We all can agree that the game has been slipping in favor of the batters in the past few years. The shorter boundaries and the fielding restrictions have helped their cause. There is no place to hide if you are a bowler. If you miss your mark, you are destined to go on a journey.

We have seen plenty of batting records being broken in the last few seasons. The batters generally enjoy playing on placid surfaces in India and the records suggest the same. Here is a look at the top six highest team totals in the IPL.
