We are back with another Top 5 Asia Cup article and this time it’s the Top 5 highest batting partnerships and we have some good ones to talk about in this list and the batters who were involved in those partnerships are some of the best that World cricket has ever seen. These partnerships are so big that they could have been a part of the Top 5 list on their own.

Since Asia is the home of the best cricket and the batters that come from here are some of the most graceful and best stroke players one has ever seen, it is vital to discuss the history of the Asia Cup when it comes to batters before discussing this list. Therefore, let's look at the Top 5 Highest Batting Partnerships in Asia Cup History.

1. Mohammad Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed (224 Runs)

This combination between these two Pakistani hitters against India in 2012 at Mirpur holds the record for the highest batting partnership in Asia Cup history. They batted together for 36 overs during their opening partnership, scoring stunning hundreds for Pakistan. Mohammad Hafeez scored 105 runs and Nasir Jamshed scored 112 runs during their innings. Unfortunately, Pakistan lost this game because India's Virat Kohli scored an incredible 183 runs to win it for his team. Nevertheless, this is the Asia Cup record for the highest batting partnership.

2. Shoaib Malik and Younis Khan (223 Runs)

Shoaib Malik and Younis Khan, who scored 223 runs together and fell just one run shy of the top score, made up Pakistan's second-best partnership in the 2004 Asia Cup match versus Hong Kong. In this game, Pakistan was batting first and was at a score of 51-2 when these two entered the fray. From this point on, they took on the Hong Kong Bowlers and had every answer, scoring runs all over the field to help Pakistan reach the winning total. In this game, Younis Khan scored 118 runs, and Shoaib Malik added 144 runs. It was a unique collaboration.

3. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane (213 Runs)

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane of India, who scored 213 runs together against Bangladesh in 2014, have the third-best partnership on this list. In this match, India needed to win by 280 runs. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane had a great 213 run partnership in which Ajinkya Rahane scored a respectable 73 runs. However, it was Virat Kohli who stole the show with a stunning 136 run total that gave India the victory. One of the best chasing alliances in history was this one.

4. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan (210 runs)

This batting partnership also occurred during a chase for India, and it did so in 2018 against Pakistan. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan had a ball, scored some magnificent hundreds, and helped India easily win the game. Shikhar Dhawan scored an incredible 114 runs, but Rohit Sharma was there for India all the way to the end and made sure that he ended the game, giving India a 9-wicket victory with more than 10 overs remaining.

5. Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli (205 Runs)

The fifth and last batting combination on this list was formed up of an Indian duo in 2012 when Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli scored 205 runs together against Sri Lanka. Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli both hit fantastic hundreds for India during this second wicket partnership; Gautam scored 100 and Virat scored 108 runs, and India won this match by a margin of 50 runs. At this time, Virat Kohli was beginning to make a name for himself and Gautam Gambhir was playing his best.
