The 8th edition of the T20 World Cup is just 5 months away. It will be held in Australia between September and October. All the teams are preparing for this. But the records suggest that a team that has a strong batting middle order always has a better chance to win. Like the Australian team that won last season, they had Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, and Steve Smith in the middle. Or if we look at the Indian team that won the 1’st season, it had Yuvraj Singh at No. 4, who batted like a dream. This shows the strength of the team.

The batsmen at No. 3 and 4 make an important combo in the batting order, which means the third-wicket partnerships are always vital for the team. Because this can maximize the good start given by the openers and also stop the falling of wickets. And in any high-pressure game in the T20 World Cup, the importance of third-wicket partnerships is higher. So, in this article, we will discuss the top ten highest third wicket partnerships in the T20 World Cup.

  1. Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan – Scored 152 against Sri Lanka in 2014
  2. Herschelle Gibbs and Justin Kemp – Scored 120 against West Indies in 2007
  3. Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell – Scored 118 against Pakistan in 2014
  4. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim – Scored 122 against Australia in 2014
  5. Aftab Ahmed and Mohammad Ashraful – Scored 109 against West Indies in 2007
  6. Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram – Scored 103 against England in 2021
  7. Shane Watson and David Hussey- Scored 98 against Pakistan in 2010
  8. Johnson Charles and Lendl Simmons-Scored against India in 2016

In the game of cricket its all about two batsmen who always bats in partnership, although only one can be a striker at a time. So the partnership between will come to an end someday when one of them retires after achieving an impeccable record.
