First Time Ever In IPL History: KKR's Mammoth 272 Scripts Momentous Record

Kolkata Knight Riders scripted history by posting a mammoth total of 272/7 during the IPL 2024 match against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday. Sunil Narine and Angkrish Raghuvanshi were the top performers while Andre Russell was yet again at his explosive best as the KKR batters made short work of the DC bowling attack. While KKR fell short of beating the highest IPL score of all time - 277/3 - that belongs to Sunrisers Hyderabad, this was the highest total posted by a side away from home in the IPL.

Highest score by an IPL side at an away ground -

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals - IPL 2024 (Vizag) - 272/7

Lucknow Super Giants vs Punjab Kings - IPL 2023 (Mohali) - 257/5

Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad - IPL 2024 (Hyderabad) - 246/5

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings - IPL 2018 (Indore) - 245/6

Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings - IPL 2008 (Mohali) - 240/5

KKR's herculean target of 273 turned out to be too much for the DC as they gave in to the pressure and ended up suffering a 106-run defeat.

The pace duo of Mitchell Starc and Vaibhav Arora bagged two wickets each to reduce DC to 33/4 in the powerplay.

The early blow derailed DC's approach to chasing down the massive total which got more challenging with each delivery.

Skipper Rishabh Pant (55) and Tristan Stubbs (54) bought up a 93-run stand with some effortless power hitting and gave the home fans something to cheer about. '

Pant scored back-to-back half-centuries in the IPL showcasing signs of him returning to his prime form.

But after Pant's dismissal, the writing was on the wall for DC as they ended up losing the game with a massive margin of 106 runs.

KKR marched on to the top of the table with their third consecutive win of the campaign.
