Highest 4th Wicket Partnership in T20 International

There are many T20 International matches where a team loses the top 3 batsmen very soon and come under pressure but thanks to the middle order that has the ability to bring back the team into the game. A cricket team playing a T20I match must have batsmen in the middle order that can handle any situation and have the skill to counterattack. It is not easy to perform well when a player knows that he does not have enough time to settle down in the shortest format of cricket. He has to take charge in any situation in order to maintain the run rate according to the conditions. Players like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Shoaib Malik, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokers have fought back many times and built huge partnerships for their team. 

Pakistan batsmen have recorded the maximum number of 100+ runs partnership for the 4th wicket in the T20 International, they have scored 4 times followed by New Zealand 3 times, England 3 times, South Africa 3 times, India 2 times, Bangladesh and Australia single time. A team like U.A.E has also done this feat twice, first scored by Shaiman Anwar and Rameez Shahzad against P.N.G at Abu Dhabi on 14 Apr 2017 and the second time against the same opposition on 14 Apr 2017.

It will be exciting to watch more records of 100+ runs by the batsmen in the middle order in the upcoming time.

There are 23+ moments when the team scored 100+ runs for the 4th wicket in the history of T20 International matches. The first 4th wicket partnership of 100+ runs was added by David Warner and Glen Maxwell against South Africa at Johannesburg where Australia lost the first three wickets at 3 runs only while chasing a big target of 205 runs. But the 4th wicket partnership of 161 runs between Maxwell and Warner turned the match and registered a victory on 6 Mar 2016. For India, the first partnership of 100+ runs for the 4th wicket was struck by M S Dhoni and K L Rahul against West Indies at Lauderhill on 27 Aug 2016. K L Rahul played an awesome inning of unbeaten 110 runs while chasing a big target of 246 runs. It is interesting that West Indies has never been up to that level, the highest 4th wicket partnership in T20I for West Indies is unbeaten 87 runs between D Bravo and N Pooran against India at Chennai on 11 Nov 2018.
