First and Second Highest Partnership in IPL Records on the same day

Can you believe that the first and second highest partnership in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL) records on the very same day. This may be a mere co-incidence but the fact is when Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli came out to bat on May 17, 2012 in a match against Delhi Daredevils (DD) at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi, they were aware of the fact that exactly a year ago on May 17, 2011,  Adam Gilchrist and Shaun Marsh playing for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batted like Gods and put up the highest partnership record of 206 runs for any wicket in the history of IPL. It was also the first 200+ partnership in the IPL.

Exactly one year later, Chiris Gayle and Virat Kohli put up an unbeaten 204 for the 2nd wicket partnership and thus just missing the highest by couple of runs.
