Answer: Hyderabad

Ranji Trophy records

Highest team total: The record for the highest team total in Ranji Trophy belongs to Hyderabad. During the 1993/94 Ranji Trophy season, the Kanwaljit Singh-led Hyderabad side posted 944/6d with as many as two players scoring double centuries while a certain Maturi Sridhar hitting a 523-ball 366. The match was eventually drawn.

Hyderabad Andhra 944/6d 1993/94
Tamil Nadu Goa 912/6d 1988/89
Madhya Pradesh Karnataka 912/8d 1945/46

Lowest team total: Interestingly enough, even the record for the lowest team total in Ranji Trophy belongs to Hyderabad. In November 2010, Rajasthan rode on the back of Deepak Chahar’s 8/10 to dismiss Hyderabad for a paltry total of 21 runs. Not even a single batsman could reach the double figures.
