The batting of their captain Faf du Plessis and fellow opener Virat Kohli has been a major contributor behind RCB’s stupendous performance in IPL 2023. The pairing of Virat and Faf have crossed paths on their team’s ship many times while serving amazingly this season. In the last match of the league phase against Gujarat Titans both gave a great start to the team. While opening in this match, both started fast and added 67 runs for the first wicket. With this, both of them also made a great record to their name.

The pairing of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis have added 939 runs together in 14 games this season. The pair also hold the record for the most runs added for any wicket in a season. This was the eighth time the pair had partnered with Fifty Plus this season. In terms of the highest Fifty Plus partnership by a couple in a season, they’ve both come out on top. The special thing is that both have also destroyed their own records.

Highest partnership over 50 in an IPL season

  • 8 – Virat Kohli-Faf du Plessis (RCB, 2023)
  • 7 – Virat Kohli-AB de Villiers (RCB, 2016)
  • 7 – Faf du Plessis-Ruturaj Gaikwad (CSK, 2021)
  • 7 – Jonny Bairstow-David Warner (SRH, 2019)

The individual performance of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis in IPL 2023 has also been very good. Faf is the top scorer of the season with 8 fifties and the Orange Cap is his name. At the same time, Virat Kohli completed his fifty in this match and scored his seventh half-century. In the last match, a brilliant century came off his bat as well. This season, the excellent batting of both has been reminiscent of the 2016 season in which the duo of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers made a lot of noise together.
