In this series, your cricket-related queries will be answered by our expert statistician

Could you please provide similar details for Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, as you had done for MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina while batting together in IPL? – Arun Venkat on Facebook

The first time they batted together for RCB was against Deccan Chargers at Hyderabad on 14 April, 2011. They added just two runs for the fourth wicket while taking the score from 27/3 to 29/4, when AB was dismissed for a duck! RCB went on to lose the game by 33 runs. And the last time they batted together was against Rajasthan Royals at Abu Dhabi recently on 3 October 2020, when they were involved in an unbeaten 34 runs partnership for the third wicket. Overall, since 2011, their partnership aggregate currently stands at 2917 runs in 70 innings they have batted together for a very healthy average of 44.20 runs per innings. They have been involved in nine 100+ partnerships, with their 229 against Gujarat Lions at Bangalore on 14 May 2016 being their best effort, when their team won by a huge margin of 144 runs. They have also been involved in ten other partnerships of fifties (50 to 99). Their top partnerships in IPL cricket is listed below:

He achieved this feat during his knock of 106 runs for Kings XI Punjab against Rajasthan Royals at Sharjah on September 27, 2020. However, in terms of innings Virat Kohli has this record, by scoring his maiden IPL century in his 120th innings in April 2016. Agarwal is at number four in the list. Check out the list below.

Is Devdutt Padikkal’s 56 against SRH one of the highest by a player on IPL debut? – Ajay Awasthi on Twitter

The distinction of scoring a century in their IPL debut goes to KKR’s Brendon McCullum and CSK’s Mike Hussey. They both did so in the first-two matches of the inaugural IPL season in 2008. Since then several batsmen have managed to make a fifty on their IPL debut. However, among Indian debutants, Padikkal’s 56 is the third best after Rajasthan’s Swapil Asnodkar (60) and Delhi’s Gautam Gambhir (58*) – both in 2008.
