Additionally, Glenn Maxwell & Pat Cummins’ 202* runs vs Afghanistan, Gus Atkinson & Mark Wood’s 70 runs vs South Africa, and Keshav Maharaj & Tabraiz Shamsi’s 11* runs vs Pakistan were notable partnerships.

These collaborations highlight the dominance of batting in the recent World Cup, with records being broken and close finishes adding to the excitement of the tournament.
