All teams expect their top order to give a good start. If they fail then it is the turn of the middle order to develop a partnership and then increase the scoring rate. There have instances when even small partnership lower down the wicket also help in reaching a good target or chase down one. Let us take a look at the highest partnerships on every wicket in this season of Indian Premier League –
