Highest 7th Wicket Partnership in T20 World Cup

No matter, how the number of good quality all-rounders a team have, but 7th wicket partnership had never been that much beneficial to teams in T20 World Cup after losing their first six wickets at low score. Historically, a batting duo has succeeded to put 50 plus score only on three occasions for the 7th wicket partnership. It was the awesome pair of Mike Hussey and Steven Smith who succeeded to put forth 74-run partnership for the 7th wicket at a match against Bangladesh in Bridgetown in 2010 Cricket World T20 Cup.

In the World T20 Championship 2007, the unbeaten 45-run partnership between J Mubarak and G Wijekoon (Sri Lanka) was the highest stand for the seventh wicket in that entire tournament. Similarly, in the next edition of the World T20 2009, Sri Lanka again created history with 68* run partnership for the seventh wicket between Kumar Sangakkara and Angelo Mathews against Pakistan at Lord’s. A year later, Mike Hussey & Steve Smith added 74-run for the seventh wicket and is still unbroken for the last 6 years. Ever since, no batting pair could break this record in the subsequent editions of the T20 World Cups.
