Tamil Thalaivas hold the record for registering the highest team score in Pro Kabaddi League history. The Thalaivas did so against Bengal Warriors in match 126 of PKL Season 10.

With both sides out of the playoffs reckoning at the stage, the Thalaivas decided to go all out and put the Warriors to the sword by registering a 74-37 victory - the highest team score in a PKL match.

Narender and Vishal Chahal proved to be too much to contain for the Warriors as the Thalaivas' raiding duo combined for a whopping 35 raid points themselves. Their effort is the first and only time a PKL team has broken the 70-point margin in a match.  

Previously, Patna Pirates held the record for registering the highest team score in Pro Kabaddi and they had done so twice. 

The three-time champions won 69-30 against Haryana Steelers in Eliminator 2 of Pro Kabaddi Season 5 and later equalled their own record in Season 7 against Bengal Warriors during the league stage. 

Pardeep Narwal was the top scorer for the team in both instances, recording 34 and 36 points against Haryana Steelers and Bengal Warriors respectively. 

The Pirates also have the fourth-highest team total in Pro Kabaddi. Led by Rohit Kumar’s 16 points, Patna Pirates registered a 67-34 win over Dabang Delhi K.C. in match 45 of Pro Kabaddi Season 3 to claim the honour. 

Captain Rohit features heavily again for the fifth-highest team total in Pro Kabaddi but on this occasion donning Bengaluru Bulls colours. The Bulls thrashed U.P. Yoddha 64-24 in match 51 of Pro Kabaddi Season 5 and registered a 40-point win - the highest in Pro Kabaddi history. Rohit Kumar singlehandedly accounted for 32 of those points. 

Bengaluru Bulls feature again in sixth spot in the list for the highest total in Pro Kabaddi courtesy of their comprehensive 61-22 win over Dabang Delhi K.C. in Season 8. The win margin of 39 points is the second-biggest victory margin in Pro Kabaddi. Pawan Sehrawat led from the front in this match by scoring 27 raid points. 

Telugu Titans’ 60-24 win over Puneri Paltan in Season 1 was the first instance that a Pro Kabaddi team breached the 60-point mark. 

Meanwhile, Patna Pirates’ 55-38 win over Gujarat Giants in Season 5 is the highest team score in a Pro Kabaddi final.
