Inaugural IPL champions Rajasthan Royals hold the record of the highest chase in IPL. They achieved this feat against the Deccan Chargers. It was the 9th match of the first season of the IPL and was played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Rajasthan Royals won the toss and chose to bowl first.

The IPL points table 2021 has now been updated here.

Deccan Chargers had a shaky start and lost 2 wickets before 50 runs. But then Andrew Symonds and Rohit Sharma provided stability to the innings and Symonds went on to score 117 runs. The innings ended with 214 runs on the board for Deccan Chargers. Rajasthan Royals lost their first wicket quickly but then got hold of the game and worked their way towards the highest score chased in IPL. Yousuf Pathan was awarded the Man of the Match trophy for his 61 runs from 28 ball innings and 2 wickets.

The record for IPL highest chase is still standing strong after more than 12 years. A lot of teams have come close to it but have failed to surpass it. Other high run chases include Delhi Daredevils’s chase of 209 against Gujarat Lions in 2017 and Chennai Super Kings’s chase of RCB’s 206 in 2012 and 2018.
