Inaugural IPL champions Rajasthan Royals hold the record for chasing down the highest total in the history of the cash-rich league.

The Royals' set the record in the first season itself when the Shane Warne-led unit chased down 215 against the Deccan Chargers.

Over the course of the next 12 years, a lot of sides chased down totals in excess of 200, but none came anywhere close to scaling what RR achieved in 2008.

That all changed during the 2020 season, where the Rajasthan Royals went a step ahead and gunned down 224 against the Punjab Kings in the most staggering way possible.

The victory was achieved thanks to Rahul Tewatia's astounding assault at the back end of the innings. The southpaw, who struggled to get going in the first half of his innings, turned it around in a sensational manner by smashing 7 sixes to lead RR to an unprecedented heist.

In 2021, Mumbai Indians gunned down CSK'S 218 thanks to a power packed knock from Kieron Pollard to seal the 2nd highest run-chase in IPL history.

Rajasthan's chase of 215 against Deccan in 2008 is at the 3rd spot, followed by LSG's scaling of 211 against MI in IPL 2022.

The top-5 is completed by the Delhi Capitals, which chased down 209 against the Gujarat Lions in the 2017 edition following whirlwind knocks from Rishabh Pant (97 off 43) and Sanju Samson (61 off 31).
