Robin Uthappa scored a gob-smacking 50 off 27 deliveries, and Moeen Ali added 35 off 22 deliveries. A 56-run partnership in only 30 balls gave CSK a solid platform in the match. This is only the fourth-highest Powerplay score in IPL history.

List of Best Power plays in IPL Updated
Kolkata Knight Riders power play score 105/0
In 2017, KKR scored 105 runs in the first six overs of their match against RCB, which is the most runs ever scored in the first six overs of an IPL match. Sunil Narine, who is especially dangerous in the power play, scored 54 runs in 16 balls, which at the time was the fastest half century in IPL history. Chris Lynn, on the other end of the batting order, added 49 runs in 20 balls.
During the power play, the two of them hit a total of eight sixes, which is tied for the highest number of sixes in an IPL power play to date.
Chennai Super Kings power play score 100/2
Back in 2014, CSK scored the most runs during the power play in the IPL. They were also the only team to score 100 or more runs during the power play.
This game was a run-fest from the start, with KXIP scoring 232/6 in 20 overs, which is the seventh-highest total in IPL history. This was mostly thanks to Virender Sehwag’s century, which was the highest score of the game. When CSK came out to try to reach such a big goal, they knew they would need to score a lot in the power play, but they lost a couple of wickets for very little.
But that didn’t stop Suresh Raina from making a great comeback. He scored 87 runs in the power play, which is the most for a single batsman in that period. To put that in perspective, he was the only team on this list of IPL teams with the most runs in the power play to score more runs than the top three teams.
Chennai Super Kings power play score 90/0
CSK is on the list for the second time, but this time Suresh Raina got to relax in the dugout while his teammates tried to beat his record for the most runs scored in the IPL power play.
KXIP pow play score 86/1
The number of runs scored by KXIP against SRH was the fifth most in the IPL during the power play. Things didn’t get off to a good start for KXIP because they lost Sehwag on the second ball of their innings. However, that didn’t stop Wriddhiman Saha from making 52 runs in 23 balls and Manan Vohra from making 29 runs in 11 balls.
KXIP was able to catch up to 205 with 8 balls to spare because of what they did in the power play. As was said above, their 13 fours during the power play are tied for the most fours scored in the IPL during the power play.
