Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) made a travesty of the Gujarat Lions (GL) bowling attack as they won the game by a mammoth margin of 144 runs in the 44th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Bengaluru. RCB have been one of the most high-scoring teams and have scored gigantic totals in the past as well.

T20 games have evolved; with new rules, king-sized bats and quicker outfields coming into play. A bowler’s life has become miserable as the margin for error is minimal. Runs are being scored heavily across the globe in various tournaments and RCB with their total of 3 for 248 in 20 overs once again make it to the top 10 highest totals’ table. They are also leading the chart with their score of 5 for 263 against Pune Warriors India (PWI) at Bengaluru in 2013 edition of the IPL.

RCB have made it to the list on couple of occasions whereas Chennai Super Kings (CSK) also hold the eighth position. Sri Lanka for their marvellous outing against Kenya in the inaugural edition of the world T20 have claimed the second spot. One can expect these records to be broken as the batting keeps enhancing with time passing by. Check out the whole table here:
