Kolkata Knight Riders – 67 versus Mumbai Indians, 2008

MI vs KKR 2008

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were shot out for just 67 runs in the inaugural edition of the IPL after being put in to bat. It was Shaun Pollock who was the wrecker-in-chief for Mumbai Indians (MI) as he ran through the top order of KKR. The other bowlers too chipped in and all that KKR could manage was 67 in 15.2 overs.

Incredibly, the chase was down inside the first six overs as Sanath Jayasuriya raced to 48 run in just 17 balls to take MI home.

KXIP vs DD

Delhi Daredevils (DD) fell victim to the stupendous swing bowling of Kings XI Punjab‘s (KXIP) Sandeep Sharma as they were skittled out for just 67. The score could have been much worse but for a mild rearguard from Corey Anderson and to an extent from Kagiso Rabada which saw the score to in excess of 60.

In the chase, KXIP aced it as expected in less than 8 overs without losing a wicket. Martin Guptill raced to a fifty while Hashim Amla played anchor as the chase was comfortably completed.

Delhi Daredevils – 66 versus Mumbai Indians, 2017

Mumbai Indians scored a whopping 212 runs batting first courtesy of Calypso brilliance from Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons. The 19 extras bowled by their opponent Delhi Daredevils didn’t help either.

In a mammoth chase, the Delhi batsmen crumbled and fell apart like a pack of cards. Spinners Karn Sharma and Harbhajan Singh wreaked havoc to bowl the batsmen out for 66 and seal a record-breaking 146-run win.

Rajasthan Royals – 58 versus Royal Challengers Bangalore, 2009

On a difficult Newlands pitch in the second edition of the IPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Rahul Dravid showed why he is among the best batsmen in cricket history with a remarkable show of patience and grit. Apart from Kevin Pietersen, Dravid was the only one to cross 30. ‘The Wall’ scored a dogged 66 off 48 balls to take his side to a total of 133.

In the chase, Rajasthan Royals had no clue to Anil Kumble’s brilliance. They were bowled out for a paltry 58 runs in 15 overs with Kumble returning jaw-dropping figures of 5-5 in 3.1 overs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore – 49 versus Kolkata Knight Riders, 2017

Chasing a modest total of 132, Royal Challengers Bangalore had no clue they were about to make an unwanted record. Facing hostile bowling spells from the likes of Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Colin de Grandhomme, the Bangalore batsmen fell apart and succumbed at will.

Not one batsman crossed double figures and the extras was the joint-highest run-scorer. The innings was over in less than 10 overs. And the score read an unbelievable ’49’.
