Highest Partnerships in ODIs in 2017; Men In Blue Feature For A Dozen Times

Highest Partnerships in ODI’s in 2017: Men In Blue Feature For A Dozen Times

In cricket, we have seen some splendid individual performances which have taken our expectations to another level. Over the years, the batsmen have managed to lift their games so much that, they have dominated the game.

Even with such amazing individual performances, cricket is still a team game where you need to work together to get the desired results on a consistent basis.

It is often said that you hunt in pairs, either while batting or while bowling and this year we have certainly seen some of the best partnerships (in the batting department) where a pair has single-handedly taken the match away from the opposition.

From, David Warner and Travis Head’s brilliant opening stand of 284 runs against Pakistan to MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh turning the clock back with a scintillating 256 runs partnership in Cuttack, where the two explosive batsmen took English bowlers to the cleaners.

Recently, blown away by the Virat Kohli-led side (9-0), Sri Lanka too surprisingly managed a double hundred opening stand against Zimbabwe in the home series in which they lost to the visitors (3-2) creating trouble for themselves for the qualifications for the next World Cup.

The number one Test team, India have managed to make their mark in limited overs format, as in this list of the highest run partnerships, different Indian pairs feature for a dozen times.
