In the tournament, teams such as Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Chennai Super Kings have amassed the most 200-plus totals. Once more, Mumbai Indians capitalized on the last five overs in their match against Delhi Capitals, smashing 96 runs thanks to Romario Shepherd.

To acknowledge this, we've identified the top four instances where a team scored the most runs in the last five overs of an innings in IPL history.

4. Royal Challengers Bangalore - 91 Runs vs Kolkata Knight Riders, 2019

In recent years, the unluckiest team in the Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore, has boasted some serious pinch hitters.

Batting first in the 2019 edition against KKR, RCB achieved a mammoth score of 213 runs. Virat Kohli's century and Moeen Ali's explosive 66-run knock off just 28 deliveries were instrumental. Both batters, taking on the likes of Prasidh Krishna and Kuldeep Yadav, hammered 91 runs in the last five overs to reach this respectable total.

3. Punjab Kings - 96 Runs vs Mumbai Indians, 2023

In recent years, the Punjab Kings have significantly improved as a team.

During the 2023 season, both clashes against Mumbai Indians were blockbuster events. In the first encounter, Sam Curran and Jitesh Sharma aggressively faced bowlers like Jofra Archer, Jason Behrendorff, and Cameron Green, smashing 96 runs in the last five overs, which included eight sixes.
