The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a game of nail-biting finishes, record-breaking performances, and nerve-wreaking final overs. We all can agree that the IPL is a tournament where many great players come under immense pressure. This pressure can either motivate the team to reach a new high or dip into new lows.
Although we have seen teams scoring some of the best runs in the IPL season, there are some forgettable moments where the team have put the lowest scores by succumbing to the pressure created by the opposing team. From 2008 to 2022, there have been some genuinely dismal batting displays, with teams being bowled out for embarrassingly low scores. Whether it Royal Challengers Bangalore (all-out at 49 runs), Rajasthan Royals (all-out at 58 runs), Delhi Capitals (all-out at 66 runs), and more, each of the IPL team have scored the lowest scores in the IPL seasons. In this article, we will take a look at some of the lowest scores in IPL history.
