    Best Current Partnerships

    What two guys at the crease together are the best for each time? Just saw a tweet that McCullum called Williamson/Taylor the best 3/4 punch in the world, and it got me thinking of what other quality pairings we get right now.


    Amla + AB and Rahim + Shakib are two international ones that come to mind.


    Tests (most runs, and have batted together in the last year)


    Misbah, Younis Khan 3153 @ 73.32
    Taylor, Williamson 2774 @ 59.02
    Azhar Ali, Younis Khan 2585 @ 56.19
    Amla, AB 2515 @ 53.51
    Pujara, Vijay 2429 @ 67.47
    Kayes, Tamim 2275 @ 48.40
    Rahim, Shakib 2124 @ 45.19
    Kohli, Rahane 1983 @ 63.96
    Asad Shafiq, Misbah 1953 @ 50.07
    Cook, Root 1671 @ 42.84
    Kohli, Pujara 1661 @ 53.58

    ODIs (most runs, and have batted together in the last year)

    Dhoni, Yuvraj 3084 @ 52.27
    Amla, QDK 2990 @ 45.30
    Amla, AB 2950 @ 75.64
    Kohli, Rohit 2567 @ 53.47
    Dhawan, Rohit 2495 @ 45.36
    Taylor, Williamson 2427 @ 56.44
    AB, JP 2411 @ 53.37
    Rahim, Shakib 2154 @ 37.78
    Guptill, Williamson 2121 @ 45.12
    Kayes, Tamim 1826 @ 31.48 Kayes WAG
    Amla, F du Plessis 1757 @ 53.24
    Shehzad, Hafeez 1705 @ 39.65
    Finch, Warner 1545 @ 39.61
    Dhawan, Kohli 1531 @ 52.79
    Guptill, Taylor 1522 @ 46.12

    T20 - only Warner, Watson (@ 31.18) and Guptill, Williamson (@ 56.22) have crossed 1000

    Looking at some ODI partnerships by run rate could be a better line of inquiry (qual. 1000 runs)

    1. Amla/De Villiers 2950 runs at 75.64, 6.50 rpo
    2. Hales/Roy 1155 runs at 41.25, 6.34 rpo
    3. Dhoni/Sharma 1024 runs at 44.52, 6.03 rpo
    4. Finch/Warner 1545 runs at 39.61, 5.96 rpo
    5. De Villiers/Miller 1303 runs at 46.53, 5.96 rpo
    6. De Kock/Du Plessis 1451 runs at 55.80, 5.95 rpo
    7. De Villiers/Du Plessis 1654 runs at 45.94, 5.92 rpo
    8. Ramdin/Samuels 1013 runs at 44.04, 5.83 rpo
    9. De Villiers/Duminy 2411 runs at 53.57, 5.81 rpo
    10. Guptill/Latham 1240 runs at 47.69, 5.76 rpo (there ya go Athers)


    • Honourable mention: Buttler/Morgan - 916 runs at 41.63, 7.44 frikin rpo
    • De Villiers makes everyone else look good
    • Indian partnerships involving people like Tendulkar, Ganguly, Dhoni and Sehwag were the only ones that compared to Amla/AB in terms of volume of runs and still struck at 6+. But of course they haven't batted together in the last year. Still, shows that they were doing it first.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    The two best partnerships in games involving Smith, don't involve Smith. Also it's pretty weird that they both include Rogers too.

    He was a solid unit for a blind ginger was Chris Rogers.

    The Warner/Smith partnership is surprisingly mediocre, seems Usman is their talisman for runs.

    Just shows our best ODI batting line up even now has to be:


    Dhawan
    Rohit
    Kohli
    Yuvi
    MSD


    Also how cool is it that all of India's top 5, both in tests and ODIs, feature in those lists
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    All I can say is every Test in that England and India series usually ended up with the two ginger northerners, Stokes and Bairstow, having to repair the carnage caused by a collapsing upper order - having to play uncharacteristic cricket as they both usually go at a good strike rate. Every time I turned on the telly, this was what came on the screen haha

    Stokes isn't a northerner - Christchurch is in the South Island
