CPL Records and Statistics: Which players have recorded the highest partnership in the history of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL)?
The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has seen several partnerships that have changed the course of history and helped several teams in making a mark for themselves on the points score. In T20 leagues, the importance of a good partnership is higher than in any other format. If the partnership is with the opening batsmen, then it can be even better for the team. If two batters start a good partnership, then it can be very difficult for the bowlers to stop the number of runs that they are making collectively. And every team and member in the audience wishes for a good partnership on the crease. The CPL has itself given a lot of memorable moments to the cricket fans and they are all set to repeat the same every year-round.
