RCB holds the record for both the highest and lowest total in IPL history. Their lowest score occurred during the 2017 season against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens.

RCB won the toss and chose to bowl first. Despite their bowlers performing well and restricting KKR to just 131 all out in 19.3 overs, RCB faced unexpected challenges in their batting innings.

Despite having strong batsmen like Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Kedhar Jadhav, none of the RCB players could reach double digits in runs.

Consequently, the entire team was dismissed for just 49 runs in 9.4 overs, marking the lowest total in IPL history for both RCB and the league. KKR emerged victorious in that match by a margin of 82 runs.

Eventually, the entire team was out for just 68 runs in 16.1 overs. Glenn Maxwell (12) and Suyash Prabhudessai (15) were the only ones to score more than 10 runs. Additionally, 12 runs came as extras out of the total 68 runs.

This became the second-lowest total in Bangalore’s history. In response, SRH easily chased the target, scoring 72/1 in just 8 overs to win the match comfortably. They secured victory by nine wickets with 72 balls remaining.

3. 70 All Out vs CSK in IPL 2019

The third-lowest total for Bangalore happened against Chennai Super Kings in the 2019 season. It was the first match of the tournament in Chennai.

CSK won the toss and decided to bowl first on a spinning pitch. With three specialist spinners, CSK executed a strong strategy. RCB lost their first wicket at 16 runs, followed by a quick succession of wickets.

Opener Parthiv Patel was the last to fall in the 17.1 overs, scoring 29 out of the team’s 70 runs. None of the other batters reached double digits.

Harbhajan Singh (3/20) and Imran Tahir (3/9) caused the damage. CSK, although struggling initially, chased down the target in 17.4 overs, making 71/3. This match marked RCB’s joint-third lowest total in IPL history.
