IPL 2022: Highest partnerships by wicket in IPL history
For any team to win a game in IPL, it is important to have good partnerships in the middle during their innings.
Even when the team is down and out in the game, one good partnership can bring it back in the contest. There have been many memorable matches in which batters have added runs in difficult situations to win games.
The record for the highest opening partnership belongs to Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul who added an unbeaten 210 against KKR in IPL 2022.
De Kock was on fire smashing an unbeaten 140 off just 70 deliveries while the LSG skipper played a perfect foil for him scoring 68 runs off just 51 deliveries.
This was also the highest partnership for any wicket against KKR in the history of IPL.
The record for the highest opening partnership belongs to Jonny Bairstow and David Warner who added 185 runs against RCB in IPL 2019.
Both of them scored tons in this match and helped the team win the clash by a big margin of 118 runs. Bairstow scored 114 runs off 56 balls, while Warner made 100 runs in 55 balls.
Among the second wicket record, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers added 229 runs in IPL 2016, which is also the overall record for the highest partnership for any wicket.
The dashing duo smashed centuries in the game with RCB winning by 144 runs in the end.
