The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most popular cricket leagues in the world. The league has been running since 2008 and has seen some of the best cricketers in the world compete for the title.
In a format like the IPL, where teams have only 20 overs to score as many runs as possible, it is rare to see a team bowled out for a very low score. However, it has happened a few times in the IPL’s history.
The lowest IPL score ever
The lowest IPL score ever is 49 runs. This was the score of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on April 23, 2017, at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
The RCB were bowled out in just 9.4 overs, with only three batsmen reaching double digits. Chris Gayle top-scored with 13 runs, while Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers were both dismissed for 9 runs.
The KKR bowlers were led by Sunil Narine, who took 3 wickets for 12 runs.

In addition to the 49 runs scored by RCB, there have been a few other low scores in IPL history:
- Rajasthan Royals (RR) scored 58 runs against RCB in 2009.
