Highest 2nd Wicket Partnership in T20 International

T20 international is the match of 20 overs where things get change very quickly at any time and the game can be turned anytime. Sometimes a team gets a good start and many times it fails. The number 3 batsman of any cricket team plays a key role because he may need to face a new ball if a team loses its first wicket very early. The batsman at the number 3 position should be the maestro with the new ball to play under pressure and maintain the run rate, especially in the Powerplay. When a team builds up a good partnership for the 2nd wicket then it gives strength and opportunity to the middle order batsmen to play their game freely. In the past record of T20 International matches, there are 54 times when the 2nd wicket partnership crosses the 100 runs.

The Highest 2nd wicket partnership in T20I is 176 runs which was made by Indian Pair Sanju Samsun and Deepak Hooda against Ireland in Ireland on 28th June 2022. India won the toss and decided to bat first.

The second highest 2nd wicket partnership in T20 International of unbeaten 167 runs was built by JC Buttler and DJ Malan against South Africa at Cape Town on 1 Dec 2020.

The third highest was made by Sri Lanka on 7 May 2010. DPMD Jayawardene and KC Sangakkara of Sri Lanka added 166 runs for the second wicket partnership against West Indies Bridgetown.

For India, the first 100+ runs were secured by R Sharma and V Kohli as the 2nd wicket partnership in T20I against West Indies at Dhaka on 23 Mar 2014. The Indian team had made 8 times 100+ runs as a second-wicket partnership in the history of T20I. The best and highest 2nd wicket partnership of 138 runs was built by R Sharma and V Kohli in the T20I against South Africa. Rohit Sharma struck a century in that match at Dharamsala on 2 Oct 2015. The most recent 2nd wicket partnership of 131 runs was scored by MJ Guptill and KS Williamson of New Zealand against Australia on 25 Feb 2021. 

Indian batting pairs have the record of making the highest 9 times 100+ 2nd wicket partnership in T20 Internation followed by Pakistan 6 times, South Africa 5 times, England 4 times, Sri Lanka 4 times, New Zealand 3 times, Australia 2 times, and West Indies 2 times. There are more records to be made and 200+ can be seen in the future as a second-wicket partnership.
