The Australian pair batted 116 balls which is the longest stand in T20I cricket and the 2nd longest in the T20I format across Men’s and Women’s cricket. South Africa’s Women opening pair Lizelle Lee and Dane van Niekerk batted 120 overs against Pakistan in the WT20 2014 game sharing an unbeaten 163-run stand. The 223-run partnership between Finch and D’Arcy is also the all-time highest opening partnership in the Twenty20 history.
The Australian pair broke the record held by Kamran Akmal and Salman Butt with an unbeaten 209 partnership in the last year’s Domestic T20 Cup game. The partnership of 223 by Finch and D’Arcy is the 2nd biggest for any wicket in the T20 cricket. The RCB pair of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers shared 228 runs for the 2nd wicket in the 2016 IPL against Gujarat Lions bettering their unbeaten 215-run stand against Mumbai Indians in 2015.
