As we know that first derivative of the wavefunction is discontinuous when the potential is infinity. Is there any practical potential for which first derivative of wavefunction is continuous?

Yes. As one example, for a one-dimensional quantum harmonic oscillator, all derivatives of the wavefunction are everywhere continuous.
