You Won’t Believe How Many 250+ Scores have been made this Season!


The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season has been witnessing an unprecedented surge in high-scoring games, with the Delhi Capitals setting a new benchmark in their latest encounter. On a sunny Saturday afternoon at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, the Capitals turned the game into a veritable run-fest against the Mumbai Indians, recording their highest-ever IPL score of 257/4.

The match, which saw the Capitals notch their second consecutive 200-plus score at home, was highlighted by the explosive batting of young Jake Fraser-McGurk, who blazed his way to an 84 off just 27 balls. Tristan Stubbs provided ample support with a dazzling unbeaten 48 from 25 deliveries.

25th Time

This season has been remarkable for the sheer number of high totals, with the Capitals’ latest feat marking the 25th time a team has crossed the 200-run threshold. More notably, it’s the eighth instance this year that a team has breached the 250-run mark – a milestone that had only been achieved ten times in the previous 17 years of IPL history.

The Capitals’ 257/4 against the Mumbai Indians is a testament to the evolving dynamics of the game, where aggressive batting and high-risk strategies are increasingly becoming the norm.
