    harsh seems to have the clauses primed for 8 participants, tbh. Having looked at the candidates for this clause, I know I'd be absolutely fuming if I were placed below 6th this round.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Yeah, it is as G.I. said. The last picks could get ugly.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    That's cool. I'll be happy to jump in if anyone bails out.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Isn't 248 runs more than 75 runs or am I missing something?

    Partnership was 133, Zaheer made 75. Assuming no extras, Sachin cannot have made more than 58 in the time Zaheer was at the crease.

    From what I understood, it was about the 10th wicket partnership contribution and not the whole innings score, and in that partnership Zaheer scored 75 and Sachin scored 57. Was really hoping to get him.

    Will wait harsh to clear it up before I pick.

    'zactly. Looking at the commentary he was at 191* when Zaheer came in, so he was the lower-scoring partner in that partnership.

    The partnership was 133 runs. Zaheer scored 75 of those, making Tendulkar the junior partner.

    If everyone agrees that it was partnership contribution and not the innings total score, should I go ahead with my pick?
