Highest team totals in IPL
263 for 5 wkts by Royal Challengers Bangalore against Pune Warriors, built mainly around the fastest T20 century scored by Chris Gayle, followed by some very innovative shots by AB de Villiers. RCB hit 21 sixes in their inning, another record.

246 from 20 overs is a run rate of 12.30 which Chennai Super Kings finished with against Rajasthan Royals in a match at Chepauk back on 3 April 2010. Murali Vijay was the main architect of the mamoth total, scoring amazing 127 off just 56 balls with 8 fours and as many as 11 sixes all round the park. Vijay, regarded as a test material earlier, played a chanceless innings that day and mesmerised visitors although they put up a brave fight by losing the match only by 23 runs that too thanks to superb 4 overs for just 15 runs by Doug Bollinger on one of flattest pitch you'll ever find in India.

Chennai, that day, broke their own record of 240 vs Kings XI Punjab they had scored in the first edition in 2008 at Mohali. That too was a very high scoring game with home team replying with 207 for 4 wkts.

Lowest team totals in IPL
IPL 2009, the second edition, was played in South Africa and it wasn't a very high scoring tournament as it was very late in the domestic season and pitches had lost it's pace and asian players failed to cope up with invariable bounce. In this match played at Newlands ground in Cape Town, Rajasthan Royals had managed to limit Royal Challengers to 133 but Anil Kumble's fastish leg spin proved too hot to handle for them. Former Indian captain took 5 wickets for just 5 runs in his 3.1 overs and only 3 RR batters reached double figure scores (all making exactly 11).

Biggest IPL chase

Riding on century from Andrew Symonds, Hyderabad based team had notched up solid 214 for 5 wickets from their 20 overs having being put in to bat but the decision didn't come to haunt captain Shane Warne as he was unbeaten at the crease when winning runs were made. Graeme Smith and Shane Watson played crucial roles in the chase, scoring 71 and 61 respectively (Watson hit 6 sixes in his 28 ball knock) and then Mohammad Kaif kept the flame burning with a 16 ball 34. Warne pulled a rabbit out of his hat by stroking two sixes and two fours in his 9 ball innings to script thrilling win for Royals off the second last ball.
