Every team wants to score a maximum number of runs but sometimes they fail miserably to do so that they end up getting a very low score. There could be many reasons for this like the batting unit failed or batsman threw their wicket away. But in most of the cases, this happens because of some extraordinary bowling display the one or two bowlers in the opposition.
The same has been the case in many matches of IPL. There were many matches in which the team’s batting lineup failed miserably. It’s the one record that would not want to have as a team. Here are the top 5 lowest total scored by a team in IPL.

They were bowled out in just 15.2 overs. This match took place on 5 May 2013 in Mumbai. The bowlers of MI ran through the batting lineup of the team from Chennai.
