In cricket, the fielding restriction regulations known as the powerplay provide the batsmen an advantage. In the Indian Premier League, the powerplay is a crucial technique that aids the batting side in making a strong start. The top 10 powerplay scores in IPL history are listed here.

The highest powerplay score in IPL history is 105 runs, achieved by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in 2017.

RCB was batting first, and their opening duo of Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle went all guns blazing to take their team to an astounding total in just six overs.

Kohli smashed a blistering 75 off just 32 balls, while Gayle played second fiddle with his sedate knock of 49 off 21 balls. The KKR bowlers were completely clueless as they leaked runs at an alarming rate, conceding more than ten runs per over.

Though RCB lost some momentum after the powerplay, they still managed to post a mammoth total of 213/2. This record-breaking performance is widely regarded as one of the most exhilarating displays of T20 cricket ever witnessed.

What is Powerplay in IPL?

  • The first six overs in an innings are the powerplay overs.
  • Powerplay is simply a set of fielding restrictions imposed on the bowling team.
  • During the powerplay overs, only two fielders are allowed outside the 30-yard circle.

The batter is encouraged to take chances and aim for big hits during the powerplay because he won’t have to worry about being caught. When the batters act too recklessly, the bowlers might also profit from the powerplay. The vast majority of teams that amass big run totals during powerplay overs win the game.
