Star batters Virat Kohli and KL Rahul recorded the highest partnership in the Asia Cup history during India’s clash against arch-rival Pakistan at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Monday. The duo achieved the landmark in a Super Four clash. Rahul and Kohli slaughtered Pakistan bowlers as they stitched up an unbeaten 233-run partnership in 194 deliveries.
The duo surpassed Pakistan’s Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Hafeez, who held the record with their 224-run partnership against India in 2012.
The Indian pair got off to a slow start before launching their assault. They helped India post a challenging 356/2 against Babar Azam-led Pakistan.
Captain Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill’s half-centuries laid the foundation for India, while the unbeaten 233-run partnership between Kohli and Rahul added the icing on the cake as the former skipper finished the innings in style with a maximum.
Kohli finished his innings with an unbeaten 122, which came from 94 deliveries, while Rahul smashed a fiery 111 of 106 balls.
