Most T20 leagues following a league-plus knockout format have found that their most successful team isn’t often the one with the best win percentage. The trend, however, changes when we ask which team has won most matches in IPL history – the answer is Mumbai Indians – the five-time title winners.
Mumbai have been the most successful team in the Indian Premier League with five titles to their name, and they enjoy the highest winning percentage in the tournament’s history.

CSK sits second on the list with the most number of wins in IPL matches
While Chennai Super Kings trail Mumbai Indians by one IPL title, the MS Dhoni-led side has been one of the consistent teams in the tournament. CSK have played 195 matches so far with 117 wins in IPL games with a win percentage of 60.56. CSK is also the only team in IPL to reach the playoffs eleven times and the final match on nine occasions. They come to IPL 2022 as the defending champions after they won their fourth title last year.
5-time IPL winners MI has won the most number of IPL matches
Given CSK’s suspension from the Indian Premier League during 2016 and 2017, Mumbai Indians have played more matches than their rivals Chennai Super Kings in IPL. However, Rohit Sharma and Co. have still won just 58.6% of their matches. They have played 217 matches so far and won 125 matches.
KKR holds a unique record in IPL wins
Two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders sit third on the list of IPL match wins with 107 victories and 209 matches, enjoying a win percentage of 52.15. KKR are also the first team and the only IPL side to register 10 consecutive wins in the tournament, a feat they pulled off in the 2014-15 IPL season. KKR are also the only other team apart from CSK and MI to register over 100 wins in IPL. Under Gautam Gambhir‘s captaincy, KKR went on to win the IPL title in 2012 and 2014.
Delhi Capitals rising the ranks with a renewed approach
Before the Delhi team became Delhi Capitals (DC), they were known as Delhi Daredevils (DD) and their record was dismal. DD held the record for the most number of consecutive defeats in one IPL season (9) that took place in the 2014 season. DD are also the team to lose 11 wins in a row, which is the most number of consecutive defeats by any IPL team. However, since 2019, Delhi Capitals have made it to the playoffs every season and currently sit sixth on the list of IPL teams with the most wins.
RCB sit fourth with some dismal outings
Despite being one of the most followed and celebrated teams in the Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore have never won the IPL and have mostly ended their IPL campaigns in the league stages despite boasting of players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle and more in their side. RCB have won 98 matches of the 211 matches that they have played in IPL.
Punjab Kings have the worst win percentage in IPL
Yet another IPL franchise like RCB, who have always had a star-studded squad but could never reach their potential. Unlike Delhi Capitals, changing their name from Kings XI Punjab to Punjab Kings hasn’t helped the side. Not only have PBKS never won the IPL, but they have also managed to reach the playoffs only twice in the last 13 seasons of the competition. Punjab has won just 91 times in 209 IPL games.
The win records of other teams are Sunrisers Hyderabad (50.72%) and Rajasthan Royals (49.42%).
