The Titans finished with 199 for 5 in 20 overs. At the top of the order, Wriddhiman Saha scored 68 runs off 38 balls.

192/4 against Rajasthan Royals (2022)

GT’s 192/4 against Rajasthan Royals at the DY Patil Stadium comes at No. 2 in the list of the top 10 GT highest scores in IPL. Rajasthan got off to a fast start while chasing down a challenging 193-run target, thanks to an aggressive first-ball performance from Jos Buttler, but the team ultimately fell short by 37 runs.

191/3 against Rajasthan Royals (2022)

Jos Buttler’s 89 off 56 went in vain as Miller and Hardik pushed the Titans into the IPL championship game. Miller maintained his unbeaten streak with a score of 68 off of 38, and his partnership of 106 runs with Hardik Pandya, who scored a modest unbeaten 40, made sure the Titans were always in front of the Rajasthan Royals’ 189-run chase. With three remaining deliveries and seven wickets in hand, they eventually reached home.

190/4 against Punjab Kings (2022)

190/4 against Punjab Kings was the GT’s 4th-highest score ever in IPL history. Once again, it was a successful run chase by the Titans. In order to steal victory from Punjab Kings, Rahul Tewatia (13* off 3) blasted two back-to-back sixes off the final two balls. Tewatia led his team to victory in a spectacular fashion as the Gujarat Titans required 12 off the final two balls. The final over by Odean Smith saw 19 runs being surrendered.

174/4 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (2022)

GT’s highest score in IPL was also scored against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Brabourne Stadium not too long ago. Captain Kohli decided to bat first, and RCB put up a decent score of 170 on the board, thanks to Virat Kohli and Rajat Patidar’s half centuries. In response, GT had a tough start, but it was David Miller and Rahul Tewatia who stole the show at the end, scoring at a strike rate of more than 160.00 and winning the game by 174 runs with three balls to spare.

172/5 against Mumbai Indians (2022)

GT’s 172/5 against Mumbai Indians ranks 6th among the top 10 GT highest scores in IPL. Mumbai Indians defeated GT in a thrilling five-run victory at Brabourne Stadium, thanks to Daniel Sams, who allowed just three runs in the final inning. MI, after batting first, scored 177/8 in 20 overs. Despite having a partnership of 106 runs between Gill and Saha, GT lost because of Daniel Sam’s heroics.

171/6 against Delhi Capitals (2022)

Next on the list of GT highest scores in IPL history is their 171/6 against Delhi Capitals. GT defeated DC by a score of 14 runs, maintaining their perfect record in competition by winning both of their games. GT successfully battled their way to a score of 171-6, which they then successfully defended against the Delhi Capitals thanks to Lockie Ferguson’s four-wicket haul and Shubman Gill’s excellent 84.

170/7 against Chennai Super Kings (2022)

GT chased down 169 runs against Chennai Super Kings at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.  With just one ball remaining, GT won the game in a heart-pounding climax. Rashid Khan’s appearance late in the game helped the Gujarat Titans win despite his team going 16 for 3 and 87 for 5.

168/5 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (2022)

At Wankhede, Gujarat’s captain, Hardik Pandya, guided Gujarat to a challenging 168 for five against Royal Challengers Bangalore, which ranks as GT’s 9th-highest score in IPL history. Virat Kohli’s 73-run inning in response helped the Challengers easily win the game.

162/7 against Sunrisers Hyderabad (2022)

The Gujarat Titans recorded a competitive 162 for 7 after suffering a top-order collapse in their IPL encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad. 50 runs were scored by Hardik and Abhinav Mahonar collectively to help the Titans surpass the 150-run mark. In response, SRH defeated the opposition by 8 wickets, thanks to an outstanding opening partnership between Abhishek Sharma (42) and Kane Williamson (57).

Truth be told, one of the IPL’s most evenly matched teams is the Gujarat Titans, who have a strong top order and a solid middle order. Some of the GT highest scores in IPL came when they were chasing the game, which talks about their mentality and strength. They have KL Rahul, David Miller, Kane Williamson, and Shubman Gill, who is one of the most reliable batters. Like CSK, GT also has the potential to continue to dominate for a very long time.
