Highest 6th Wicket Partnership in T20 World Cup

It is often assumed that when a team loses their first five wickets below hundred, then the team will crumble in the end. Especially in T20 formats, it is extremely ominous to let the lower order batsmen take control of the game. But the unpredictable nature of the cricket often brings in difficult situations for a team from time to time. Who can forget that epic partnership between Aussie batsmen Mike Hussey and Craig White, in which the duo managed to put a strong total of 168 runs on board even when the team languished for 5 for 67 at one stage? This famous and unbeaten 101* run partnership was witnessed during the World T20 Championship 2010 at Bridgetown at a match between Australia and Sri Lanka.

But a mammoth partnership lower down the order can’t be always expected and is utterly unfair. Usually 30-40 runs in quick time is what expected from sixth wicket partnership. Even statistics reveals the same story. In the history of T20 World Cup, only once had the batting pair succeeded in converting their partnership into three-figure-mark. Similarly, the sixth wicket partnership could add 50-run-partnership on only 11 occasions. Most of the time, useful contributions of 25-40 runs have been witnessed so far for the sixth wicket stand.
