The 21–run stand was also the highest partnership for an opening wicket at the time of writing and the third highest overall for any wicket. Jos Buttler sits next in the standings with a score of 116 runs against Delhi Capitals on 22 April 2022. This was Buttler’s third ton of the season as he helped Rajasthan Royals (RR) score 222/2 and eventually lead his team to a 16-run win.
Buttler interestingly features three times on the list, scoring 106* and 100 to be part of top 10. Like Buttler, KL Rahul also features multiple times on the list with him scoring unbeaten 103 on two occasions. The list also contains Rajat Patidar, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill, with the latter two players being the only to have not scored hundreds.
