Certain teams have had incredible home records in the previous 15 years because they have succeeded in transforming their home grounds into fortresses. Local support, in addition to familiar home circumstances, has played an important role in making these teams formidable at home. Let us experience the memories of former matches from the world’s most famous cricket leagues and look at the five teams who hold major home records.
Five Teams who hold Major Home Records
|Kolkata Knight Riders
|Chennai Super Kings
Punjab Kings – 33 wins from 59 matches
The Punjab Kings (PBKS) may be the most unpredictable team in the league. Despite playing a lot of cricket in the event, they are the only side that has only qualified for the playoffs twice. Yet, their numbers are enough on their turf. Throughout the previous 15 years, they have called Nagpur’s Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium and Indore’s Holkar Stadium home, as well as Mohali’s Inderjit Singh (IS) Bindra Cricket Stadium and Dharamshala’s Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium.
Thus far, the 2014 runners-up have played 89 matches on their home soil, winning 45 of them. They have won 33 of 59 matches at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. When it comes to their stats at their second home field, HPCA Stadium, they have done well. The Punjab-based team has played nine games at the picturesque venue since 2010. They’ve had six games, winning five of them. With these figures, Punjab supporters should anticipate their squad to put on a strong performance in Dharamsala and Mohali this season.
Rajasthan Royals – 49 wins from 77 matches
Rajasthan Royals (RR) began their IPL career in 2008 when they claimed the title. They came close to winning the title in 2022 but were defeated in the final by the Gujarat Titans. They are looking forward to satisfying their thirst after 15 years. With the reintroduction of the home-and-away format, the franchise’s fans will be overjoyed to see their squad perform in their backyard. Rajasthan has dominated their opponents at their home field, the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, and will want to do so again this season. Of their 77 home games, the Rajasthan Royals have won 49 times. On their home turf in Jaipur, the bowlers from Rajasthan have a stellar record, holding elite teams like the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings to one of their lowest totals.
Kolkata Knight Riders – 54 wins from 91 matches
The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be attempting to win the title for the third time this season. They didn’t look their best in 2022 under Shreyas Iyer. KKR, on the other hand, is relying on its veterans and young players to capture the title, despite their recent failures. In the absence of their normal captain, Iyer, Nitish Rana is leading the squad.
The return of the home-and-away format will delight Knight Riders supporters. Its track record in Kolkata’s famed Eden Gardens is fantastic. In 54 of the 91 matches that Kolkata has played at the site, they have won. Despite winning numerous matches at home, Kolkata’s franchise made history when defending 131 against RCB back in 2017. A combined effort from their bowlers enabled the Knight Riders to stop the Challengers for just 49 runs.
Mumbai Indians – 43 wins from 71 matches
Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL winners, will attempt to make an impression in this year’s game after failing to be outstanding in the previous two seasons. Their brave captain, Rohit Sharma, who has delivered five titles with his exquisite leadership abilities, will try to repeat his feats. With their remarkable record at Wankhede Stadium, the home-and-away format may have a significant impact on MI’s league success. From the 71 matches played at their legendary home site, Wankhede Stadium, they have won 43 games after failing to be outstanding in the previous two seasons.

After last year’s catastrophe, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fans are expecting something good from their team in this year’s tournament.
