Highest Run Chase In Indian T20 League

Chasing a target in any form of the game is a difficult art. Teams always have to maintain their required run rate and also ensure they don’t take too many wickets. In the Indian T20 League, chasing has been a tricky art, depending on the kind of score a team is chasing. Let’s have a look at some of the highest run chase in the history of the tournament.

Top 5 highest run chase in Indian T20 League

  1. Rajasthan (215 runs)

In the inaugural season of the tournament in 2008, Rajasthan played the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in the 9th match of the season. Batting first, the Chargers hit 214/5 with Late A. Symonds hitting an unbeaten 117. In reply, thanks to G. Smith (71), Y. Pathan (61), M. Kaif (34), and Late S. Warne (22*), the Jaipur-based team chased down the target with one ball remaining. 

  1. Mumbai (219 runs)

In the 2021 season, old-time rivals, Mumbai and Chennai locked horns in the 17th match. Batting first, the Yellow brigade amassed 218/4. In reply, after being reduced to 81/3, K. Pollard (87*) rescued the team and helped them chase the target on the last ball of the match. 

  1. Rajasthan (224 runs)

In the 2020 season, Rajasthan and Punjab played in the 9th game. Batting first, Punjab posted 223/2 on the board. While chasing, despite a great platform by S. Samson and S. Smith, the Blue Brigade was struggling to get close due to R. Tewatia’s inability to middle the ball. However, the left-hander hit five sixes against S. Cottrell ensured that the team won the game by four wickets. 

  1. Rajasthan (224 runs)

In the 31st game of the ongoing season between Rajasthan and Kolkata, the two-time winners batted first and scored 223/6, thanks to S. Narine’s maiden T20 hundred. In reply, the Pink Brigade were 121/6 at one stage. Thanks to an unbeaten hundred from J. Buttler, the team won the game by two wickets. 

  1. Punjab (262 runs)

Before the ongoing season, a target of more than 250 was deemed not chaseable as it was never done before. However, in the 42nd match between Kolkata and Punjab, the S. Iyer-led side amassed 261/6. In reply, the Mohali-based team chased down the target in just 18.4 overs to emerge victorious.
