IPL often has a high score for chase compared to other T20 matches, the team always tries to hit the highest target. We see a lot of partnerships that have a high number of runs. Here are the three highest partnerships in the history of IPL.
Highest Partnerships in IPL 2016: Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers – 229 runs in 96 balls
Virat Kohli and Ab de Villiers have always been known as a deadly duo. Initially, in RCB, this duo used to score a high number of runs consistently throughout the series. Virat Kohli is definitely the number one batsman in the world and AB de Villiers is also a highly skilled player. This duo has scored the partnership higher than 200 multiple times. In the 2016 IPL season, they scored 229 runs in just 96 balls against Gujarat. The target was one of the highest in the entire IPL history. After Chris Gayle’s wicket, the duo skyrocketed the entire team’s score, and Gujarat clearly understood the fact that they had no chance in the chase. Virat Kohli finished the match with a score of 109 runs in 55 balls and AB de Villiers Scored 129 off 52 balls. This is one of the highest team scores in IPL.
Highest Partnerships in IPL 2015: Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers – 215 runs in 105 balls
It is a mere coincidence that both of these highest partnership scores started with the wicket of Chris Gayle. After the wicket of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, and AB de Villiers once again achieved a score of 215 runs. Virat Kohli scored 83 runs from 50 balls and AB de Villiers scored a fabulous 133 runs in just 59 balls.

Despite their number of failures, they have always performed the best in every single season of IPL. We might even have this question how many times has RCB won IPL? The answer is none. Even though the team has shown consistent performance, that effort was not reflected in the number of titles they have won.
