Highest 5th Wicket Partnership in T20 World Cup

Fifth wicket partnership is extremely crucial. But not all teams are luckier enough to have the liberty of a solid lower middle order batsman who can play well despite losing first four wickets cheaply. Usually that void is filled by a quality all-rounder down the batting order. However, it is not that much easy to score runs and build a good partnership with tail-enders in shorter format. In T20 cricket, every batsman is in hurry to score pile of runs and it’s extremely difficult to hit more runs on board when the top order failed.

In the history of T20 World Cup, there is only one instance when a batting duo successfully scored a hundred-run-partnership for the fifth wicket. Pakistani batsmen Misbah-Ul-haq and Shoaib Maillik are the only two batsmen who have put more than 100 run stand for the fifth wicket in T20 format. They got it in the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup 2007 but since then there is no hundred run partnership ever registered for the fifth wicket in the subsequent editions of the World T20 Championships.
