Highest partnerships in IPL history

It is essential for any team playing in the Indian Premier League to have strong partnerships in the middle of their innings if they want to be successful. Even if the team is on its last legs and about to be eliminated from the competition, one strong relationship can pull it back in. There have been a lot of matches that will live long in people's memories because batters added runs in difficult situations to win games. In the following paragraphs, we will provide a list of the highest partnership in IPL that have scored the most runs for each wicket.

The record for the highest opening partnership now belongs to Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul, who scored 210 runs without losing a wicket during their match against KKR in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League. Although De Kock was on a roll, slamming an undefeated 140 off of just 70 deliveries, the LSG skipper played the perfect foil for him by scoring 68 runs off of just 51 deliveries. Moreover, this was the biggest partnership for any wicket in the history of the Indian Premier League that was scored against KKR.

During the 2016 season of the Indian Premier League,

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers set a new record for the highest partnership in IPL history on any wicket by scoring 229 runs together. This was also a new record for the second wicket record. The dynamic combination both scored century during the game, which resulted in a victory for RCB by 144 runs in the end.

Cameron White and Kumar Sangakkara combined for 157 runs during a game of the Indian Premier League in 2012 to set a new record for the most runs scored by a third-wicket partnership. The Deccan Chargers were victorious over the Pune squad by a margin of 13 runs after the Deccan Chargers' first innings score of 186/4.

During the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team's final league encounter of the 2019 Indian Premier League, Shimron Hetmyer and Gurkeerat Singh Maan contributed to a partnership that scored 144 runs for the fourth wicket, which assisted the team in chasing the target of 176 runs. Hetmyer smashed 75 runs off 47 balls, including four fours and six sixes, as part of his impressive performance.

After an early collapse, Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan put together a partnership that scored 134 runs for the fifth wicket, which brought the team's total to 158/4 in 20 overs. Nevertheless, this score was not sufficient as they were defeated by Gujarat Lions by five wickets with twelve balls remaining in the match.

An outstanding partnership between Ambati Rayudu and Kieron Pollard for the sixth wicket helped the MI squad to a remarkable victory over RCB during their match in the 2012 edition of the Indian Premier League. This victory was by five wickets. MI had lost their first five wickets for only 51 runs out of a total of 172 that they needed to win, but this duo scored 122 runs to assure that the club would win.

In the 2019 Indian Premier League match against Punjab,

Jagadeesha Suchith and Harbhajan Singh contributed 100 runs together, setting a new record for the seventh wicket in the process. Harbhajan scored a fifty off of 19 balls, however his team was unable to reach the mark they needed to in order to win the chase. It is understandable that the other partnerships for the 8th, 9th, and 10th wickets have all occurred in a losing cause because it becomes tough to win when the lower order has spent so much time on the crease. The other partnerships for the 8th, 9th, and 10th wickets have all come in a losing cause. Only in the most recent season were new records set for the last two wickets, which are included in this list.
