Highest Partnership in IPL 2021: In the 2012 IPL match between Delhi Daredevils and RCB, Delhi had a good start, winning the toss and deciding to bowl first, but was dismissed by opener Tillakaratne Dilshan in the third round with 11 runs on the board. That was the last joy the Delhi Daredevil bowlers experienced during the match. Chris Gayle, who was at the height of his batting prowess, and 23-year-old Virat Kohli attacked the DD bowlers to take their impressive 215 for 1. Gayle went at the bowlers with hammer and tongs, hitting 128 off 62 balls.
It was the highest partnership of a Kookaburra wicket and the highest opening partnership in IPL history. I think in the last game we had some good balls but we didn’t hit well. Watto [Shane Watson] was a big plus for us today. The great thing is that he runs for us and is a great player for us.
When Samson dismissed Jadeja for the 14th time, it did not affect Pant as he responded with six for four and increased the required score with a run-a-ball. But he fell three runs short of expectations and became the IPL’s youngest captain.
After RCB Chris Gayle lost in the fourth round with 19 runs on the board and was unable to gain a foothold in the match, they wanted to shake off the early overs. Enter AB Villiers and things turned around.
You got a feeling for the boy from Karnataka when he scored 223 points but ended up on the losing side after being chased by the master and talented Sanju Samson, the man of the match. With a record score of 226 in the second inning, the RR boys had the highest total score for a chasing team in the IPL.

In the 2011 edition of the IPL two Australian left-handers put on a great show with the bat for the RCB. Gilchrist made a brilliant 105 off 55 balls, including eight fours and nine sixes. Marsh scored 79 runs off 49 balls in the fast-track. Despite losing Paul Valthaty in the innings, they boasted a mammoth total of 232.7 sewing up a memorable partnership of 206 runs. The RCB managed 121 runs in a famous 111-run victory over the defending champion.
Dilshan, on the other hand, who had a good view of the park and witnessed Gayles dominate the play, tried to hit him as hard as possible. Still, he slowed down a bit and ended up scoring 36 off 33 balls. The pair put on 167 runs in 13.4 overs and ended up on 263. Defeated, PWI could not turn the bat around and lost the game with a mammoth run of 130 strokes.
Adam Gilchrist hit a superlative century and Shaun Marsh struck brilliantly as KP RCB batted in a way at the beautiful Dharamshala Stadium. Gilchrist scored 106 / 55 and Marsh collected 79 / 55 while playing for Punjab as the Australian pair put on the highest T20 partnership ever, scoring a massive 206 runs for the second wicket. It is the highest partnership of runs in IPL.
The first three wickets of the record 150 stand is the highest partnership by wickets. The seventh wicket partnership is the century stand achieved in the IPL. The eighth-century partnership is also the eighth-wicket partnership of all time.
In the IPL in 2016, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers had a record-breaking partnership of 229 runs off 97 balls. In that innings Kohli scored 109 runs from 55 balls, while de Villier scored 129 runs from 52 balls.
RCB scored the most runs in a match with an astonishing score of 263 / 5 against PWI in 2013, in the same match Gayle scored his record score of the match and IPL the highest number of 6s in an inning. It was also the second-highest innings total by a team in a T20 match. Total catches: 102 catches by batsman Suresh Raina.

The opening duo turned the mammoth goal into an absolute farce. Lynn finished with a devastating 93 off 41 balls, while Gambhir remained unbeaten on 76. They smashed the ball into all parts of the ground and finished the chase in just 14.5 overs.
Lasith Malinga, Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa dominate the wicketkeeping rankings, while MS Dhoni, Karthiks and Uthappa are among the top five players with the most stumps and most catches respectively. Lasith holds the record for most wickets taken (170) and shares the highest number of four-wicket hauls with Sunil Narine (7).
The destructive duo hit the ball unchallenged against a bowling lineup consisting of Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Colin Grandhomme and debutant Prayas Barman, who made 56 runs from his quota in four overs. After a terrific start, they went for the bowlers, but did not let them dominate and celebrated a comeback. They conceded 59 runs on the powerplay. Bairstow and Warner had no chance against those bowlers as they were the only bowlers to approach the milestone.
Bairstow went to the Hyderabad franchise for Rs 22 crore. He has been in good form with consistent performances in the T10 league. KP knew the kind of form Bairstow showed in IPL 2019 and they walked into the ropes with him by his side.
