Pune Warriors

In IPL 2013, the Pune Warriors (PW) were defeated by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 130 runs. In the IPL’s history, this is the fifth-largest margin of victory. At Chinnaswamy Stadium, Warriors captain Aaron Finch chose to field first after winning the toss. Chris Gayle launched a vicious onslaught against the bowlers from Pune, making him regret his choice. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Even though Gayle’s willow only cost Bhuvneshwar Kumar 8 runs in his first three overs of bowling, the other bowlers took the brunt of it. The Jamaican took just 17 deliveries to reach his fifty as RCB reached 62 for no loss after the 6 overs of the power play. Even after the power play ended and the ball had travelled to every area of the field, the Pune bowlers were in no position to rest. With a powerful six off Ashok Dinda’s bowling, Gayle reached his century in just 30 deliveries. RCB also holds the record for the IPL’s fourth-largest victory margin. This occurred when the Bangalore team defeated Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the 2015 IPL by 138 runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders

In the inaugural IPL game, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated RCB by a score of 140 runs. The third-largest margin of victory in the IPL still belongs to this victory. Rahul Dravid, captain of the RCB, called KKR to bat after winning the toss at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. As soon as the tournament began, Brendon McCullum ignited it, making him regret his choice. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated RCB by a score of 140 runs in the opening match of the IPL. This triumph still holds the third-largest victory margin in IPL history. After winning the toss at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, RCB captain Rahul Dravid ordered KKR to bat. Brendon McCullum sparked the competition right when it started, making him regret his decision.

Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians (MI) are at the top of the IPL’s list of teams with the largest victory margins. They destroyed the Delhi Capitals (DC), then known as the Delhi Daredevils, by 146 runs in the IPL 2017. Zaheer Khan, the captain of the Capitals, won the toss and decided to field first at the Kotla. With only 18 runs scored in the first 3 overs, the Mumbai franchise got off to a slow start.


Cricket fans liked witnessing two greats, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, smash fours and sixes in this particular game. With RCB scoring 248/3 in 20 overs, both of them scored hundreds. Virat scored 109 runs off of 55 balls, and de Villiers played a remarkable innings, scoring 129 runs off of just 52 balls with the help of 12 sixes and 10 fours. Gujarat’s side was all out for 104 runs, failing to even come close to the enormous 249-run target, and ultimately fell short by 144 runs.
