years. After all, no one knows the art of finishing better than ‘Thala’ Dhoni!

Conclusion

The ability to consistently score 200 runs or more has been the defining feature of the best IPL teams over the years. As the famous saying goes – “Offense is the best defense!” By amassing such huge scores, teams seize the initiative rather than having to chase stiff targets set by the opposition.

The top 5 teams in this list have shown they have the batting prowess to take games away from rivals in a matter of overs. Expect to see more fireworks in the 2023 Indian Premier League, as these cricketing heavyweights vie for supremacy and look to blast their way into the history books.
