Highest 8th Wicket Partnership in ODI

By Amit Sen on Apr 5, 2021

It is not easy to put big runs on the scoreboard for the 8th wicket in the one-day international because players do not get enough balls to play many times. The batter at the 9th position is generally a bowler who can’t perform well usually but in the past record of ODI cricket, there are some players who batted at the number 9 position and have made 100+ runs partnership for the 8th wicket. Players like Andrew Hall, Shane Warne, Iain Butchart, Gary Brent, Daren Sammy have performed nicely with their partner at the 9th position of the batting lineup and added 100+ runs of partnership for the 8th wicket. There are 10 moments a team has scored 100 or more runs as the 8th wicket partnership in the history of ODI cricket. 

The unbeaten 138 runs scored by South Africa batsmen Justin Kemp and Andrew Hall is the highest 8th wicket partnership in ODI. Justin Kemp and Andrew Hall performed very well and added 100, 56 runs for their team. Because of that partnership, South Africa registered a triumph over India by 106 runs. The second-highest partnership for the 8th wicket in ODI is 119 runs scored by Australian Paul Reiffel and Shane Warne against South Africa at Port Elizabeth on 4 Apr 1994.

The very first 100 or more runs for the 8th wicket was scored by Zimbabwe against New Zealand at Hyderabad (Deccan) on 10 Oct 1987 and the team is at no.1 position for putting maximum time 100+ runs on the scoreboard for the 8th wicket in ODI. Zimbabwe 3 times, Pakistan, South Africa, Australia, West Indies, Hongkong, India, Kenya have scored once. For India, MS Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar scored the highest 8th wicket partnership of the unbeaten 100 runs against Sri Lanka at Pallekele on 24 Aug 2017 and that is the highest 8th wicket partnership for India in ODI cricket. 

Now, we expect more great innings from cricketers for the 8th wicket that will break old records and make new ones in the coming future.
