This is now the highest opening partnership in IPL history, overtaking Gautam Gambhir and Chris Lynn’s 184* for the Kolkata Knight Riders against the Gujarat Lions at Rajkot in 2017.

This is also the highest partnership for Sunrisers Hyderabad for any wicket, overtaking Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson’s unbroken 176-run opening stand against the Delhi Daredevils at the Ferozeshah Kotla in 2018.
