Highest 4th Wicket Partnership in ODI

By Amit Sen on Mar 29, 2021

In ODI, when the top order of a team fails to give a good start then the role of middle-order batsmen become very crucial to add a big total on the scoreboard. When a batsman at the number 5 position makes big runs with his partner after losing 3 wickets is called 4th wicket partnership. The batsman at the number 5 position must be skilled enough and prepared to play with both new and old balls. The 4th wicket partnership consolidates the inning for a big total or in chasing the target. David Miller, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ajay Jadeja, Andrew Symonds, Andrew Flintoff, Yuvraj Singh, Collingwood, Bravo are some of the batsmen who have provided big partnership for 4th wicket under pressure and saved many matches. In ODI, there are 17 times when a team has scored more than 200+ runs as the 4th wicket partnership.

The highest 4th wicket partnership in ODI is unbeaten 275 runs scored by Indian batsmen Mohammad Azharuddin and Ajay Jadeja. Both the batsmen made an unbeaten century in that match after losing 3 quick wickets against Zimbabwe at Cuttack on 9 Apr 1998. After 19 years, the second-highest for the 4th wicket partnership is again struck by Indian batsmen Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni against England at Cuttack on 19 Jan 2017. There are 3 times when India has added 200+ runs for the 4th wicket.

India, England, & Australia have made 200+ runs 3 times each for the 3rd wicket partnership in ODI, then West Indies & South Africa 2 times each and Pakistan single time. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have never been able to achieve this accomplishment. The biggest 4th wicket partnership for Bangladesh is the unbeaten 189 runs made by Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das against West Indies at Taunton on 17 Jun 2019. For Sri Lanka, Roshan Mahanama & Arjuna Ranatunga scored unbeaten 171 runs as the highest 4th wicket partnership in ODI.
