Highest Partnership in T20 International History

Highest Partnership in T20 International History - Cricfacts.com

Cricket is a game where the partnership between the two batsmen plays a very important role, and every team, whether it is a one-day international, T20 international, or a test match is wanting some big partnerships that will put a high total on the scoreboard.

There is no doubt that when a team has some big partnerships in the middle, they are releasing pressure from the other upcoming batsmen and allowing them to play their game more freely. There have been only three occurrences in the history of T20 Internationals in which a team has formed a partnership that has gone beyond 200 runs.

Hazratullah Zazai and Usman Ghani of Afghanistan have made the highest partnership in the history of T20I cricket, which stands at 236 runs made against Ireland at Dehradun on 23 February 2019. The Afghanistan opener, Hazratullah Zazai, played a brilliant inning along the way by scoring a massive 162 runs from just 62 balls at a strike rate of 261.29 from just 62 balls.

The partnership between the two players contributed to Afghanistan scoring a very high total on the scoreboard in the form of 278 runs.

On 7 May 2010, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul built the highest partnership between the two Indian players, scoring 165 runs against Sri Lanka at Bridgetown, which was a record for the country. With just 43 balls to his name, Rohit Sharma struck a century and added 118 runs to his score.

There have been only three teams with a score of 200 or more as a partnership, and they are Afghanistan, Australia, and the Scottish team. There was a significant difference between Afghanistan’s total of 223 runs and Australia’s total of 192 runs at number two, and Scotland’s total of 200 runs at number three.
