    Greatest Partnerships?

    In wake of the 624 run stand for the sri lankans, this prompted me to asking you to name some other fantastic partnerships.... Discuss

    Nasser Hussain and Graham Thorpes 288 run partnership at Edgbaston against the Aussies in '97 was a beauty.

    Yousuf & Younis's in the 3rd Test wasn't half bad. Must be one of the best in a losing cause.

    Speaking of which, Lee & Kasprowicz in the 2nd Ashes Test last year might not have been the prettiest, but it was certainly one of the gamest last wicket partnerships I've seen. Deserved to win it really, but I'm eternally glad they didn't!

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I liked the Tresco/Strauss one at Jo'burg a couple of years back. Think they set an opening record for England v SA or some such, was when Strauss could do absolutely nothing wrong and averaged more than old man Pollock

    The highest partnership in a lost Test.

    The partnership between the Waughs in the 4th test against the West Indies in 1995. Took the score from 3/73 to 4/304 with the series on the line against a fearsome attack.

    Just to be a little different, Martyn/Gillespie Chennai 2004 was a good'un.

    Flintoff/Simon Jones at Edgbaston too.
