IPL is known for high-scoring matches just like other T20Is. Anything between 180-220 is considered a winning score in IPL. With the new techniques evolved by the batsmen, it is going to be more difficult for the bowlers to win the game. Here in this post, we will see some lowest score defended in IPL history.

Earlier in IPL, we have seen that high totals have been chased by the batting team. Rajasthan Royals holds the record of making the highest chase(224) in IPL 2020 against PBKS. However, there are also some IPL games in which the teams have successfully defended even very small totals.
