Highest 9th Wicket Partnership in T20 International

The batsman at the number 10 position is usually a bowler and it’s not an easy task for him to make big runs. But T20I is the game of quick runs where one or two big shots can switch the game. So, the 9th wicket player can also contribute and collect some crucial runs for his team. Players like Jerome Taylor, Saeed Ajmal, Lutho Sipamla, Wahab Riaz, Dilhara Fernando, Zaheer Khan, and many more, are generally number 10 position players but they have supported nicely their partner and contributed to the victory. The highest 9th wicket partnership in T20 international is 72* runs made by Romario Shepherd and Akeal Hosein against England at Bridgetwon on 23 Jan 2022.

It is interesting to know that there are 3 times when a team has scored more than 50+ partnership for the 9th wicket in the history of T20 International. The first 50+ runs for the 9th wicket were made by Pakistani batsmen, Sohail Tanvir & Saeed Ajmal against Sri Lanka on 13 Dec 2013. There are three teams, Pakistan, West Indies, and South Africa have made 50+ runs for the 9th wicket once in the past record of T20I. The highest 9th wicket partnership for India in T20I is 36 runs added by Rohit Sharma and Zaheer Khan against Australia at Bridgetown on 7 May 2010.

The highest runs scored by New Zealand for the 9th wicket are unbeaten 38 runs by Mitchell Santner and Tim Southee against India at Delhi on 1 Nov 2017. For Bangladesh, Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Abu Hider scored 33 runs as the highest 9th wicket partnership in T20I.
