Highest 7th Wicket Partnership in ODI

By Amit Sen on Mar 29, 2021

In the ODI match of cricket, the batsman positioned at the number 8 is mostly a bowler or sometimes maybe an all-rounder who can ball and bat as well. A team should not expect much more from the 7th wicket batsman but there are many times when the number 8 batsman performed well and helped the team in critical conditions. Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Heath Streak, Mohammad Saifuddin, Upul Chandana, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja are examples of such batsman who have batted well at the number 8 position in the past. When a team scores 100 runs or more for the 7th wicket then it helps the team a lot. There are 50 times when any team has added 100+ runs for the 7th wicket partnership in the history of ODI.

The highest 7th wicket partnership in ODI is 177 runs scored by Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid that helped England to put a big total of 408 runs on the scoreboard against New Zealand at Birmingham on 9 Jun 2015. The second highest 7th wicket partnership in ODI is 138 runs added by England batsmen Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes against Sri Lanka at Nottingham on 21 Jun 2016.

For India, the highest 7th wicket partnership is the unbeaten 125 runs made by Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ravichandran Ashwin against Pakistan at Chennai on 30 Dec 2012. The first 7th wicket partnership of 100 runs for India was scored by Sourav Ganguly and Sunil Joshi against Australia at Colombo (SSC) on 6 Sep 1996. The Indian team has scored 100+ runs 4 times for the 7th wicket in the past record of ODI, then England 7 times, Pakistan & Sri Lanka 5 times each, New Zealand 4 times, Australia & South Africa 3 times each, Bangladesh 2 times have achieved this feat.
