IPL has given cricket fans around the globe many exciting moments to remember. Some of them have been brilliant knocks, exceptional bowling spells, terrific fielding performances, and close encounters.
Some players have great camaraderie, and that is quite visible when they play together. Here is the list of 5 highest partnerships in the history of IPL that have decimated bowling attacks.
- Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers – 229 (RCB vs Gujarat Lions)
Gujarat woke up to the biggest nightmare of their life when two high-quality batsmen Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers destroyed their bowling attack. The duo stitched together a massive 229 runs partnership and set a huge target of 249 runs.
While Kohli scored 109 runs, AB de Villiers raced his way to 129 runs. The sheer dominance of the pair made the Gujarat team up look like a school team. The hot Bangalore conditions did not stop the duo from doing what they did; it was the Gujarat team that faced the double heat. No wonder, Bangalore won the match, and that too comfortably with a massive margin of 144 runs.
2. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers – 215* (RCB vs Mumbai Indians)
The duo just seems to dominate the bowling attacks with ease. This time it was Mumbai Indians bowling attack that was at the receiving end. The array of shots that were on display that day in Mumbai were something out of the world.
After the early departure of Chris Gayle, the duo joined hands to decimate the MI bowling line-up. Virat Kohli scored a stylish 82* while the destructive ABD sailed through 133*. When these two are together at the crease, bowlers can only wish that they somehow play a false shot and get out.
3. Adam Gilchrist and Shaun Marsh – 206 (Kings 11 Punjab vs RCB)
RCB was at the receiving end of the onslaught by the Aussie pair of Adam Gilchrist and Shaun Marsh. Gilchrist, the fiercest wicket-keeper batsman of his time, took a particular liking to the RCB bowlers and scored a super-fast 106 runs of mere 55 balls. His batting partner, Shaun Marsh, remained not out with a classy 79.
The RCB team had destructive batsmen such as Gayle, Kohli, and ABD, but they could not win the match and ended up with a score of just 121.
4. Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli – 204* (RCB vs Delhi Daredevils)
There are not many batting-record lists in which Virat Kohli won’t feature. This time around, he and Gayle decimated the Delhi Daredevils bowling attack with a quick-fire unbroken partnership of 204 runs.
After picking up Dilshan’s wicket early, the Delhi team was delighted; the happiness didn’t last long, as Kohli played a classy knock of 73* while Gayle smashed his way to a blistering 128*. RCB won the match by 21 runs; Zaheer Khan, with 3 wickets, was impressive with the ball.
5. David Warner and Naman Ojha – 189* (Delhi Daredevils vs Deccan Chargers)
David Warner can take down any bowling attack on a given day. This time, Naman Ojha joined the party, and both stitched an unbeaten partnership of 189 runs. The target of 187 set by Deccan Chargers was made to look like a small one, as the duo made a mockery of the target. The early departure of Virender Sehwag made no change in the way David Warner approached the innings.
