Top 10: Biggest Win Margin in IPL History (by Runs)

Cricket is a team sport where one team gets to win and the other, unfortunately, has to go home with a loss. Sometimes, the loss can be demoralising for a team, and it completely dents their confidence.

This kind of loss for a team can happen in any format, and more so quickly in the T20 format, where the chances of making a comeback are limited.

As far as T20s are concerned, since the game is short, a 50-run defeat can be termed a huge loss, and there are instances of teams losing by even bigger margins. The IPL has witnessed plenty of these thrashing defeats by teams, and we will list the top 10 biggest win margins in IPL history.
