IPL History: Top 5 teams with the lowest NRR in a season
#4 Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2008: -1.16
At number 4, there is the Royal Challengers Bangalore from the 2008 edition. The inaugural edition of the IPL was one the most dreadful seasons as far as RCB is concerned.
The Bengaluru side was pinned down by a Mccullum special at the Chinnaswamy stadium in the very first game of the IPL. Kolkata Knight Riders won the game by a massive margin of 140 runs. The tournament was below average and the RCB side finished 7th in the league, only ahead of the Deccan Chargers.
RCB was loaded with many legends of the game such as Rahul Dravid, Mark Boucher, Kallis, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Misbah-ul-Haq, but they couldn’t leave the same legacy in this newest format of the game that was brewing across everywhere around the world.
In the tournament, RCB scored a total of 1983 runs in 272.4 overs, while a total of 2205 runs in 261.3 overs were scored against them. RCB ended with an NRR of -1.16.
