Highest 7th Wicket Partnership in T20 International

It must be appreciated when batsmen score big runs for the 7th wicket in the T20I matches and that important runs change the game completely. It has been seen many times that losers became winners when low order batsmen played great cricket. In T20 format, every wicket partnership keeps importance because two-three big shots can change the statistics of the game. There had been some big runs for the 7th wickets made by low order batsmen in the past record of T20I. The player at the number 8 position is usually a bowler in the playing 11, so can not expect more. Players like Daniel Sams, Michael Yardy, Brett Lee, and Angelo Mathews play at position 8 but have proved that they have the ability to change the game in many cases.

There are 35 times when a team added 50+ runs as a 7th wicket partnership in the history of Twenty20 International. The first 50+ runs of partnership for the seventh wicket was struck by Brad Hogg and Brett Lee against Australia at Johannesburg on 24 Feb 2006. The highest 7th wicket partnership in T20I of 92 runs was made by Marcus Stoinis and Daniel Sams against New Zealand at Dunedin on 25 Feb 2021. India has done this feat three times, the first time MS Dhoni and R Ashwin achieved scored 50+ runs for the 7th wicket partnership against Australia at Sydney on 1 Feb 2012. It is interesting that Pakistan’s lower order has never scored more than 40 runs for the seventh wicket.

Australia has scored maximum times i.e, 6 times 50+ runs for the 7th wicket, this shows the depth of their batting lineup. India has made 3 times, England, New Zealand Bangladesh, West Indies 2 times each, and Sri Lanka single time.
