The Indian Premier League (IPL) has seen plenty of match-deciding partnerships over the years and some have been defined among the best in T20 cricket. The list of highest partnership in IPL by wickets is dominated by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) players, especially their skipper Virat Kohli and former swashbuckling opener Chris Gayle.
This list mostly features batting-heavy sides like the Mumbai Indians (MI), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and RCB. The highest partnership in ipl for any wicket was recorded by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers of 229 runs against Gujarat Lions at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on 14 May 2016. The duo broke their own record of an unbeaten 215-run partnership against MI.
