Highest partnerships in IPL history

The IPL 2024 is just around the corner and as near as it gets, fans from all around the world are getting excited to witness some of the best performances in cricket, be it the record of sixes or some amazing partnerships. In cricket, especially T20 like the IPL, partnerships are essential, helping them score a lot of runs, making it tough for the other team to catch up! Let’s look at the top 5 times teammates in the IPL have scored the most runs together.

 

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

These two superstars hold the record for the highest partnership ever in the IPL! In 2016, they scored a whopping 229 runs off just 96 balls together against the Gujarat Lions in match 44 of IPL. Both Kohli and de Villiers even scored over 100 runs each! Kohli finished on 109 off 55 balls while de Villers finished 129 off 52 balls. Their dominant batting display left the Gujarat bowlers with no chance, as RCB made a total of 248 runs in the match.

 

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

Kohli and de Villiers Again! They come in second too! In IPL 2015, they partnered again for a massive 215 runs in just 105 balls against the Mumbai Indians. AB de Villiers made 133 runs in only 59 deliveries including 19 fours and 4 sixes while Virat smashed 82 runs off 50 balls. This incredible knock by Kohli and de Villiers set up a comfortable win for RCB by 39 runs as RCB piled on 235/1.

 

Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul (Lucknow Super Giants)

This opening pair for the Lucknow Super Giants made a huge noise in 2022, scoring crazy runs together against the Kolkata Knight Riders! De Kock scored an unbeaten 140 off 70 balls and captain Rahul scored 68 not out from 51 balls Their opening partnership laid the foundation for a big total which became the third-best in the history of IPL. LSG won that match by 2 runs, scoring 210/0.

 

Adam Gilchrist and Shaun Marsh (Kings XI Punjab)

Back in 2011, these two batsmen for Kings XI Punjab put on a show against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Adam Gilchrist scored a century and together with Shaun Marsh, they made 206 runs in 96 balls! Gilchrist hit 106 runs off 55 balls and Shaun Marsh made 79 runs in 49 balls. Their explosive batting took the game away from RCB early on, and Punjab cruised to a dominant victory, making 232/2.

 

Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

Another Royal Challengers Bangalore pair on the list! In 2012, Kohli and the big-hitting Chris Gayle smashed 204 runs together in only 110 balls against the Delhi Daredevils (Now Delhi Capitals). This brutal batting display by Gayle’s 128 runs in 62 deliveries and Kohli’s 73 runs of 53 balls, helped RCB to declare 215/1, ensuring an easy win by 21 runs.

Few more pairs in the IPL have been consistently putting up impressive partnerships. With their talent and understanding, it’s certainly not out of the question that one of these pairs could challenge the record for the highest partnership in IPL history in the coming seasons!

    Last year, Mohammed Siraj was the star bowler of the IPL. He dominated the first six overs of innings, taking wickets and barely giving away any runs. This season, however, things have gone terribly wrong for Siraj. In 2023, Siraj was the second-highest wicket-taker in the powerplay, just behind Mohammed Shami. He was so good that his bowling average was just under 6 runs per over
