10 Highest Scoring Matches of IPL 2022

If you’re an IPL fan, high-scoring matches are no anomaly to you, especially this season. These matches are an excuse to just sit back and enjoy stellar cricket from two teams with world-class players. So here’s looking back at the 10 highest scoring matches of IPL 2022.

10. PBKS v. RCB

Score – 209/9
Date – May 13th, 2022
Winner – PBKS
The Punjab Kings had a shining inning in the midst of a lackluster season in the match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Their sustained batting effort was faced with a fearsome bowling attack from RCB’s Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga who took 4 and 2 wickets respectively. However, their efforts fell short in the face of the brilliant innings played by Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow, who made 70 off 43 and 66 off 29 respectively. The match took PBKS a step closer to possible qualification and held RCB back with 2 essential points.

9. KKR v. RR
Score – 210/10
Date – April 18th, 2022
Winner – RR

There are some attacks that you just can’t survive. That’s what Kolkata Knight Riders learned the hard way in a generally sluggish season when they went up against Rajasthan Royals. There’s little you can do when you’re faced with a century from Jos Buttler and a fiver from Yuzvendra Chahal in the same intense match. KKR captain Shreyas Iyer made a valiant effort to take his team over the line, but even his brilliant 85 off 51 and Aaron Finch’s 58 off 28 weren’t quite enough to get the job done. KKR needed the win in order to stabilize their position on the table but alas, their best efforts didn’t quite stand against the ferocious RR attack. If this match doesn’t make it to the list of the 10 highest scoring matches of IPL 2022, none should.


8. CSK v. LSG
Score – 210/ 7
Date – March 31st, 2022
Winner – LSG

Defending champions Chennai Super Kings put up an admirable effort to regain their footing after the loss they faced in the opening match of the series. However, the string of losses was to continue, some especially severe. This match against the newly created Lucknow Super Giants was a real blow to CSK, with LSG winning by 6 wickets and 3 balls in hand. Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis, and captain KL Rahul led the batting attack for the maiden team with 61 off 45, 55 off 29, and 40 off 26 respectively. Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, and Andrew Tye all took two wickets each, further strengthening the assault on the CSK. The score was chased down fairly easily and Lucknow began to show real potential and eventually became one of the season’s favourite teams.

7. RR v. SRH
Score – 210/6
Date – March 29th, 2022
Winner – RR

In the first match of the season for both teams, Rajasthan sets the stage for their trailblazing attack for the season. Sanju Samson’s captain’s knock of 55 of just 27 deliveries was the star of the batting attack. Yuzvendra Chahal opened the season with a magnificent 3 for 22. This was also the game where we saw a glimpse of the wondrous uncapped Indian pacer Umran Malik who took 2 for 39 for the Sunrisers. However, they were stopped at an unsatisfactory 149/7 at the end of their innings, giving Rajasthan a huge margin of victory. Such a high-scoring match deserves to be talked about among the 10 highest-scoring matches of IPL 2022.

6. LSG v. KKR
Score – 210/0
Date – May 18th, 2022
Winner – LSG

This one’s cricket at its finest from LSG! Lucknow swept the game away from KKR and didn’t concede a single wicket through its innings. Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul were the sole architects of this magnificent innings with the former making a 140* and the latter a 68*. Shreyas Iyer and Rinku Singh tried desperately to get their team back in the game and they almost succeeded as the match went to the final ball. However, Marcus Stoinis’ two wickets in the last two deliveries after a very expensive over won them the match by a mere two runs. The match cemented Lucknow in the playoffs and Kolkata out of it firmly.

5. CSK v LSG
Score -LSG – 211/4
Date – March 31st, 2022
Winner- LSG

If two entries on a list of the 10 highest scoring matches of IPL 2022 are from the same match, you know it has to be special. Lucknow Super Giants have built their reputation this season as a force to reckon with. This saga of wins was cemented with this match early in the season against defending champions Chennai Super Kings. Lucknow chased down their score of 210 with a 211 losing three fewer wickets in the process. All of their big hitters brought the match home with two magnificent half-centuries and a 40-off 29 from the skipper himself. The newly made team seems to be working splendidly, overcoming new obstacles in every match.

4. DC v KKR

Score – 215/5
Date – April 10th, 2022
Winner- DC

The Delhi Capitals have struggled to find their footing this season of the IPL, with a new captain and a newly shuffled team. However, this match seemed to be a reminder of just how brilliant this team is. David Warner and Prithvi Shaw lead the batting attack with a 61 off 45 and a 51 off 29 respectively, taking the team’s total up to a 215. They defended this score deftly with Kuldeep Yadav restricting Kolkata Knight Riders’ chase to a 171 all-out. Yadav bowled a tremendous spell with 4/35, aided by Khaleel Ahmed, who bowled four overs and took 3 for 25. The match gave them the steady steps forward to now have a chance in the playoffs.

3. CSK v. RCB
Score – 216/4
Date – April 12th, 2022
Winner- CSK

The one rare occasion that the fans of CSK truly rejoiced this season was after the match early on in the tournament against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. They set a score of 216 with Shivam Dube’s incredible 95*. The match was a reminder of the immense talent of the defending champs. The bowling attacks for Chennai were led by Maheeah Theekshana’s 4-33 and new captain Ravindra Jadeja’s 3-39, restricting Bangalore to 193/9. Shahbaz Ahmed and Dinesh Karthik’s valiant efforts to take their team over the line were appreciated but not quite enough and RCB faced one of the first losses of the season.

2. RR v KKR
Score – 217/5
Date – April 18th, 2022
Winner- RR

The penultimate entry on the list of the 10 highest scoring matches of IPL 2022 was the mid-season game between Rajasthan and Kolkata. The Kolkata Knight Riders had a rocky start this season, but put up a brilliant fight against Rajasthan Royals, putting up a 210 on the board. Despite the constant wicket-taking, especially from Yuzvendra Chahal, the batting stood its ground. However, there’s little you can do when a world-class hitter like Jos Buttler hits a century in response to a high score. RR blazed through KKR’s bowling attack and ended their innings with a higher score than their opponents.

1. RR v. DC
Score – 222/2
Date – April 22, 2022
Winner- RR

This seems to be a theme with this list, a Jos Buttler century! The Delhi Capitals didn’t quite stand a chance when faced with a knock like that. With his 116 off 65 and Devdutt Padikkal’s 54 off 35, the Royals were set to create a score high enough to intimidate any playing XI in a T20. Their batting was backed by some fantastic bowling from Prasidh Krishna and Ravichandran Ashwin, who took 4 and 3 wickets respectively. This team effort took them to the highest score of the season yet and made for one of the most exciting viewing experiences for fans of the teams and the game.
